This comprehensive, "state of the art" review of ambulatory electrocardiographic recordings is the edited product of a workshop organized by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Both the technical and clinical sections are well done.
In the chapters on technical aspects of ambulatory recording desirable specifications for recorders are reviewed; limitations of presently available event recorders and computerized scanners are clearly stated; and the need, as well as current undertakings, to establish standards for computer recognition of rhythm disturbances is discussed at length. The importance of simultaneously recording two electrocardiographic channels in order to improve P-wave detection is discussed.
