I was very irritated by the inability to see an EKG preview when evaluating an EKG book. Often that sort of blocked preview hides a graphically inferior book. Having taken a possibility and purchased the book, I can now say that the Rhythm strips are of amazing quality, present up well in the iPad using Kindle program, and the book navigates relatively well. Info is well ortcomings: too few actual 12 leads. Most are in the formate of a single beat only. Part of what a beginner needs to see a lot is complete EKGs in their usual clinical format to really obtain comfortable with reading quickly.Overall a amazing book. I will be using this resource to teach the residents (IM, FP and transitional) that rotate with us.If this book does not look like your particular cup of tea, a amazing second choice is the ridiculously titled but readable "The Only EKG Book You'll Ever Need." I used that myself during residency some time ago and still lend mine out to residents on the service. It can quickly bring a resident with EKG deficiency up to e quizzes in this (the above) book and overall volume of info look better for purpose of more in depth teaching.
This is a decent ECG instruction book. The one complaint I have is that the rates in the respond key do not always match up with the rate-finding way that the book says you should use for a particular type of rhythm. Other than that, a clear and concise reference/workbook.
You can buy a million books but if you wish one that will try your knowledge and really give you samples to interpret there is no greater book than this one .... hands down the best investment I created .... required to learn to interpret ekgs consistently for work ( I'm a telemetry monitor) and this book was awesome to utilize for my end goal
I LOVE this book, I always obtain the recent edition. It has all the information you'll ever need and the hundreds of rhythms WITH THE ANSWERS are fantastic! You have so a lot of to practice on and then check your interpretation. I highly recommend this book, especially for newbies to the Tele floor...practice, practice, practice...and this book is amazing practice!
The book came on time. The packaging was cushioned and secure with no hurt to the book. So far, I love this book. The book has a well summarized guide about each rhythm stating why one rate is various than another. There is a amazing number of practice strips that you can obtain a amazing idea at how to identify each rhythm. I love having the respond key in the back to be able to check my work. What is amazing about this book is that it has flash cards of the various rhythm already inside the book. I previously created my own but if I'd known that this came with the book I would not have. Overall, amazing book and will teach you ECGs.
If you are starting to understand ECG strips and need practice then this is the book for you. It has literally hundreds of practice try strips and the practice was amazing for my critical care class. I was very satisfied with the method this book was set up and the amount of practice I got from it.
I work at a Level 1 Trauma Center, and this is THE book used for the 5 day arrhythmia class for nurses. And I can totally see why they chose it. The descriptions are great, and there are a gazillion rhythm strips to practice with answers in the back of the book. This is one of those things that you lose quick if you don't use is often. So it takes a lot of ongoing practice to really burn it into your head. The large number of practice strips makes this book a winner. I search myself disagreeing with some of the interval measurements here and there, but you'll search that in any book. And that's kind of okay, because the overall net effect is that I'm really becoming amazing at the fundamentals. Today I was taking the post try in the back of the book and found myself positive that I was looking at a 3rd degree heart block, yet the author said it was Mobitz II. The thing that makes me okay with some of these small squabbles I have with the author is that the clinical implications of my disagreements are beautiful insignificant. With the heart block example, I'm quite aware that sometimes Mobitz II and complete heart block can be hard to distinguish in some cases, and it may be left up to Cardiology to sort it out. My job is to realize that I have an underperfused patient with a heart block that requires pacing, and this book has been fundamental in teaching me that. Overall I'm extremely happy and will be purchasing another copy just to re-practice the rhythm strips again (which I've written all over with ink!)
Amazing book.I a Certified Cardiographic technician and studying to become registered Carfiophysialgy. So I read a lot of Cardiac books. This book is a amazing resource.A lot of strips and simple/deep explaination that helps you to easly understand and stay in your memory longer. I use this book every day at work.
Everyone loves Dubin. Amazing book, no doubt and as a PA student I found it very useful in helping me understand the basics of ECG Interpretation. However, every single text I search falls short of providing adequate practice with succinct and precise explanations of each rhythm strip and variations of each. Learning how things look in a excellent globe is amazing to know, but seeing how it presents in multiple various ways is what you're going to need to learn to interpret in true life. As a PA student, I have finally found the book that place me at ease and makes me feel confident about reading ECG Rhythm during clinicals. I thought a book like this did not exist. Well it does. I suggest you obtain this book and a copy of Dubin, go over this one in more depth for rhythm and Dubin for axis, etc and you will be golden. This book is #1 gold to me and I know for a fact it would be #1 for a lot of students like myself.
The section of the book I required have been ripped out, (ex. pp. 324-336); even though the rest of the book seems to be in ok condition, this was the subject I required to review, so the book is not as ere is a writing in the book, and that is fine for the "good condition."
This book has come in very handy for me as I am working as a Telemetry Technician. There have been a lot of times I have gone to the book to verify if what I thought I was seeing was the arrhythmia I was thinkng of or if there were any other arrhythmias that were better suited. It is an amazing reference & teaching book.
Beautiful sure I did every single rhythm strip in this book. By the end of cardiology it was taking me less than 10 seconds to ID a strip and I was able to explain it to others. This is probably better for a paramedic and what I imagine is a cardiologist's 101 class
Amazing for drilling with so a lot of practice rhythm strips. It was excellent for learning rhythms and the charts at the end of the chapters were really helpful as a reference. Only problem was there were strips labeled as paroxysmal atrial tachycardia(PAT) where you couldn't see the beginning or the end of the tachycardia so we don't actually know it is PAT. If you can take those small inconsistencies in stride (as well as a few other differences compared to other course material, but that could have been professor preference), it is perfect practice for learning rhythms and measuring with calipers!
If you are going to PA school or MD/DO school, GET THIS! The practice is incredibly helpful, the flashcards are amazing, and so is the pocket card to calculate rate. We have a try on them next week and I think this is even better than our text.
I first purchased this book several years ago as a tool to use in an ECG interpretation course. The info is presented in a clear, easy-to-understand format. The illustrations are excellent. There is a self-test at the end of the book that is helpful for educators.
I do not think this book even came! I had ordered a couple other books on ECG interpretation and this certainly didn't come. I have another one, in a gray color that did arrive. That one is okay. Is it the same author? Who knows? Anyway, the book that came was NOT this book.
This book is PERFECT for EKG review and fast reference. Ironically, all of the not good reviews on this book are EXACTLY why I LOVE it! It includes all the rhythms with their primary descriptions and NO ADDED unnecessary "filler" like other books that contain causes, treatments and diagnoseses of said s excellent for the cardiac monitor tech both fresh and those reviewing for yearly retest info as well as for telemetry, cardiac care, ED nurses and any student studying EKG recognition.
Amazing Illustrations and simple to follow for 3 and 5 lead EKGs. It has some on 12 leads but in my opinion once someone is trying to tackle 12 lead printouts would need a move advance book for deeper r those that are working only with 3 and 5 leads readouts this is excellent as well as primary understanding of all lead placements (configurations) including 12 lead
Personally, I thought this was quite boring, however, I ordered it for my daughter who happened to be studying to be a ECG tech, and she was thrilled with it. She immediately looked at it, and started discussing what each example meant.....I went back to reading my book!
I work in the field of cardiology and I found this book to be a amazing tool to hold me sharp on my interpretations. It comes in very handy when identifying arrythmias. Cash well spent for furthering my education and understanding the heart. I found the price was excellent. Thanks amazon
Perfect EKG Interpretation Manual for my Nursing Student Granddaughter. As an RN, I was able to explain a lot of of the different subjects with a lot of clear examples of the irregular heart beats or other cardiac issues. It is simple to read and simple to understand with a lot of examples of EKG Strips that create sense. It is a amazing resource that she will be able to review for any questionable rhythms.
