Description

Electrocardiography of Laboratory Animals is the only book covering electrocardiography of laboratory animals, including dogs, mini-pigs, and cynomologus monkeys. As more countries institute requirements for the care of laboratory animals in research, this publication offers an effective standard on performing and analyzing ECGs. Topics covered include safety electrocardiography, toxicology, safety pharmacology, and telemetry. Electrocardiography of Laboratory Animals will assist biological and medical researchers, veterinarians, zoologists, and students in understanding electrocardiography of various species of animals used in research.

Review Text

".this book might be beneficial to ECG neophytes, veterinary and laboratory technicians who are involved in performing ECGs, and veterinary and graduate students."-- Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15-Sep-14

"There are a number of normal variants in the electrocardiograms of common laboratory animals, say Richig and Sleeper, and if researchers know what is normal for the particular species they are working with, they can avoid excluding those individuals which are within these normal variant ranges."-- ProtoView.com, April 2014
