The ECG is the "gold standard" diagnostic technique for the evaluation of cardiac arrhythmias, conduction disorders, and pre-excitation syndrome, as well as being essential for the diagnosis and evaluation of myocardial ischemia and acute myocardial infarction.
This landmark text provides a clear and comprehensive analysis of the relation between these ECG abnormalities and different heart diseases. Diagnostic aspects are emphasized more than the electrophysiologic mechanisms underlying the ECG images, making this text especially relevant for the clinician. Extensive illustrations help explain the main ECG phenomena and accompany every arrhythmia. This indispensable reference, written by a prominent cardiologist, will help readers learn easily and in a well organized fashion, the diagnostic principles of clinical electrocardiography, and provide them with the basic knowledge that will allow them to resolve most of the problems they encounter.

"It was a pleasant surprise to discover this textbook, which, to my mind, is the best of all because of its clarity and completeness." "Areas where clinicians feel particularly challenged, such as arrhythmias and blocks, are presented with consummate mastery. This is a magnificent book that will be welcomed by all who practice and teach electrocardiography."
Internal Medicine World Report on the first edition
"The book will certainly be helpful to every clinician involved in practical electrocardiography. It can certainly be recommended to all internists and fellows in training, not only to those undergoing training in cardiology."
"I do not hesitate to warmly recommend this authoritative book to all cardiologists, internists, anesthetists, and trainees in these specialties, as well as experienced nurses working in intensive care and coronary care units. I look forward to the third edition."
"Dr. Bayés de Luna’s book will be useful for cardiologists and other internists, however, the main benefit is expected for patients with the known and suspected cardiovascular disease. Reading in the introduction that the author has thirty years experience in ECG teaching the high didactic standard of this tile is not surprising."
"The first edition of this book was targeted mainly at cardiologists, whereas this text has a much broader appeal and would be suitable for medical students, internal medicine specialists, general practitioners, pediatricians, geriatricians, anesthetists, and nurses.
"It covers all areas of electrocardiography. There are sections on Bayés’ Theorem in analyzing the electrocardiogram. There are many illustrations and tables which are very helpful. The quality of the electrocardiograms presented is good. The section on arrhythmias has been reorganized and rewritten from one overwhelming unit in the first edition to four well-defined chapters in the second edition.
"This is a good textbook and should be appreciated by all who are interested in learning basic concepts of electrocardiography."
--Doody’s Review Service
"The text is comprehensive and covers all of the areas required. ...This book must be considered in the top rank of electrocardiographic textbooks."
--Journal of Interventional Cardiology
