Comprehensive Electrocardiology


Welcome to the homepage of Comprehensive Electrocardiology, a comprehensive reference work from Springer.

It is the only complete electrocardiography reference work for cardiologists and trainee cardiologists, providing all currently available knowledge on the application, uses and value of ECG.

Information and more details about the extent of this book project can be found under Aims & Scope.

We welcome you and look forward to your participation in this exciting project.
