Forrest Adams describes fetal circulation and the alterations that occur after birth. Jerome Liebman and Robert Plonsey present electrocardiography along with tables of normal values for heart rate, PR interval, and amplitude of R and S waves in the precordial leads. Criteria for ventricular hypertrophy are designated. The intricacies of vectorcardiography are related by Samuel Sapin, with illustrations and tables of normal values for age.
