The 12-Lead ECG: In Acute Myocardial Infarction

This book reflects the need of EMTs, paramedics, emergency and flight nurses to utilize more sophisticated equipment to assess myocardial infarction, and reduce the damage it does to the heart. This is the first book to focus exclusively on 12-lead interpretation for the prehospital professional. Contents also include the effects of infarction location and coronary occlusion.

By far the best Pre-Hospital ECG book.

I have always been fascinated by ECG's. I have looked at and/or read nearly every ECG interpretation book out there. As a paramedic by far the best and most pertinent book for prehospital interpretation is Phalen. I hate reading paramedicine books that are still teaching you how to take a pulse and blood pressure. NO @$#%!!! Like another reviewer states, Phalen deals with AMI's, their mimmickers, and nothing else. No basics. If you can't read a 3 lead. Don't buy this book. Once you can this is the one to take you through the next step to be proficient at diagnosing an AMI on a 12 lead.

Clear, concise, and VERY easy to understand. Excellent Book

As a paramedic, it has become essential to understand 12-lead ECG analysis and this book tops my list of recommendations for those needing to understand how to interpret 12-leads. Phalen does an excellent job of presenting just the material necessary to deteminine if and where infarction may be occurring. I highly recommend this book for all emergency cardiac care providers. This book would be especially helpful to those starting to use 12 lead ECG's in the pre-hospital setting.


Tim Phalen has written a excellent book for the paramedic or flight nurse. Of the dozen ECG textbooks on the market, this book is the first I recommend. The book assumes a basic knowledge of ECG rhythm interpretation, and then presents the essentials of 12 lead ECG interpretation in light of the AMI. Tim uses a straight forward approach that explains the concepts without patronizing the reader. J. Nile Barnes Assistant Professor EMS Programs Austin Community Colleg
