Description

ISBN: 9780073519760

This is a portable, easy-to-view, quick reference pocket guide. Puts key points about how to recognize various dysrhythmias and cardiac conditions right at hand in the field, in a clinical setting, or around the station dinner table after a call. Short intro about the location of the heart, lead placement, and the nine-step process for interpreting the various wave forms and characteristics. Briefly describes the normal and abnormal features found on ECG tracings, demonstrates how to calculate heart rate, identify irregularities, and identify and measure the various waveforms, intervals and segments. Chapters then break out where the dysrhythmias originate (i.e., sinus, atrial, junctional, ventricular, AV heart block), the key characteristics of various dysrhythmias, and conditions that can be detected through the use of the electrocardiogram. Outstanding design and graphics in this pocket guide make it stand way ahead of many that we sell.
