About this book


Over the last decade, there has been a tremendous improvement in our understanding of basic cardiac electrophysiology. Most introductory electrocardiogram (ECG) books teach via pattern recognition and do not incorporate new pathophysiologic information.

There is a great need for a simple book that teaches electrocardiography from a pathophysiologic basis. ECG Interpretation: From Pathophysiology to Clinical Application has been written to fill this gap. It can be utilized as a reference - chapter by chapter or read throughout for an overview. Each chapter will end with questions that provide a chapter review. Case studies are highlighted at the end of the book that integrate the multiple principles of electrocardiography.

Fred Kusumoto, MD is Associate Professor of Medicine, Electrophysiology and Pacing Service, Division of Cardiovascular Diseases, Department of Medicine, Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville, Florida.
