ABSTRACT

This paperback illustrates the electrocardiograms of common arrhythmias and their interpretation. The first chapter deals with the formation of the automatic impulse and its conduction to the common myocardium; the second describes the standard electrocardiogram and explains how deflections and intervals are analyzed. The modalities of abnormal conduction and a descriptive listing of ectopic beats and rhythms, including flutter and fibrillation, are presented in the third and fourth chapters; the artificial pacemaker rhythms are also presented.
