Features

For all courses in basic or introductory cardiography.

 

Basic Arrhythmias, Seventh Edition gives beginning students a strong basic understanding of the common, uncomplicated rhythms that are a foundation for further learning and success in electrocardiography. The first eight chapters, which can be used as self-instruction, cover basic electrophysiology, waves and measurements, rhythm analysis, and the five major groups of arrhythmias. Basic Arrthymias then introduces cardiac anatomy, clinical manifestations, 12-lead electrocardiography, and cardiac pacemakers.

Hallmark Features

 

Focused coverage of all basic topics–including basic electrophysiology, waves and measurements, rhythm analysis, and the five major groups of arrhythmias

  • Uses a considerate, guiding voice to help students master the basic concepts needed to identify arrhythmias   

Carefully organized self-instructional units of consistent length–promote self-paced, independent learning of basic principles, concepts, and techniques

  • Allow students to pace themselves and learn step-by-step in an organized, efficient manner 

Ongoing, in-chapter questions designed to confirm understanding–including both fill-in-the blank sentences and direct questions

  • Help students confirm that they understand each concept before moving on 

Key Points–quickly summarize the most important concepts and skills covered in each chapter

  • Help students study more efficiently and use the book as a practical reference 

Self-tests–at the end of every chapter; cover essential points discussed in that chapter

  • Help students check their understanding and quickly return to material for reinforcement 

Practice Strips–provide practice EKG rhythm strips in most chapters

  • Give students extensive, realistic hands-on practice, the single most important element in developing arrhythmia interpretation sills 

Flash Cards–perforated at the back of the book

  • Help students more efficiently memorize the material that must be committed to memory

Requires no sophisticated equipment–students need only a pencil and a set of EKG calipers

  • Allows students to learn anywhere, without access to expensive EKG equipment
