"Electrocardiography in Emergency, Acute, and Critical Care is essential reading for all clinician involved in acute medicine. Despite many believing that it is a static science, our understanding of electrophysiology continues to evolve. This text is useful to new and more experienced clinicians alike, and is a vital resource for all emergency departments."
(Professor Louise Cullen, PreEminent Staff Specialist, Emergency & Trauma Center, Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital; Associate Professor, University of Queensland; Adjunct Professor, Queensland University of Technology)
"Too many ECG books are designed for new learners or electrophysiologists . . . this second edition by Drs. Mattu, Tabas and Brady, EM's ranking experts in electrocardiology, is designed to teach whether you are starting out or are an experienced clinician. I love the way it provides background, great ECG examples, most common causes of the ECG abnormality and then key teaching points. This is now my go to ECG text and I recommend it to anybody who wants to keep leaning how to be better at reading ECGs."
(Corey M. Slovis, MD, FACEP, Professor and Chairman, Department of Emergency Medicine, Vanderbilt University Medical Center; Medical Director, Metro Nashville Fire Department and International Airport)
"I would heartily recommend this text to residents and interns who work in acute care settings. This book will inevitably be an invaluable resource for examinations. However, the value of this book goes far beyond examinations and is a fantastic book for any physician or medical student to have on their bookshelf, as a handy reference for all manner of clinical presentations."
