F.A. Davis Releases New Training Textbook Tackling ECG Basics

ECG Success illustrates the key features of all arrhythmias and presents multiple practice strips to allow the student to learn the subtle findings that help distinguish one from another. Organized by the seven categories of arrhythmias, ECG Success reviews the basics of ECGs (anatomy, physiology, electrophysiology, etc.), and provides a diverse group of strips for practice and testing pattern recognition. In addition, the book includes four practice tests, each with 75 randomized ECG strips, and two chapters with more than ten case studies with multiple-choice questions and more ECG strips.

ECG Success covers all the information needed — anatomy and physiology, practice, case scenarios, and relevant emergency care — to help the reader feel competent and in control, whether faced with a nonthreatening ECG or an emergency situation.
