This is a book for any care provider - from advanced students and nurses to residents and even specialists - who needs to master the interpretation of ECGs, especially while "on the spot" at the point of care. This easy-to-use, visual guide takes a novel approach, foregrounding the visual clues or "keys" that readers can learn to recognize in ECGs and thus make rapid decisions about next steps at the point of care. The comparatively minimal text focuses on "must-know" information about the underlying cause of ECG abnormalities.
