DESCRIPTION

ECG Interpretation Made Incredibly Easy makes learning to read and interpret rhythm strips simple. 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. 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.
