Description
This volume of the Nursing Know-How series offers how-to guidance on the latest techniques for ECG interpretation and treatment of arrhythmias.
Written in a heavily bulleted format, the book includes real-time rhythm strips for all arrhythmias, with characteristics listed and telltale abnormalities highlighted. Scores of practice strips with answers are included.

Know-How Nugget icons offer expert tips on technique, which leads to use, where to place leads, and how to differentiate look-alike ECGs. Case Clip icons present real-life clinical scenarios involving potentially lethal arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia—what the nurse noted and how the rapid response team intervened. Alert icons highlight warnings and clinical precautions, such as alerts to drug-induced arrhythmias.
