This workbook presents a multitude of practice examples to help critical care students and practitioners grasp and excel at key concepts of 12-Lead EKG and dysrhythmia interpretation. Designed to supplement any established dysrhythmia textbook, this straightforward resource is ideal for new graduates and nurses who are considering a switch to critical or acute care. This book distills complexities of the 12-Lead to determine if a patient is safe or at risk.

Fast Facts Workbook for Cardiac Dysrhythmias and 12-Lead EKGs delivers instruction on all foundational aspects of EKG interpretation. It contains numerous practice examples with instant feedback to provide nursing students with much-needed reinforcement of this often-challenging content. Feedback includes a detailed discussion of the “why” behind the diagnosis and treatment often missed by students and beginning clinicians.

This book is divided into three parts. Part I begins with an Introduction and General Principles. Part II progresses into Atrial Rhythms, Junctional Rhythms, AV Blocks, Ventricular Rhythms, Pacemakers, and 12 Lead EKG, including valuable practice exercises with abundant rhythm strips in each chapter. Part III provides answers to all the practice examples that include Correct Interpretation, Treatment and Discussion.
