Very helpful for ECG

The book titled "Interactive Electrocardiography" and the accompanying "CD-ROM", both prepared by Dr. Curtis M. Rimmerman and Dr. Anil K.Jain, is one of the best publications in this field. It is obvious that serious efforts have been made to draft this book and the CD-ROM. The experience of the authors is evidently reflected in the ECG comments. The book is truly and educating one and easy to use. When I finished reviewing the contents of the CD-ROM, I realized that I have become much more knowledgeable and experienced in association with ECG. This book and the CD-ROM is an invaluable source for all the researchers including those seeking very basic information on ECG as well as those investigating the most advanced features and characteristics of the ECG and practices. I would like to congratulate the authors for their hard and precious work and use this opportunity to express that I would like to see new editions of this book in the future. I sincerely and strongly recommend this book and the CD-ROM to anyone interested in ECG.

great for busy housestaff

I have only started doing practice ECGs and I really like this, explanations are brief and clear. I like the way changes are emphasized with arrows.

Very useful for daily practice

If you need something to "train" your EKG knowledge and become "skilled" this book + CD is for you!! Practical, easy to understand, exhaustive and very very useful for daily practice. The CD is well made, and fast so you can practice even if you have 5 minutes of "free times" in your daily practice Lorenzo MD

The definitive EKG workbook and CD-ROM

Good news. You can stop contemplating which EKG tutorial you want to purchase. Through med school, residency, and cardiology fellowship I had used 9 EKG texts/CD-ROMs prior to finding Dr.Rimmerman and Jain's . Once I came across this incredible CD-ROM and workbook, I used it exclusively in preparing for the EKG portion of the Cardiology boards. At the exam, many others were discussing the difficulty and time constraints of the 2 hour EKG module. Solely with the help of Dr.Rimmerman's text, I was finished in half the allotted time. By following the text/CD ROM of Dr.Rimmerman, I scored well into the top decile. Dr.Rimmerman is to EKGs as Netter is to medical illustration. This text/CD-ROM had to take years to assemble and painstakingly reviews ~630 EKGs in three sections that are well delineated according to difficulty. The reader evaluates the hardcopy EKG and then codes his/her answer into the CD ROM. This is followed by immediate, constructive feedback through multiple channels. First and foremost, there are colored arrows that are displayed over the computerized EKG. Then there is an easily interpreted paragraph or two describing all of the intricate details of the EKG. There are also hyperlinks to similar findings in other EKGs. It kills me that I was unaware of this text as a student or resident. Quite simply, if you want to learn EKGs this text is MANDATORY. This book is without a doubt for all levels. Allied medical personnel, nursing students and graduates, and medical students all the way up to electrophysiologists have so much to gain from this text. Drs.Rimmerman and Jain, through their meticulous attention to detail, have created the definitive workbook/CD ROM for learning EKGs. I am forever grateful to their endeavor.

Essential tutorial

This is an excellent resource. I am completing my cardiology fellowship, and this book/CD has quickly improved my ECG reading skills. The adage "practice makes perfect" is unfortunately not true for interpreting ECGs. If you are incorrectly reading ECGs, then you reinforce errors. This program includes about 700 ECGs in three sections, ranging from the basics of normal sinus rhythm to acute myocardial infarctions with left bundle branch blocks. You simply enter your interpretation of the ECG, and the CD checks your conclusion. It points out salient ECG features, further describes the findings, and provides hyperlinks to related ECGs in order to reinforce teaching points. "Perfect practice makes perfect." When used correctly, this tutorial reinforces the subtleties of ECGs and will enhance your clinical skills. I recommend this book not only for cardiologists, but also for nursing students, nurses, medical students, residents, and general internists. Interactive Electrocardiography is my primary reference for studying for the ECG sections of the cardiology boards, however, it was the tutorial I needed as a medical student. I give this program five out of five stars and think it is a priceless resource for learning to read ECGs.
