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. This new Seventh Edition program features mybradykit, an online site providing extensive study resources, learning tools, and interactive exercises. An access code  to mybradykit is provided in the front of the text.

 

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

This classic, best-selling book has been completely updated and revised to reflect the latest knowledge in the field!  Basic Arrhythmias, Sevent Edition covers all the basics of arrhythmia interpretation and includes appendices on Clinical Implications, Cardiac Anatomy and Physiology, 12 Lead Electrocardiography, Basic 12 Lead Interpretation, and Pathophysiology of Arrhythmias. The author takes great care in presenting a difficult topic in an easy manner with a building block approach.  Some features to this updated edition include:

  • Over 600 practice strips included in the book.
  • Covers Clinical Implications, Cardiac Anatomy & Physiology, 12 Lead  Electrocardiography, Basic 12 Lead Interpretation, and Pacemakers, now includes a new section on Pathophysiology of Arrhythmias.
  • Full color texts, along with full color, tear-out flash cards for learning practice.
  • Flexible, self-instructional format allows for self-paced or classroom learning.
  • Key points and self-tests in every chapter for quick review and self-evaluation.
  • “Final Challenge” self-test at the end of book helps students evaluate their comprehension of material.
  • Clearly written, well-organized, and easy to understand.

This is a perfect resource for any practicing health care professionals who need to learn or review basic EKG or arrhythmia concepts.

 

This new Seventh Edition program features mybradykit, an online site providing extensive study resources, learning tools, and interactive exercises. An access code  to mybradykit is provided in the front of the text.
