Podrid’s Real-World ECGs combines traditional case-based workbooks with a versatile Web-based program to offer students, health care professionals, and physicians an indispensable resource for developing and honing the technical skills and systematic approach needed to interpret ECGs with confidence. ECGs from real patient cases offer a complete and in-depth learning experience by focusing on fundamental electrophysiologic properties and clinical concepts as well as detailed discussion of important diagnostic findings and relevant management decisions. Six comprehensive volumes encompass more than 600 individual case studies plus an online repository of hundreds more interactive case studies that include feedback and discussion about the important waveforms and clinical decision-making involved. From an introductory volume that outlines the approaches and tools utilized in the analysis of all ECGs to subsequent volumes covering particular disease entities for which the ECG is useful, readers will take away the in-depth knowledge needed to successfully interpret the spectrum of routine to challenging ECGs they will encounter in their own clinical practice.
Volume 5, Narrow and Wide Complex Tachyarrhythmias and Aberration–Part A: Core Cases presents 61 case studies to allow students to sharpen their skills in reading ECGs and diagnosing both narrow complex tachyarrhythmias (originating in the sinus node, atrium, or AV node) and wide complex tachyarrhythmias (ventricular, supraventricular with aberration, and pacemaker associated). There are also ECGs that present etiologies and mechanism for aberration. Each case offers one or more ECGs that illustrate various causes of aberration, highlighting features that help to establish its etiology.
60 additional cases for further study are available in a separate digital edition, Volume 5B: Practice Cases.
