This Handbook contains in synopsis form most of the information included in the basic ACLS course, including all of the main algorithms. Also, it includes the BLS algorithm and short sections in the back that include PALS and Neonatal Resuscitation info. Of note, the algorithms included for the ACLS and BLS are the newly revised AHA versions (the ones that went into effect on July 1, 2006), so you don't have to worry about wasting your money purchasing a book with out-of-date algothims and information. (Like the current edition of the ACLS provider's manual that's still on sale through .) The spiral-bound format of this book isn't quite as white coat pocket-friendly as the cards that come with the ACLS provider manual but, as I mentioned there's more information in this than is put on the cards and, at least as of when I'm writing this, they don't have up to date cards for sale yet.
This is my second go to book. It's great while learning cardiology and trauma medicine. The heart itself can be a very complex and complicated organ and EKGs might feel intimidating at first but this book alongside classroom education, hands on education, pharmacology and your main trauma medicine book , are your survival guides. The layout is perfect, easy to find things, easy to add stick notes or your own handwritten notes. Cardiology changes with AHA every once in awhile but this book versus the most recent has no dramatic changes, so if I lost this book I'd feel comfortable buying the year of this book again. The pages don't bend or tear which is nice conclsidering the book is 5 years old and yes it took me 5 years to write a review but all the better because I can say it is durable and up to date with current standards.
I am taking my initial paramedic class and recently took my first ACLS class. I purchased the ACLS book and my instructor recommended this ECC flip guide. It follows the ACLS book to a tee and in my opinion, I get more use out of the flip guide then the book. GREAT TOOL!!!
This was a great reference book during my Family Practice Residency. It was organized well and so small that I could carry it in my pocket. I was able to look up what to do quickly and I was lucky to have it. Thank you! It was delivered on time and in perfect condition.
I bought this to update from the 2000 version. A handy reference and easy to bring along, with tons of useful information and flowcharts. Is also helpful when reviewing for ACLS re-certification.
great little reference for use during on-calls, even for Cardiology trainees, but guidelines are being updated again and AHA may come out with new version soon.Flow-charts formmanagment of arrythmias and CAd are very useful. Overall a good buy.
I found this book hard to follow and nothing is tabbed for easy access in an emergent situation which is what it is supposed to do. If you prepare for ACLS by reading the book that is given with the class you will find that is all you need. If you want a refresher for ekg rhythm strips or a tabbed book look for davis notes for ecg.
Very comprehensive .. very good review to keep in your lab coat to review in down times in a busy ER. Since this is rare to non-exitant in the ER, to get some down time, it's a very nice quick reference to keep those skills honed.
