EKG Plain and Simple : From Rhythm Strips to 12-Leads
For courses covering EKG.Using a conversational tone, this all-inclusive guide to electrocardiography discusses basic to advanced topics such as rhythm strip analysis, 12-lead EKG interpretation, recognition of a heart attack in progress, and the constantly evolving treatment of arrhythmia. Its comprehen- sive treatment and hundreds of sample strips emphasize not only the need for practice to perfect skills, but explanations to understand answers-and what makes each one of them correct.
