The ECG is one of the most valuable diagnostic tools in modern medicine. Recording and interpreting the ECG is a complex process and misinterpretation of results can have serious repercussions on the patient's diagnosis and care, yet, until now, there has been no practical, instructive ECG book for nurses. From the principles of ECG monitoring and interpretation through to the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias and guidance on record keeping, this book contains everything nurses need to know about ECGs. Designed to be a handy reference book, it is packed full of real ECGs and case studies with brief discussions on possible effects on the patient, treatment and the nurses role.


I thoroughly recommend this text to all who work within an acute care area, or indeed any nurse with an interest in developing their ECG interpretation skills. British Journal of Resuscitation 'Easy to read, succinct review of the cardiac conduction system...(a) useful tool for any health professional new to a monitored environment, and would provide the essential baseline knowledge required for such staff.'
