About the Author

Dr D. Bruce Foster has been teaching electrocardiography for years to various audiences including interns, residents, nurses, paramedics, and in recent years, physician's assistants. In large measure because of ACLS classes, most of them already had a pretty good understanding of dysrhythmias, so his teaching was primarily focused on the morphologic interpretation of ECGs. Absent a text on the market with which he was happy, he created his own course, and ultimately committed it to paper in the form of the first edition.


From the reviews:

"Acute cardiac syndromes are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, and successful therapy depends upon timely diagnosis which is often made by the ECG. This book is a welcome addition to the body of literature which examines the role of electrocardiography in ACS. It provides first responders with a concise reference for using the ECG to diagnose ACS and choose appropriate therapies in acute care settings." (Scott W. Ard, MD, BS(Ochsner Clinic Foundation), Doody's, June 2007)
