This workbook contains more than 500 actual ECG strips, enabling students to test their skills at ECG interpretation, and discover the areas in which they need improvement. Introductory chapters on the anatomy and physiology, electrophysiology, wave forms, intervals, segments and complexes, monitoring equipment, lead placement, and steps in analyzing a rhythm strip form a foundation for learning. Practice strips complete the answer key, so that students can gain confidence in arrythmias interpretation. A two-part post test allows students to self-test their arrhythmia interpretation skills. An electrocardiaogram conversion table is provided for more precise rate calculation.
