4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This book provides novice to expert nurses easily accessible information on rhythms and dysrhythmias....This is a great book for students and novice nurses learning rhythms. Its size lends itself to being used daily on the clinical unit."--Doody's Review Service
A true pocket guide for working nurses, Nurse to Nurse: ECG Interpretation offers peer-to-peer guidance to help you learn and remember the different ECG rhythms most often encountered in everyday clinical practice. Using numerous tables and innovative features such as Tricks of the Trade, Evidence-Based Practice boxes, and Clinical Alerts, Peggy Jenkins carefully explains how to interpret:
For each type of rhythm, you'll find description, causes, assessments, interpretations, criteria, and care measures along with heart diagrams that correspond to the ECGs.
Unlike the authors of other medical memoirs, Cole trained to be a surgeon in the military and served as a physician member of a Marine Corps reconnaissance unit, United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), and on a Navy Reserve SEAL team. From treating war casualties in Afghanistan and Iraq to his experiences as a civilian trauma surgeon treating alcoholics, drug addicts, criminals, and the mentally deranged, TRAUMA is an intense look at one man's commitment to his country and to those most desperately in need of aid.
Based on a physiologic approach that facilitates in-depth understanding, the text includes clinical scenarios that may be seen in practice, and firmly links the information found in the EKG printout to the patientís symptoms. It clearly presents the gamut of requisite topics in EKG interpretationófrom basic to complexóincluding topics not customarily addressed in depth, such as supraventricular tachycardias and pacemaker EKGs. The bookís multifaceted approach to EKG interpretation is enhanced with new approaches and recommendations, charts, and tables. Review questions at the end of each chapter enable students to identify problem areas. This book helps NPs, PAs, and other health professionals master their EKG interpretation skills and apply them with confidence every day.Key Features:
