Book review

The electrocardiogram (ECG) was introduced more than 100 years ago by Willem Einthoven (for which he was awarded a Nobel Prize in Medicine) and has become the ‘gold standard’ technique for diagnosing cardiac arrhythmias, myocardial infarctions and other coronary events. To this day the initial diagnosis and treatment of acute coronary syndromes represents one of the key performance indicators for paramedics in the pre-hospital environment and so this book really hits the bullseye when it comes to improving standards.
