    Family physicians are often the first, and sometimes the only, point of contact for many patients within the health care system. The standard 12-lead electrocardiogram is one of the most common tests obtained and interpreted by the family physician, with most of the physicians reading their own recordings and basing clinical decisions on their findings. It has been shown that family physicians can achieve proficiency in the interpretation of over 95 percent of all electrocardiogram findings seen in the primary care setting. Although computerized interpretation is widely available, it is considered unreliable in up to 20 percent of the cases, making competency and interpretation by family physicians an essential skill. This book provides the necessary skills for family physicians to use in interpreting electrocardiograms, both in their offices and in the emergency rooms of their hospitals. It also should prove of value to other primary care physicians, as well as medical students and residents of nearly all medical specialties. As the subtitle states, this book is about the essential elements involved in electrocardiographic interpretation. It is not all inclusive. However, it does cover the abnormalities most likely to be seen by family physicians in their everyday practice of medicine.

    In the era of evidence-based medicine, clinicians draw upon a vast resource of research-based evidence to guide their practice. However, finding this information is not always easy, particularly when it is most needed. In the case of respiratory medicine which covers more than 40 individual conditions, the research-based evidence may be limited and/or disproportionate to the incidence of the condition. Guidelines are available but difficult and time consuming to find.

    This book is designed to overcome this problem. Many of the key recommendations to be found in current evidence-based guidelines are presented in a uniform and accessible format. The same format has been used for expert opinion on best practice where the evidence base is limited. The design of this book makes locating the information needed both quick and simple, and the succinct yet easy-to-read nature of the text means that key points can be reviewed and assimilated rapidly. The text is enhanced by a number of summary boxes and tables for quick reference to the key points covered in the narrative. A large number of these sections also have radiological images illustrating the relevant abnormalities. Written by experts in their field, this book presents a succinct overview based on both best practice and available research evidence.
