Format: Paperback
I was an basic and intermediate EMT for years. Intimidated by learning how to interpret and analyze EKG's, it was, by far, one of the most frustrating topic for me in paramedic class. My instructor recommended the "Basic Arrhythmias" book by Gail Walraven and in no time at all interpreting and analyzing EKG's became easy and soon after I was doing it like a second nature.
Now, as an EMT instructor, I recommend "Basic Arrhythmias" to my students and I am confident that they will find peace of mind in learning EKG's, just as I did.
Thank you Gail Walraven.

I teach a Basic EKG Course in staff development and I highly recommend this book for all levels of health care providers from unit coordinators to nurse managers. The arrythmia practice strips are excellent and having the correct answers in the back of the book allows the adult learner to verify their interpertations or seek further learning in an area. The explaination of a difficult subject is made easy. I have used this book for several years and look forward to the new editions to see what else Gail Walraven has included.

I learned disrhythmia interpretation in a weekend with the help of this book, and still pull the book off the shelf ten years later to brush up on my skills. I recommend this book for anyone needing to learn and understand how to read a cardiac monitor.

I have to say that this is the best college text book I have ever used. Clear, concise explanations of semi-complicated topics. I could not ask any more out of a book, except maybe lowering the price.

This is a great book. I had no problem understanding arrhythmias after I read it cover to cover. I ace'd all my test.

Every sentence has a blank which makes it really annoying to read. The words for the blanks are off to the side which makes the whole concept idiotic. The first thing I did was go through and fill in all the blanks so I could read it. Once you start reading it becomes apparent that the authors copied all the facts they could find about the current subject and put them in "bulleted" numbered format. There are no paragraphs, the facts are repetitive, it is obvious that the "facts" were taken from different places.
The good news(?) is that if you don't have any medical experience or know medical terminology the words and definitions are dumbed down so that anyone can understand them. If you have to have this book as a text for a class and don't care about learning any more than you have to, then go for it, it does seem to cover the very minimum basics. If you want to learn anything about the heart and how it works I'd get something else.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I believe it's technically called the Socratic method, but I call it the "guess what I'm thinking method" of teaching. Regardless of the content, this text is written in numbered paragraphs with random words missing within. The missing words are in a column to the right of the text, like it's a quiz. I find this distracting and unhelpful. There are parts of the book that actually are quizzes, which is fine, but leaving out every instance of the word "electrical" on a page and putting a blank line in its place is just teaching me to work through frustration. Maybe that's the point, but I doubt it.
