dc.description.abstractThe aim of this book is to be able to interpret Electrocardiograms avoiding all possible errors. The accuracy of the interpretation is of great importance but a true diagnosis is far more significant. This book focuses on the recognition and interpretation of arrhythmias, one of the most important clinical tools in medicine. The greatest degree of accuracy is achieved by familiarising with the normal ECG that enables the recognition of abnormal patterns to be made immediately. Firstly, it is necessary to acquaint the function of the heart and the electrical activity in order to broaden our understanding of how the ECG detects this electrical activity. It is essential to know the characteristic patterns of a normal ECG and to categorise a wide array of morphologic patterns along with determining abnormal ECG patterns to be diagnostic of particular pathological entities. A series of practical experiments have been carried out on various subjects using the BIOPAC system to record electrical signals of the heart. Subjects were asked to perform various tasks such as lying down, sitting, deep breathing and exercising to detect electrical signals in different conditions and eventually interpret the data. The ethical issue toward each subject is also too important, so it was necessary to let the subject know about any risk factors during experiment. For this purpose, a Volunteer Information Sheet was designed during this work for each subject to read and be aware of all the ethical issues. Also, another Patient Consent Form was designed to make sure that each volunteer fully understands the procedures. Volunteer Questionnaire is necessary to make sure volunteer that there is no problem, which can affect the experimental results. Finally, ECG results were interpreted using a systematic approach and the precise findings were correlated with the pathophysiology and clinical status of the patient. This book concludes with a thorough investigation into the essential techniques and skills required to accurately interpret an ECG, eliminating as many errors as possible.en
