ECGs for Beginners Ebook
It is my pleasure to present this ECG book for
beginners, a book that I would have liked to own
when I began to study electrocardiography. It has
been written with beginners in mind, therefore it
is a book for ‘readers with little knowledge of the
subject’ who want to learn ‘quickly and didactically’,
uncovering what appears to be complex or
mysterious because in fact it is an essential part of
their professional work. Figures and diagrams,
many of them already published in my previous
books, in combination with a succinct text have
been carefully put together for this purpose.
I am proud to be able to help these readers so
that the study of the ECG may be easier for them.
It is something I have always tried to do in my
nearly 50 years as a university professor, and something
my students have often remarked on. I have
written previous and more extensive ECG books in
English, Catalan and Spanish in the last 40 years,
which have been translated into eight languages
with more than 20 editions. However, this new
book is special because it contains the essentials of
the ECG: the cheapest, the quickest and most
useful technique that has existed in medicine for
over 100 years.
This book contains text in bold that indicates
certain points that I feel are especially important.
The reader will also find letters in the margins that
refer to key concepts for a correct understanding
of the ECG. At the end of each chapter, these
reference points are used in a short quiz for selfassessment.
In this way, residents of any medical
specialization, not only cardiology, but also general
practitioners, intensivists, anesthesiologists, pediatricians,
medical students, and nurses will be able
to understand normal and pathologic ECG morphologies,
recognizing the patterns and understanding
how they originate.
