Unlike books that encourage rote memorization, this conversationally-written text puts the student at the patient’s bedside, focusing not just on identifying rhythms or EKGs, but also on “Now what do I do for the patient?” Assuming no prior knowledge, EKG PLAIN AND SIMPLE, 3/e covers EKG from basic to advanced concepts. Part I progresses seamlessly from basic cardiac A&P through waves and complexes, lead morphology, and rhythms. Part II covers 12-lead interpretation, axis, hypertrophy, myocardial infarction, and more. The text presents many clinical scenarios, anecdotes, and critical thinking exercises, plus hundreds of practice rhythm strips and 12-lead EKGs. This edition adds new scenarios, chapter notes, and tables; more medication information; and new coverage ranging from MI symptoms to hemiblocks.

User’s Review:

U got this book to help my understand and learn about the electrical system of the heart for an Advanced EMT course. This book is great! its so easy to read and so simple to understand it is almost impossible not to learn from this book. It has lot of very helpful illustrations, very detailed, everything is broken down, and the quizzes are more helpful with learning then any I had in class. I whish my Advanced EMT book was made by these people.

As hospital based nursing education and clinical support department, my colleagues and I were frustrated with the most commonly used books for basic dysrhythmia. I acquired several of the most popular and we still did not find one we liked better than the one we were using (Huff) but we were not happy with Huff. As soon as I got this one, I shared it with my colleagues and it got a huge thumbs up from everyone. We use it as the text for our basic dysrhythmia course and I also use it to teach 12-lead ECG interpretation. I have to say that most of the 12-lead interpretation books I have looked at are woefully inadequate and assume the learner is a physician or medical student and already knows basic 12-lead. This one was refreshing because it lays down a good foundation for both 12 lead basics and the finer points of reading a 12 lead such as the differences in ST segment between things such as STEMI, BER, myocarditis, and other causes of ST changes. What is really terrific is the “12 lead ECG in a nutshell” cheat sheet. It lists all the basics you need to review an ECG in an algorithm format so that even someone that infrequently reads ECGs has a handy, meaningful reference. I might start handing it out to some of the docs!
