Description

Geared to LPNs/LVNs, this quick-reference pocket book provides an easy-to-understand guide to ECG interpretation and features over 200 clearly explained ECG rhythm strips.

Following a refresher on relevant cardiac anatomy, physiology, and electrophysiology, the book presents the 8-step method for reading any rhythm strip. Subsequent chapters explain various cardiac rate and rhythm abnormalities, including sinus node arrhythmias, atrial arrhythmias, junctional arrhythmias, ventricular arrhythmias, and atrioventricular blocks.

Arrhythmias are covered in a consistent format—causes, significance, ECG characteristics, signs and symptoms, and interventions. Coverage also includes ECG characteristics of disorders, drugs, pacemakers, and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators and a chapter on basic 12-lead electrocardiography.
