Overview

Getting Acquainted With Wide Complex Tachycardias – A Workbook for the Electrocardiographically Confused! is for physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and paramedics who want to improve their skill specifically at diagnosing wide complex tachycardias. It is not a beginner's book, a "...Made Easy" book, an "All You Will Ever Need to Know..." book, or a " Be an Expert in 3 Days" book! It is a book for those with at least an intermediate skill level in ECG interpretation who want to advance their knowledge and skill in managing one of the most difficult diagnoses in medicine.
This workbook will train you to correctly identify the complex, confusing, and often indistinct QRS morphologies of a wide complex tachycardia. In addition, you will learn how to determine:

1. from which ventricle the ectopic focus is originating
2. where in the ventricle the ectopic focus is located (outflow tract or apex, septum or free wall)
3. whether the tachycardia is benign or life-threatening

...and all this in less than thirty (30) seconds! Probably much less than 30 seconds!

The main algorithms and methods for differentiating VTs from SVTs with aberrancy are discussed in detail with attention to the pros and cons of each. There are TWO chapters on the recognition of AV dissociation – the first is an introduction to the topic and the second takes you to a much more advanced level.. This workbook is loaded with TIPS, TRICKS, and many PEARLS to enhance your knowledge and skill. Tasks and exercises reinforce learning throughout the workbook.

Stop feeling uncomfortable or even intimidated by wide complex tachycardias! Take control of the situation with confidence and skill!
