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.
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:
Presents the first comprehensive guide to EKG interpretationBased on a physiological approach to promote in-depth understandingConnects the patientís presenting symptoms to EKG interpretationUses charts, graphs, and printouts to support class discussionIncludes end-of-chapter review questions
