ECGs Made Easy 6th Edition PDF Free Download
Many ye.ars ago, as a green but enthusiastic nurse preparing to shift from medical- surgical nursing to critical care, I signed up for a course in basic ECG recognition. It was an intimidating experience. My i.nst:ructor was extremely knowledgeable and kind. and I studied diligently throughout the course, yet I struggled to crack the code of heart rhythm interpretation. To make matters worse, I couldn’t find any resources in which these complex concepts were presented in a practical, useful way. Although I passed the course. I decided to repeat it a few months later because I simply coulchlt recall and apply the infonnation I needed to help my patients. After successfully completing the second course, I promised myself that I would someday present these concepts in a simpler way. ‘Ihat promise became my life’s work. Ever since then, I have been looking for better ways in which to present the skill of basic ECG recognition to those who will apply that knowledge every working day: • Paramedics • Nursing and medical students • ECG monitor technicians • Nurses and other allied health personnel world.ng in emergency departments, critical care units, postanesthesia care units, operating rooms, and telemetry units ‘!his book can be used alone or as part of a formal course of instruction in basic dysrhythmia recognition. 1he book’• content focuses on the essentials of ECG interpretation. Each ECG rhythm is described and accompanied by a sample rhythm strip. 1hen the discussion turns to possible signs and symptoms related to each rhythm and. where appropriate, current recommended treatment. At the end of each chapter, additional rhythm strips and their description.s are provided for practice. (All rhythm strips shown in this text were recorded in lead n unless otherwise noted.) 1he Stop 8c Review exerci!es at the end of each chapter are self-usessment activities that allow you to check your learning.
