Dr Michael Belz should be spelt thus.
Section 1 - supraventricular rhythms
- normal sinus rhythm is Dean Jenkins
- sinus arrhythmia is Gowan Creamer then a House Surgeon at Waikato
- AVRT antidromic was supplied by Michael Belz
- SVT with aberrancy was supplied by David Nicholls now a medical registrar in Wellington
Section 2 - Ventricular rhythms
- polymorphic VT was supplied by the CCU at Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport, Wales
- Ventricular flutter was the most difficult recording to scan, clean and reproduce and took Stephen Gerred several weeks to finish.

Section 3 - Bundle Branch Block
- incomplete RBBB is Stephen Gerred
Section 4 - Heart Block
Section 5 - Pacemakers
- Ventricular pacemaker - Fig. 44.2 is entirely wrong and is a copy of Fig. 5.3 Digoxin effect! The real Fig. 44.2 is shown below.

Section 6 - Ischaemic Heart Disease
- Acute anteroseptal MI - This recording has been borrowed by the University of Wales College of Medicine for their 1st Clinical Year Medical Block Assessment
- Acute Inferior MI was the first recording to be scanned and reprinted by us. We made it difficult to see that the process would work. It was photocopied crumpled into a ball, flattened and photocopied again before scanning.
- Very early acute inferior MI was supplied by David Nicholls
- Acute right ventricular MI - OK the box showing V4R was added so it was a little cheat.
Section 7 - Hypertrophy Patterns
