Author Biography

Javier García-Niebla., Servicios Sanitarios del Área de Salud de El Hierro, Valle del Golfo Health Center. Ex-member of the Board of Directors, Spanish Association of Nursing in Cardiology. Collaborating lecturer of the University School of Nursing. University Hospital La. Candelaria, Spain.

Javier García Niebla is a registe¬red nurse with a degree in Nursing from the Universi¬ty of La Laguna and an as¬sociate lecturer at the Uni¬versity School of Nursing, Hospital “Ntra. Sra. de La Candelaria”. For almost six years he directed the webpage of the Spanish Association of Nursing in Cardiology. As an investi¬gator and author, he has published in dozens of scientific journals in the field of cardiology and is a recognized expert in elec¬trocardiography, and a re¬gular collaborator of Prof. Antoni Bayés de Luna.
