Format: Paperback
Let me start by saying that I hold the same certification as the author of this book, and work in the same field, analyzing the same type of data, and I have for several years. If I tried to use even half of the labels used in this book to identify strips on my reports, I would be fired. This is the worst cardiac arrhythmia reference I have ever seen. It was purchased with the idea that this might be a great reference for our monitoring center. It was instead a total waste of money. I'm shocked that it was actually PUBLISHED. The book isn't worth the paper it is printed on.

Let me give you a few examples of the absurdities in this book. Consider page 47...we see a strip labelled "Sinus Rhythm with Wenckebach." The strip is very CLEARLY a Mobitz II with 2:1 conduction....a more serious arrhythmia than Wenckebach (Mobitz I). It's so clear that a brand new student could recognize it. How about page 11, where you see a strip labelled "Sinus Bradycardia with Atrial Bradycardia." This rhythm is predominantly an accelerated junctional rhythm, with intermittent sinus beats. You cannot in good conscience call this a Sinus Bradycardia, given that the P waves are nearly all inverted....her argument is that the PRI is not < .12ms. You can have a variable PRI with a junctional rhythm. For the record, 'atrial' indicates that the electrical activity originates above the ventricles. Even a junctional rhythm is originating above the ventricles. So basically, she has given you the most vague, ridiculous label possible, without actually describing what is happening in the EKG rhythm strip. In other areas of the book, she labels a sinus tachycardia with a nonconducted P wave as Atrial Flutter. Again, it's so clearly NOT Atrial Flutter, it's ridiculous.

Don't buy this book.

This is a book meant to teach people about full disclosure telemetry monitoring, a subject for which there is little to no information on. I work as telemetry tech in a hospital and we just switched over to full disclosure and I found this book informative and helpful.

More About the Author

S. L. Kotar and J. E. Gessler have been writing together for more than four decades. Our earliest success was in selling a script to GUNSMOKE, entitled "Kitty's Love Affair" (CBS' title, not ours; there was no affair, as opposed to "Matt's Love Story," where there was an affair). According to John Mantley (executive producer) and Jack Miller (story consultant) this was the highest-rated episode in the series' 20 year history.
We published the iconclastic Civil War and 19th-Century magazine "The Kepi" for many years, developing several important articles on "Stonewall Jackson." We created and ran the authorized web site for Timothy Dalton for almost two decades and also the authorized web site for Darren McGavin and Kathie Browne (www.darrenmcgavin.net). Our published books include "Riverboat: The Evolution of a Television Series," from BearManor (2009) and a comprehensive text on full-disclosure telemetry monitoring (non-invastive Cardiology)published in March, 2010. We have been writing for McFarland Publishing for several years. Our books for them include "The Steamboat Era: A History of Fulton's Folly on American Rivers, 1807-1860"; "Ballooning: A History, 1782-1900"; and "The Rise of the American Circus, 1716-1899). Beginning in 2012 we began a series of historical medical texts; the first in the series was "Smallpox: A History." Later in 2013 or early 2014 we will publish "Cholera: A History" and we are currently writing a text on yellow fever for publication by McFarland in 2014.
We have also decided to go back to our roots and publish our fiction. We have two series in development with Tirgearr Publishing, both 19th century stories. They will be published as e-books in early 2014.
Our interests include modern non-invasive cardiology; all studies involving the 19th-Century, including the Civil War and medicine; and we are also huge baseball fans. We consider ourselves Whitey Herzog's greatest fans and we are very proud that he was FINALLY elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2010. We write fiction in many genre, including Civil War, Westerns, science fiction, horror and psychological novels.
