I'm a NICU RN- I asked a friend who works on a telemetry floor for a good resource to refer to when brushing up on ECG skills. When I brought this into the unit, all of my docs stated that this was the book they used in med. school. It's a really good reference.

If you have to interpet EKG for school, work, or even if you know someone whose heart was tested using an EKG...Buy this book. If you are in a ALLIED HEATLH (RESPIRATORY) program then you should BUY THIS BOOK. i am a visual learner and this book helped a lot.

I recommend this book to all of my students, both new and old. It is a great start for the beginner and it still the gold standard for the "older" folks to review.

This is the best book to buy if you need to learn about EKGs. It goes over all the basics and slowly builds on top of them giving you a great foundation to work on. This book has been around for a long time and there is a reason it's the most widely used in paramedic and med schools for learning the basics of EKGS.

I haven't been much of a person to finish a textbook so having finished 'most' of this, I have to say that this is my style of learning. As with most learning media, it really depends on what type of learning you like. I like the style this book uses as it engages me with the fill in the blank type and quick summaries when I need it, yet, with enough substance to understand the concept behind EKG's. Granted the first chapter on the basics are for those being introduced to EKG's however, the later parts are meant for those moving on to internships. Heck, I know some residents that still use this book and I have to say that this book teaches EKG's better than some Fellows in Cardiology. So, with that, if you like the style, it's an excellent book. If you don't, well, you'll prolly want to find a different book.

This book is really easy to follow considering the topic and material. Much better than I expected. The author adds humor at times which is refreshing. I'm not a medical professional but work in the insurance industry and this book will be a valuable tool to help me with my work!

I'm not in a medical profession, but I bought this book to learn more about my wife's Afib. The interactive format made learning easy and I was able to grasp most of the many concepts. Obviously I would have a better understand of all of the concepts if I had someone to answer my question. It is obvious why it is a classic.

I have worked in the medical field in a variety of capacities for close to 30 years. I personally have purchased 6 different rhythm interpretation books to aid in teaching rhythm interpretation. This one is by far the best book. Unfortunately, it reads like stereo instructions. I know another reviewer said that it is disorganized. This isn't true. As a matter of fact, it's probably laid out better than any other interpretation book on the market. The problem is it is geared more towards physicians and people who have more than a little medical background. Dr. Dubin does explain some things very basically, but most are not. If you have been in the medical field for more than a couple years and have more that a basic understanding of things, this is a great book. But, if you are just starting out in the medical field, get a different book or better yet, go to a class first.

If you are a medical student, you NEED this book. It teaches you everything you need to know about reading EKGs. It is so easy to read, and has lots of pictures for explaination. I didnt even go to lecture and totally aced the EKG part of my cardio exam! This book is fantastic, especially if your cardio teacher is mediocre. There are summary pages in the back you can tear out and take on rotations or wherever with you to help if you cant bring this book with you, which is small in the first place and easy to take anywhere. I highly recommend it

this book was very helpful and easy to understand for those just learning about ekg's and a good quick reference for those more familiar with the topic.
