Presenting clear and concise introductory material for entry-level college students, ECG: ESSENTIALS OF ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHY covers the fundamental knowledge needed for taking ECGs, including instruction on the anatomy of the heart, electrophysiology, and ECG basics. It is an excellent resource for a standalone ECG class, college technology programs, a review course, or as a supplemental text to strengthen foundational skills for students in advanced ECG courses. To prepare students for completing ECGs in the field, this text presents a combination of introductory cardiovascular anatomy, relationships of other body systems to heart health, essential legal and ethical considerations, patient assessment techniques, instructions on how to complete and document ECGs, and basic interpretation of the ECG tracing. Objectives students must master to qualify to sit for the National Healthcareer Association's (NHA) EKG Technician Certification exam are addressed throughout the text.
"I think that this book is spot on for teaching an entry level ECG technician. You are creating a text that will help [students] understand the basic concepts while ensuring that the student will become efficient in field."
— Nickolas Ray, Southern Union State Community College
