ECGs for Nurses (1405151013) cover image
The first ECG book to be aimed specifically at nurses. This practical, handy-sized guide will be useful for nurses working in all acute areas, as well as general nurses and students learning about ECGs for the first time. Real ECGs are used throughout to supplement the text. Bullet points, diagrams and self-assessment tools are features of every chapter. Accompanying every ECG trace will be a brief discussion detailing possible effects on the patient, the nurse's role and also treatment (if any) of the arrhythmia.
