Features

Focused coverage and realistic hands-on practice help students master basic arrhythmias

  • Focused coverage helps students master the basic concepts needed to identify arrhythmias. The text covers all the basics of arrhythmia interpretation——including basic electrophysiology, waves and measurements, rhythm analysis, and the five major groups of arrhythmias— and includes appendices on Clinical Implications, Cardiac Anatomy and Physiology, 12-Lead Electrocardiography, Basic 12-Lead Interpretation, and Pathophysiology of Arrhythmias.
  • Difficult concepts are presented in a flexible, progressive approach to allow for self-paced or classroom learning. Carefully organised units of consistent length allow for self-paced, independent learning of basic principles, concepts, and techniques.
  • Over 680 Practice Strips that provide extensive, realistic hands-on practice. Practice sheets of EKG rhythm strips are included in most chapters to give students hands-on practice. Answers to the end-of-chapter Practice Strips appear on the same pages as the strips themselves for easy access and immediate concept reinforcement.
    • UPDATED: This edition includes even more 12-leads for practice.
    • UPDATED: Instead of simplified tracings, 12-leads are presented in a more real-world manner.
  • Requires no sophisticated equipment so students can learn anywhere, without access to expensive EKG equipment. Students need only a pencil and a set of EKG calipers to start learning.
  • UPDATED: Keep your course current with the most up-to-date information. Throughout the 8th Edition, existing content has been updated for currency and some new content has been added to clarify concepts.

Pedagogical tools help students study more efficiently and use the book as a practical reference

  • In-chapter questions help confirm understanding. Students can complete both fill-in-the blank sentences and direct questions to help them confirm that they understand each concept before moving on.
  • Key points and Self-tests in every chapter promote quick review and self-evaluation. Key Points quickly summarise the most important concepts and skills covered in each chapter. End-of-chapter Self-tests cover essential points discussed in that chapter Help students check their understanding and quickly return to material for reinforcement
  • Full-color Flash Cards help students review material. Tear-out Flash Cards help students efficiently review and memorise material.
  • Chapter Overviews structure learning. Easy-to-read introductions to each chapter aim student learning at the core electrocardiography principles and techniques.

Basic Arrhythmias helps you understand the common, uncomplicated rhythms that are a foundation for further learning and success in electrocardiography.
