This pocket-sized book offers basic information about dysrhythmia recognition. Fast Facts About EKGs for Nurses begins with a basic review of cardiac anatomy and conduction pathways, followed by a step-by-step process for rhythm strip analysis. Common dysrhythmias are presented and identified by their characteristics as well as causes and clinical implications. A section in the book discusses paced rhythms. Practice rhythm strips and case studies for individual practice are available in a limited quantity. This book would be a good adjunct to a more formalized course or review for an experienced practitioner.
