This ECG workbook gives nurses and nursing students the opportunity to practice and perfect their rhythm interpretation skills on more than 600 realistic ECG strips
Introductory text offers a refresher on cardiac anatomy and physiology and ECG basics—electrophysiology, waveforms, lead placement, and steps in interpretation. Subsequent chapters provide in-depth coverage of each type of arrhythmia, pacemakers, and 12-lead ECGs, with scores of practice strips in each chapter. A comprehensive post-test gauges the ability to interpret ECGs and distinguish among arrhythmia types.
