This book is based on material collected during more than 25 years of hospital practice and contains a vast number of representative electrocardiograms with an appropriate descriptive text. The reproductions are of superior quality since most of the tracings were recorded with a photographic machine that provides a high contrast record as well as good fidelity.
The author uses his teaching experience quite well in presenting the material by the "classic" approach of repeated exposure to various examples of normal and abnormal material. In fact, he has provided a rather extensive atlas of electrocardiography with an excellent index. Some of the chapters have well over 100 illustrative tracings.
The book starts with a chapter on basic electrophysiology, and the components of the normal ECG are discussed in detail. The commonly utilized lead systems are clearly presented and well illustrated.
A chapter is devoted to hypertrophy, strain, enlargement, and preponderance. As
