    Review quote
    "An excellent book... extremely readable, well organised and illustrated with a large number of diagrams and ECG traces. There is certainly information suitable for beginners, but the more advanced reader is also likely to find something of value. I think it would prove a useful addition to any practice bookshelf and be read by veterinary nurses, students and vets alike." - Veterinary Times
    Back cover copy
    "This guide aims to provide an introduction for veterinary practitioners whose ECG is collecting dust and it achieves its aim admirably." European Journal of Companion Animal Practice This book provides all the information that veterinarians need when using electrocardiography techniques for the first time. As the science and technology of this area develops, so too does its usefulness. Yet it can often seem a daunting prospect. Small Animal ECGs is aimed squarely at the beginner, and is designed specifically for ease of use. It includes not only ECG tracings, but also clear and simple explanatory diagrams that accompany the text. New in this edition: - More than 50 new ECG tracings - New chapters on the management and treatment of arrhythmias and on choosing an ECG recorder - Chapters reorganised and reordered to aid learning This book contains everything that the veterinary professional will need to know when starting out recording and interpreting ECGs, whether they are practicing or still studying.
