Geared to LPNs/LVNs, this quick-reference pocket book provides an easy-to-understand guide to ECG interpretation and features over 200 clearly explained ECG rhythm strips. Following a refresher on relevant cardiac anatomy, physiology, and electrophysiology, the book presents the 8-step method for reading any rhythm strip. Subsequent chapters explain various cardiac rate and rhythm abnormalities, including sinus node arrhythmias, atrial arrhythmias, junctional arrhythmias, ventricular arrhythmias, and atrioventricular blocks. Arrhythmias are covered in a consistent format—causes, significance, ECG characteristics, signs and symptoms, and interventions. Coverage also includes ECG characteristics of disorders, drugs, pacemakers, and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators and a chapter on basic 12-lead electrocardiography.

Over the last decade, there has been a tremendous improvement in our understanding of basic cardiac electrophysiology. Most introductory ECG books teach via pattern recognition and do not incorporate new pathophysiologic information. There is a great need for a simple book that teaches electrocardiography from a pathophysiologic basis. The proposed paperback book will be small format, concise, and 200-pages in length. It can be utilized as a reference - chapter by chapter or read throughout for an overview. Each chapter will feature ten questions that will provide a chapter review. Ten case studies will be highlighted at the end of the book that will integrate the multiple principles of electrocardiography.

Titles in the Pocket Tutor series give practical guidance on subjects that medical students and foundation doctors need help with “on the go”, at a highly affordable price that puts them within reach of those rotating through modular courses or working on attachment. Topics reflect information needs stemming from today’s integrated undergraduate & foundation courses: Common investigations (ECG, Chest X-Ray, etc) Clinical skills (procedures, patient examination, etc) Professional development (ethics, statistics, etc) Clinical specialties that students perceive as too small to merit a textbook (psychiatry, renal medicine) Highly structured, bite-size content helps novices combat the “fear factor” associated with day to day clinical training, and provides “just enough” for a new rotation. Key Points Highly affordable price and convenient pocket size format – fits in back pocket! Logical, sequential content: relevant basic science, then a guide to understanding a normal ECG and the building blocks of an abnormal ECG, before describing clinical disorders Clinical disorders illustrated by a full page 12 lead ECG with brief accompanying text on facing page that clearly identifies the defining feature of the ECG (in other words, what is it that makes this atrial fibrillation?)
