EKGs for the Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant
Demystifies EKG interpretation.
Delivering succinct, clear explanations to help students easily grasp key concepts, this book provides a comprehensive, multifaceted approach to EKG interpretation for NP and PA students, as well as practicing clinicians who need a quick refresher. The second edition retains the book's systematic, physiologic approach that trains readers to follow the same steps in evaluating each EKG. It negates the need for rote memorization by facilitating a genuine understanding of EKG interpretation. Using the patient's presenting symptoms as a starting point, abundant clinical scenarios demonstrate real-life applications for interpreting EKG readings. With scores of figures and tables, and more than 160 EKG tracings, this resource delivers exactly everything PAs and NPs need to provide expert, quality care to their patients.
