Geared to LPNs/LVNs, this quick-reference pocket guide supplies an easy-to-understand information to ECG interpretation and contours over 200 obviously defined ECG rhythm strips. Following a refresher on related cardiac anatomy, body structure, and electrophysiology, the guide gifts the 8-step approach for studying any rhythm strip. Subsequent chapters give an explanation for quite a lot of cardiac price and rhythm abnormalities, together with sinus node arrhythmias, atrial arrhythmias, junctional arrhythmias, ventricular arrhythmias, and atrioventricular blocks. Arrhythmias are lined in a constant format-causes, importance, ECG traits, indicators and signs, and interventions. Coverage additionally comprises ECG traits of problems, medication, pacemakers, and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators and a bankruptcy on elementary 12-lead electrocardiography.
