In the fast-paced world of healthcare, time is of the essence, and a concise and easy-to-use quick reference on EKG interpretation is a necessity. EKG in a Heartbeat is fast, accurate and to the point, and offers busy professionals quick access to important facts. Within this pocket guide are algorithms for rhythm interpretation, axis, hypertrophy, bundle branch blocks and hemiblocks, and myocardial infarct localization, as well as examples of the various rhythms and types of MIs. There is also a 12-lead interpretation checklist. For clinical specialists in cardiac or cardiovascular nursing; cardiac rehab nurses.
