Overview

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 posttest gauges the ability to interpret ECGs and distinguish among arrhythmia types. The book comes with a laminated ruler and rate calculator that doubles as a bookmark.

    Within the first chapter I found myself disappointed. When it came to the workbook portion I was shocked at the lack of either editing or knowledge. Simple concepts such as sinus tachycardia should not be mistaken as sinus brady. Do not buy this book, especially if your intent is to learn.
