Echocardiography 2th Edition
Released in 2007 and the first handbook-sized practical training guide to provide easily accessible, detailed information on how to get good images, make key measurements and report findings, the first edition of Echocardiography rapidly become a bestselling echocardiography manual. Now in its second edition, and reflecting the most recent international cardiology and echocariography society guidelines, the handbook has been extensively updated throughout and features new sections covering 3D echocardiography, intracardiac echocardiography, contrast echocardiography, speckle tracking echocardiography and emergency echocardiography. In full colour throughout, the text is illustrated with over 300 images and comes with a DVD resource of over 175 image loops. Also including reference ranges to help with reporting and accreditation exam preparation, Echocardiography remains the essential reference for trainees undergoing accreditation and a daily source of information for those who perform clinical echocardiography.
Atlas of Pediatric and Youth ECG
by Gabriele Bronzetti
This book describes in detail the specific aspects of ECG during childhood and adolescence, pursuing an accessible, didactic and easy-to-read approach. Instructive, self-contained and intelligently written, it succeeds in making this diagnostic tool, the interpretation of which is especially complex in younger patients, more comprehensible, while also offering a sound and extensive reference guide for all those who diagnose young patients with electrocardiography. Though ECG produces a relatively simple set of readings, its interpretation and diagnosis are complex. If misinterpreted, a “butterfly effect” of hidden, often neglected heart signals can lead to important and sometimes devastating consequences. Featuring an exceptionally wide range of ECG recordings and examples, the volume sheds new light on the importance of electrophysiological examinations for patients still in their developmental years and provides advice on the use of ECG in connection with recent regulations on the participation of children, adolescents and young athletes in sports. Thanks to the variety of scenarios described, from the most frequent to the most insidious, this work will appeal to a broad readership, from cardiologists and pediatricians to family physicians, anesthesiologists, doctors in sports medicine, students and nurses.
150 Practice ECGs: Interpretation and Review 3th Edition
by George J. Taylor
The third edition of 150 Practice ECGs: Interpretation and Review combines practice tracings with clinical cardiology, providing students with the practical knowledge necessary to read, interpret, and understand ECGs. This essential review book is organized into three sections: introductory text reviewing ECG diagnostic criteria, pathophysiology, and clinical correlation; 150 ECG tracings with a brief clinical history; and interpretation and teaching points for each of the 150 ECGs. 150 Practice ECGs: Interpretation and Review, 3rd Edition is ideal as an introductory text for medical and nursing students at any stage of training, for residents and fellows as a refresher before board exams, and for the sophisticated student/teacher as a comprehensive teaching file.

Cardiac Electrophysiology Without Fluoroscopy
by Riccardo Proietti
This book reflects how the concern regarding the effects of radiation exposure in patients and health personnel involved in cardiac electrophysiology (EP) has inspired new developments in cardiac electrophysiology procedures without the use of fluoroscopy. This innovative method has become a subspecialty within electrophysioloy with several EP laboratories around the world adopting an exclusive non-fluoroscopy approach. It features guidance on how to use three dimensional (3D) navigation systems, ablation energy sources and zero-fluorospic implantation of cardiac electronic devices. The potential complications and associated preventative methods with utilising RFCA are also described. Cardiac Electrophysiology Without Fluoroscopy offers a thorough description of the technique correlated to the performance of EP procedure without the use of radiation, and provides a valuable resource for those seeking a practically applicable guide on how to perform cardiac EP without fluoroscopy, including practising and trainee electrophysiologists, cardiac imagers, general cardiologists and emergency medicine physicians.
150 ECG Problems 4th Edition
by John Hampton DM MA DPhil FRCP FFPM FES
This book offers 150 12-lead ECGs and rhythm strips, each with a clinical case history and question. The full ECG is reproduced and a study of it with the case history should be enough to give an answer. On the back the case is examined, with a description of the main features of the ECG along with a clinical interpretation and a "what to do" section. The cases are graded in difficulty. "I would highly recommend it, not only for my younger colleagues and students, but also to colleagues in different specialties."Reviewed by Perfusion, Apr 2015

ECGs for the Emergency Physician 1
With over 200 traces to test your knowledge, this book is a first class learning tool for emergency physicians. Basic student-level knowledge of ECGs is assumed, so the reader can move directly to learning about the more complex traces that occur in the emergency department. The level of difficulty is stratified into two sections for specialists in training and specialist emergency physicians. A minimum amount of information is given beneath each trace, as if in the real situation. The full clinical description is printed in a separate section to avoid the temptation of “looking”. Accompanied by learning points, and with the cases presented randomly, this book provides a rich source of information on the interpretation of ECGs – a core skill for all emergency department staff.
