Description

This outstanding text and workbook is the leading reference for students, practicing nurses, paramedics, and other health professionals learning ECG interpretation. Thoroughly updated with new figures and easy-to-follow text,  ECG Workout is an excellent guide to rhythm analysis that builds on knowledge in a step-by-step fashion to broaden the understanding of essential ECG concepts and build the skills to confidently and accurately interpret ECG waveforms. 

Get the knowledge you need to meet the challenges of ECG interpretation with:

·       Over 600 actual-sized practice rhythm strips – more than any other guide on the market!
·         Clear, thorough overviews of anatomy, physiology, and electrophysiology
·         Identification of principal waveform components and scores of illustrations for essential ECG concepts
·         Easy, five-step method for analyzing any rhythm strip
·         Chapters covering the most common arrhythmias, - sinus arrhythmias, atrial arrhythmias, junctional arrhythmias and AV blocks, ventricular arrhythmias 
        and bundle-branch blocks, pacemakers – all with typical waveforms
·         Hardwire and telemetry monitoring equipment and troubleshooting tips
·         New! Skillbuilder section for extra practice differentiating among mixed strips
·         New! More glossary terms and 48 pull-out flashcards for self-testing

Plus …
·         Comprehensive post-test to evaluate what you’ve learned
·         Handy pocket ECG conversion card for more precise heart rate calculation
·         Online PowerPoint® chapter reviews and flash cards (see inside cover for details)

  • All chapters thoroughly revised and updated
  • Step-by-step guide to rhythm strip analysis
  • NEW: Skill-building approach to learning, with new "Skill builder" practice rhythm strips in select chapters
    —Chapter 7 (Atrial Arrhythmias) includes 25 mixed practice strips—sinus and atrial strips—helping students distinguish between the two types of rhythms
    —Chapter 8 (Junctional Arrhythmias and AV Blocks) includes a mixture of additional practice strips—atrial, junctional, and heart block—building on information from the preceding chapter
    —Chapter 9 (Ventricular Arrhythmias and Bundle Branch Blocks) goes one step further to include a mix of yet more practice strips—sinus, atrial, junctional, heart block, and ventricular—encouraging students to apply recently learned concepts and skills
  • NEW: Chapter 10 (Pacemakers) extensively revised to include permanent pacemaker strips and temporary venous strips
  • Bonus 48 perforated flash cards—with one side illustrating an ECG strip, the reverse side identifing the waveform and detailing its defining ECG characteristics (rhythm interpretation, rate, P waves, PR interval, and QRS complex)
  • Latest ACLS guidelines provided
  • End-of-chapter practice rhythm strips with corresponding answer keys at the back of the book
  • Posttest featuring over 100 waveform rhythm strips
  • Updated Glossary with terms highlighted at first mention in text
  • Simple, easy-to-follow text with hundreds of figures, including anatomical drawings, sample waveform configurations, and real-sized ECG strips
