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:Sinus rhythms Atrial rhythms Junctional rhythms Atrioventricular heart blocks Myocardial infarction Changes found in patients with pacemakers
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.
Dr. Philip Podrid, the primary author, is an academic cardiologist and Professor of Medicine and Pharmacology at Boston University School of Medicine and a Lecturer at Harvard Medical School. He has taught ECG interpretation for more than 35 years to medical students, house staff (interns and residents), cardiology fellows, physicians, nurses, and EMTs.
Volume 4, Arrhythmias--Part A: Core Cases presents 62 cases that are fundamental to the understanding and diagnosis of arrhythmias. Included are rhythm disorders involving the sinus node, those generated by the atrial myocardium, those involving the AV node or junction, and those that originate within the ventricular myocardium.
• An appealing, user-friendly format that will help with exam preparation
• Clearly defined learning objectives to guide readers efficiently through the intricacies of ECG interpretation
• Numerous practical examples of ECG strips to illustrate important concepts, including clean ECG strips to practice skills
• Multiple-choice questions to consolidate learning and emphasize pertinent facts
This second edition has been thoroughly revised from the original 12-lead ECG Interpretation: The Self-Assessment Approach, with fully updated text, additional electrocardiograms and new chapters covering a variety of arrhythmias and ion channelopathies. The book is an essential aid to structured learning for electrophysiologists cardiologists in training, Internists, emergency room physicians, , medical students, nurses and. cardiac technicians.
More than 100 years after its first use by Willem Einthoven, electrocardiography continues to be the first diagnostic tool applied in most cardiac patients. This text atlas provides a sound basis for the correct ECG interpretation essential for appropriate patient management.
If you're looking for a fun, fast review that boils EKGs down to the most essential, must-know points your search ends here! EKGs for Nursing Demystified is a thorough yet concise overview of this medical test, complete with time-proven techniques, facsimiles of EKG strips, and numerous clinical cases.

This fast and easy guide offers:Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter A foundation in EKG topics A final exam at the end of the book A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work
Simple enough for a student, but comprehensive enough for a professional, EKGs for Nursing Demystified is your shortcut to mastering this critical topic.
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:
