Praise for the Second Edition:
""This is an excellent workbook for students or healthcare
professionals who are just beginning to interpret 12-lead EKGs. The
book covers what is expected, but the manner in which it presents
the material brings much clarity to the topic."" --Doody's Medical
This handy, step-by-step guide for medical and nursing students
and novice practitioners delivers ample information for confidently
interpreting 12-lead EKGS. It goes beyond the many EKG books that
rely on rote memorization by actively engaging students in the
learning process. The guide fosters the understanding needed for
students to comprehend, analyze, and interpret the variety of
rhythm strips involved with 12-lead EKGs, and provides a solid
grounding in the clinical relevance of dysrhythmias. This third
edition features an expanded section on arrhythmias with double the
amount of EKGs for practice, a revised worksheet design with larger
12-lead EKG printouts for readability, more practice worksheets and
case studies, and additional 12-Lead EKGs in a digital folder for
Written clearly while avoiding a simplistic approach, the guide
features a step-by-step progression that enables self-paced study.
It presents basic principles of anatomy and physiology, including a
review of the heart's electrical system, followed by foundational
EKG concepts. The segment featuring the 12-Lead EKG rhythm strip is
enlarged to ensure students can view the appropriate lead while
seeing the entire strip. The guide discusses clinical reasoning for
each type of rhythm and includes actual EKGs at the end of each
chapter to test comprehension. Worksheets in each chapter include
guidelines for interpreting actual EKG printouts and require
students to practice measurement, evaluation, and analysis of
rhythms and develop improved diagnostic reasoning skills. Case
examples, Critical Concept Boxes, and tables highlight important
points within the text.
