This iBook is targeted to medical students struggling to grasp the basic concepts surrounding the electrocardiogram. It outlines how electromagnetic force vectors form from the movement of ions throughout the myocardium. We will then explore the various electrical vectors created during one cardiac cycle and link them to the standard waves seen on an ECG trace. Once these concepts have been established, we will learn about why there are multiple leads in a standard ECG, and more importantly, how these vectors are displayed on these leads. The final section of this book will then focus on interpreting the ECG in clinical practice.

What's New in Version 2.0

[Final Release] (v2.0) All medical content has been reviewed and endorsed by Professor John A. Peters, Professor of Pharmacology at the University of Dundee.

Basics of the ECG

This iBook is one of the best guides I’ve used in terms of understanding key, fundamental topics regarding the ECG. It’s extremely well structured, and most importantly, is interactive throughout. The information is concise and beautifully represented, with questions at the end of each chapter to test what you’ve learnt.

I would highly recommend working through this iBook, even if you already have a basic understanding of interpreting ECG’s as there is also a whole chapter that links the ECG to clinical practice. Overall, this book is absolutely fantastic and one of the best I’ve used. I can say with confidence that I finally know exactly how to approach ECG’s and apply key concepts to clinical practice.

This book is absolutely fantastic, if not one of the best books I've used in terms of understanding fundamental concepts of the ECG! The whole book is interactive throughout, with questions that test your knowledge at the end of each chapter.
The animations alongside the concise information that is beautifully represented is what makes this book stand out from others, I've never seen anything quite like it- you have so much fun working through it that you don't even feel like you're studying!

I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone struggling to interpret ECGs. On a side note, even if you are well versed with ECG's, I'd still recommend this book as it concisely sums up fundamental topics in a fun, interactive way, and even has a final section on applying ECG principles to clinical practice.

Overall, this book is amazing, and I couldn't recommend it enough!
