Schnell Interpretation des EKG

Author: Dale B. Dubin
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783662223932
Release Date: 2013-07-02
Genre: Medical

Es gibt verschiedene Wege, sich in die Elektrokardiographie einzuarbeiten. ln diesem Buch wird versucht, mit einfachsten Mitteln, die primitiver erscheinen als sie sind, die Grundlagen der EKG-Diagnostik darzustellen. Ohne spezielle cardiologische Vorkenntnisse ist es daher möglich, sich in das EKG einzulesen und im Verlaufe der Lektüre die wesentlichen diagnostischen Kriterien der Routineelektrokardiographie kennenzulernen. Der sparsame Text mit der Möglichkeit, die jeweiligen Kennt nisse durch Abdeckung der seitlich versetzten Antworten zu überprüfen, ist eine didaktisch einprägsame Ergänzung der Abbildungen. Der deutsche Leser sollte beachten, daß die EKG-Kurven, der üblichen amerikanischen Praxis entsprechend, mit Ein fachschreibern, nie mit Mehrfachschreibern dargestellt werden. Ferner erfolgt die Zeitmarkierung nicht mit der uns gewohnten 0,02/0,1-sec-Unterteilung, sondern mit der amerikanischen 0,04/0,2-sec-Unterteilung. Diese Tatsache muß insbesondere bei der Frequenzberechnung berücksich tigt werden. Dieses Orientierungsbuch will sicher kein Lehrbuch ersetzen, kann aber zur Einarbeitung dem Studenten und gegebenen falls dem auf der Intensivstation tätigen Pflegepersonal und zur Rekapitulation dem praktisch tätigen Arzt empfohlen werden.
