The following book reviews originally appeared in The Journal of the American Medical Association.
The volume is a translation into book form of a recent postgraduate course on "Electrocardiography in Infants and Children," held at the Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit. This approach does not permit presentation of a coherent, comprehensive treatise. There are marked variations from author to author both in quality and quantity; there are frequent repetitions from chapter to chapter; and several important topics are almost completely omitted, as, for example, primary myocardiopathies.
There is a considerable amount of valuable information in the volume. Some of the general chapters cover their subjects very well. Particularly noteworthy in this regard are the chapters on the relationship of the standard electrocardiograms to the vectorcardiogram and the normal ECG in the newborn and infant (Liebman), and the marvelously compressed chapter on the normal ECG and vectorcardiogram in children (Namin and Miller).
