This interactive DVD self-study guide is designed to help medical students, physician assistant students, and nurses in acute and clinical care settings master the 12-Lead EKG. It features a unique step-by-step method reinforced by 100+ practice EKGs that is based on 20 years of successful teaching. This method promotes the development of sound clinical and diagnostic reasoning skills by fostering in-depth understanding rather than mere rote pattern memorization.

Key Features:

  • Easy-to-navigate DVD consists of an EKG rhythm strip on the screen for each of the 50+ cases with text callouts and audio, followed by questions requiring interpretation and analysis
  • Progresses from simple to complex readings to foster EKG-reading confidence
  • Supports development of clinical reasoning skills through clinical problem solving and diagnostic theories for each type of rhythm
  • Simulates real-world EKG interpretations and highlights important EKG features
  • Provides a self-assessment quiz with answers for immediate reinforcement
