ReviewsShow

  • The ECG Criteria Book will be a nice supplement to the main text.  It is a nice size for students to take on clinical rotations.

  • I teach EKG interpretation to 4th year medical students and provide each student with a copy of this book. It fits into a lab coat pocket. There is a small EKG tracing with each example.  Provides more information than most entry level interpreters need, but is a fantastic resource.  Highly recommended!

  • I bought this book becuase I needed a quick and easy-to-carry ECG tool. This is the pocket version of the O'Keefe ECG book and has all the ECG reading criteria, minus the clinical cases. It is easy to browse and can make your life a lot easier especially when you have to read hundreds of ECGs a day.

  • I bought this book with "The complete guide to ECG's".  The pocket version is easy to carry, but still contains all you need to know about ECG interpretation.  It is extremely useful in my day's work in which I sometimes need to make very quick decisions based on ECG findings.
