It explains everything from the anatomy of the heart to the different conditions in an easy to read layout.
There are introductory chapters on first principles, understanding the normal ECG and a six-step interpretation method. The explanation of ECG vectors and the use of illustrations with the six-step method are particularly accomplished.
The subsequent chapters are divided by pathology: Sinoatrial node dysfunction, conduction abnormalities, ectopic beats, atrial arrhythmias, SVTs, broad-complex tachyarrhythmias, ischaemia and infarction, inherited arrhythmias and a general sweep-up chapter. For each, there are relevant ECGs with text setting out the key features, underlying pathophysiology, clinical relevance and management
Like all of the books I have seen from this new and rapidly-expanding series, it works best if used as an introductory text or revision aid. Rather than replacing the Oxford Handbooks series, the Pocket Tutor series is a useful adjunct, probably best suited to use by clinical medical students and foundation doctors.
