Sydney, New South Wales (PRWEB) March 26, 2012
Elsevier Australia is proud to announce publication of Professor Rohan Jayasinghe’s 'ECG Workbook'.
This is a highly-recommended cardiology reference that will enhance students’ and clinicians’ ability to correctly and efficiently interpret ECGs in a busy clinical setting.
As well as being an ideal university book for clinical year medical students in Australia and New Zealand, the 'ECG Workbook' will be of use to JMOs, nurses, paramedics and hospital-based GP trainees.
The author takes a logical, systematic approach to ECG diagnosis. He presents real case studies throughout, giving readers a realistic picture of ECG diagnoses – normal and abnormal – that are commonly encountered in local clinical practice.
Each ECG in this excellent Elsevier publication is presented with a brief clinical synopsis. The reader is guided through the ECG to make the clinical diagnosis and decide on the appropriate management.
Readers proceed through the 'ECG Workbook' at their own pace, answering structured questions for each ECG. This creates a systematic process for ECG interpretation that will serve both students and clinicians well in future work.
