Marriott's Practical Electrocardiography, 11th edition

by Galen S Wagner MD
  • Soft Cover
The gold standard text on interpretation of ECG recordings is now in its revised Eleventh Edition. Coverage of arrhythmias—the largest portion of the book—has been thoroughly updated for this edition, and more than 400 new illustrations have been added. The book is filled with ECG recordings, anatomical drawings, and dozens of tables, and has a reader-friendly design with strategic use of a second color. Glossaries at the end of each chapter reinforce new terms. For this edition, the author has created a more functional layout. A bound-in CD-ROM includes animations correlated with ECGs. =Review "This update of a comprehensive manual for ECG interpretation now includes a chapter on artificial cardiac pacemakers....This book serves to provide a basic understanding of the rules governing ECG interpretation as well as to provide insight into the cardiac physiology responsible for normal and abnormal ECG tracings. The author purposely emphasizes a simplistic approach to everyday ECG interpretation rather than focusing on the complexities of rare findings. "For over 50 years, this has been a must have book for medical students, residents, and fellows in training. After a thorough introduction to the normal ECG, each chapter focuses on various etiologies of ECG derangements. Chapters are well equipped with easy to understand graphics and illustration, numerous ECG tracings to support the text, and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each chapter succeeds in being a standalone lesson for quick review....This book is beneficial for those interested in attaining ECG interpretation skills."—Doody's Book Review Service (Weighted Numerical Score: 93; 4 Stars) =Table Of Contents Section I:BASIC CONCEPTS Chapter 1 Cardiac Electrical Activity The Book: Marriott's Practical Electrocardiography, 11th Edition The Electrocardiogram Anatomic Orientation of the Heart Chapter 2 Recording The Electrocardiogram The Standard 12-Lead Electrocardiogram Alternative Displays of the 12 Standard Electrocardiogram Leads Alternative Electrode Placement Chapter 3 Interpretation of the Normal Electrocardiogram Electrocardiographic Features Rate and Regularity P-Wave Morphology Section II:ABNORMAL WAVE MORPHOLOGY Chapter 4 Chamber Enlargement Chamber Enlargement Atrial Enlargement Systematic Approach to the Evaluation of Atrial Enlargement Chapter 5 Intraventricular Conduction Abnormalities Normal Conduction Bundle-Branch and Fascicular Blocks Chapter 6 Ventricular Preexcitation Historical Perspective Clinical Perspective Chapter 7 Myocardial Ischemia, Injury, and Infarction Introduction to Ischemia and Infarction Electrocardiographic Changes Chapter 8 Increased Myocardial Demand Changes in the ST Segment Chapter 9 Insufficient Blood Supply Changes in the ST Segment Changes in the T Wave Changes in the QRS Complex Chapter 10 Myocardial Infarction Phases of the Infarction Process Infarcting Phase Chapter 11 Miscellaneous Conditions Cardiomyopathies Pericardial Abnormalities Section III:ABNORMAL RHYTHMS Chapter 12 Introduction to Arrhythmias Approach to Arrhythmia Diagnosis Problems of Automaticity Chapter 13 Premature Beats Premature Beat Terminology Differential Diagnosis of Wide Premature Beats Chapter 14 Accelerated Automaticity Introduction to Accelerated Automaticity Sinus Tachycardia Chapter 15 Reentrant Atrial Tachyarrhythmias: The Atrial Flutter/Fibrillation Spectrum Paroxysmal Atrial Tachycardia Atrial Rate and Regularity in Atrial Flutter/Fibrillation Chapter 16 Reentrant Junctional Tachyarrhythmias Introduction to Re-entrant Junctional Tachyarrhythmias Varieties of Re-entrant Junctional Tachyarrhythmias Chapter 17 Reentrant Ventricular Tachyarrhythmias Varieties of Ventricular Tachyarrhythmias Description Chapter 18 Ventricular Versus Supraventricular With Aberrant Conduction Circumstances Producing Aberrancy Characteristics Chapter 19 Decreased Automaticity Mechanisms of Bradyarrhythmias of Decreased Automaticity Sinoatrial Block Chapter 20 Atrioventricular Block Severity of Atrioventricular Block Location of Atrioventricular Block Chapter 21 Artificial Cardiac Pacemakers Basic Concepts of the Artificial Pacemaker Pacemaker Modes and Dual-Chamber Pacing Chapter 22 Dr. Marriott's Systematic Approach to the Diagnosis of Arrhythmias Dr. Marriott's Systematic Approach to the Diagnosis of Arrhythmias index
