Designed for readers who learn new skills best by doing, this case-based approach is the closest thing to treating real-life patients. Rather than straight memorization, this book bridges the gap between fact and application with an emphasis on developing the critical thinking skills that are essential to reading and interpreting ECGs in practice. In addition to all the basics of ECG interpretation, A Case-based Approach to ECG Interpretation features chapter self-tests with a variety of question formats, 70 in-depth case scenarios, and 290 practice rhythm strips from actual patient encounters!
