EKG interpretation is often a difficult subject for students to learn and understand. With this in mind, Brenda Beasley and Michael West have created Understanding 12-Lead EKGs, a straightforward approach to EKG interpretation that presents all the essential concepts students need to know to master the basics of this challenging field. This comprehensive, reader-friendly book is ideal for self-study or classroom use, making it the perfect resource for both students and practicing health care professionals. KEY TOPICS: Chapter topics include cardiovascular anatomy and physiology; basic electrophysiology; the electrical conduction system; the electrocardiogram; interpretation of an EKG strip; acute myocardial infarction; iscemia, injury and necrosis; interpretation of: inferior MIs, anterior MIs, septal MIs, lateral MIs, and posterior MIs; bundle branch blocks and axis deviations; therapeutic modalities; and cardiovascular pharmacology. For pre-hospital care and nursing providers, cardiac care monitor technicians, medical students, physicians, and ACLS candidates.
