With over 200 traces to test your knowledge, this book is a first class learning tool for emergency physicians. Basic student-level knowledge of ECGs is assumed, so the reader can move directly to learning about the more complex traces that occur in the emergency department. The level of difficulty is stratified into two sections for specialists in training and specialist emergency physicians.
A minimum amount of information is given beneath each trace, as if in the real situation. The full clinical description is printed in a separate section to avoid the temptation of “looking”.
Accompanied by learning points, and with the cases presented randomly, this book provides a rich source of information on the interpretation of ECGs – a core skill for all emergency department staff.
Over 200 high quality ECGs
An ideal self-educating guide for doctors taking electrocardiograms
Helpfully categorised into level of difficulty

The Kindle edition EKGs are presented in one section and the interpretations many pages later. Why's that a problem? After reviewing an individual EKG, you have to aimlessly wander through the later book to find the appropriate interpretation. They're not linked in any way and you can't use Kindle search to find them. It's totally haphazard. Amazingly dumb!
This is a classic case of a lazy translation of "old" technology (a physical book) into new (Kindle). The author/publisher simply needs to put a link on each EKG to the interpretation and visa versa. That way you can see the EKG then instantly reference the interpretation.
Of course they could re-edit the whole book to put the interpretation on the page following individual EKGs, but the link method would be SO much simpler.
As a result, I would strongly recommend avoiding the Kindle edition until the above problem is fixed. Buy the paperback. That way you can keep a finger in the interpretation section while reviewing the EKGs.
This is the first Kindle text I've ever seen that's so vastly inferior to the physical text.
