This iBook is targeted to medical students struggling to grasp the basic concepts surrounding the electrocardiogram. It outlines how electromagnetic force vectors form from the movement of ions throughout the myocardium. We will then explore the various electrical vectors created during one cardiac cycle and link them to the standard waves seen on an ECG trace. Once these concepts have been established, we will learn about why there are multiple leads in a standard ECG, and more importantly, how these vectors are displayed on these leads. The final section of this book will then focus on interpreting the ECG in clinical practice.
I highly recommend and as an educator request my students download this. Well done.
This book really helped me to understand ECGs and has some lovely illustrations
God bless the creators of this book. This book is extremely well illustrated, very interactive and it's free! This person deserves an award for their awesomeness. I hardly ever write reviews but i'm too impressed by the quality of this book. Definitely one of the best books in the Apple Store. I will be recommending it to my fellow medical students. Thanks again!
