A Master of EKG Education Dies

On August 31, 2007, world-renowned cardiologist Dr. Henry "Barney" Marriott passed away. Marriott, 90, was best remembered for contributions to the field of ECG interpretation. I remember watching as hoards of people strained to watch the master at work, interpreting the mechanisms of arrhythmias by the findings on EKG and remarkable intuition.

He will be sorely missed.

According to
The Marriott Heart Foundation is planning a memorial service in Chicago at the ACC to celebrate his life, and any photos, books, memorabilia, or letters that can be shared at this event can be passed along to Dr. Jonni Cooper-Marriott at
I'd encourage anyone with memorabilia to contribute.
