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 whether 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.

Part I 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 II provides answers to all the practice examples, including correct interpretation, treatment, and discussion.
