ECG Interpretation Made Incredibly Easy! Fifth Edition makes learning to read and interpret rhythm strips simple. This practical reference uses a unique, conversational writing style that breaks down complex concepts and information to make ECG interpretation easier to understand. Fully updated and now in full color, the book reviews fundamental cardiac anatomy and physiology, explains how to obtain and interpret a rhythm strip, and teaches the reader how to recognize and treat sinus, atrial, and ventricular arrhythmias as well as heart blocks. In addition, the book explains how to obtain and interpret 12-lead ECGs. Special elements found throughout the reference make it easy to remember key points. Each chapter features: A summary of key points; clear, simple explanations of problems; definitions of key terms; illustrations that clearly explain key concepts; bullets, ballot boxes, and checklists that make it easy to spot important points at a glance; sidebars that highlights key facts about ECG interpretation; and quick quizzes to test knowledge.
