Overview

Nursing students need a resource that guides them through the essentials of cardiology and ECGs and highlights what they need to know. This guide offers a visual, interactive approach that clearly explains topics such as: waveform analysis; measurement of atrial and ventricular rates; identification of premature ventricular contractions, ventricular tachycardia, asystole, ventricular fibrillation, heart blocks, dysrhythmias, pericarditis, and myocardial infarction location; and special considerations such as pacemakers, drug abuse, surgical therapy, and cardiac trauma. The first section of the book presents content in an illustrated multi-modal approach that explains key concepts and reviews topics with a range of engaging learning activities. The last section contains 150 NCLEX® review questions with answers and rationales for both correct and incorrect answers.
