Guide to ECG Analysis
This entry level electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation text provides the basic skills required for competency in single-lead ECG interpretations. It presents a logical progression through the conduction system to identify dysrhythmias, describes their causes, and discusses the common symptoms associated with them. Also covers concepts such as bundle branch blocks and pacemaker rhythms. Practice strips and answer key provided.
