From the Jacket

The most effective self-assessment tool for any clinician who interprets ECGs! This unique resource offers 200 full-sized, three-channel ECGs with lead II rhythm strips, in a format that parallels the cardiology board exam. Each ECG is accompanied by a brief clinical history and followed by a narrative interpretation and board simulati...
