This title provides ECG reference material in a fast and easy to use format. It is a wonderful reference for ECG data and provides samples of actual small animal ECG results with treatment recommendations. Easy to follow explanations of how to perform and interpret electrocardiograms are included. This presentation includes a brief review of physiology, technique and equipment, and interpretation of common electrocardiographic abnormalities. The friendly, non-textbook approach along with the use of helpful symbols, tips and examples, aid practitioners in learning to focus on the most elusive of features. A helpful drug formulary is provided in the appendix. The interpretation material is extremely helpful for the small animal practitioner, and the simple yet in-depth explanations are wonderful for the small animal technician. An ECG ruler which can be purchased separately allows the veterinarian to quickly determine heart rates and measure intervals easily and accurately. This is an excellent book for practitioners to keep by the ECG unit to insure that they do not miss even the slightest indication of cardiac irregularity.

In this concise and practical review, the authors recognize that among the range of cardiac investigations available to veterinarians, the standard electrocardiogram (ECG) is an indispensable, safe and inexpensive test in assessing dogs and cats with heart disease. Following discussion of the principles of electrocardiography, the book systematically explores the evaluation of the ECG—including determination of heart rate, measurement of intervals, derivation of the mean electrical axis, and criteria for atrial and ventricular enlargement or hypertrophy. It also examines intraventricular conduction disturbances and both normal and abnormal cardiac rhythms. Flow charts are provided to help users diagnose arrhythmias with confidence and 46 real cases and ECG tracings reinforce the principles and encourage discussion. Rapid Review of ECG Interpretation in Small Animal Practice is illustrated throughout and is of value to all veterinary practitioners, technicians, and students who wish to improve their skills in interpreting ECGs.

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. The unique page size allows presentation of all 12-lead ECGs across a single page for clarity. Several of the cases incorporate chest X-rays and coronary angiograms illustrating the appearances that are associated with various cardiac conditions. All the cases are graded in difficulty and are cross-referenced to the new editions of ECG Made Easy and ECG in Practice for further information. For this Fourth Edition over 30 new ECGs have been included, mainly to provide clearer examples, though the book deliberately retains some technically poor records to maintain a ’real-world’ perspective.
