Features

Appropriate for Paramedic courses and courses in EKG Interpretation

 

The value of over 30 years of combined EMS educational experience enables Brenda M. Beasley and Michael West to bring a unique and insightful approach to the topic of 12-lead EKGs and their interpretation. The authors have presented a complex yet vitally important subject in a comprehensive, straightforward, and easy-to-understand format.

 

UNDERSTANDING 12-LEAD EKGS, 3/e serves a wide audience of health-care providers, including prehospital providers, nurses, physician assistants, respiratory therapists, and anyone requiring a thorough understanding of electrocardiography. I believe that this book fills a void in the subject matter of EKG interpretation. It demonstrates the ability to educate medical personnel who are new to the subject matter while providing a review to those who are more experienced.

 

Using a reader-friendly writing style, the authors create a text that begins with the basics of EKG interpretation and then introduces a building-block approach to a more detailed discussion of this topic. Many illustrations, tables, and graphs are used to help highlight the important issues of each topic. Also, the reader will find the review questions at the end of each chapter useful in helping to solidify knowledge of salient issues.
