When I was in paramedic school, I was having some difficulties with some of the rhythm strips at first, especially in measuring waveform distances, as well as a Mobitz 2 heart block. This book helped me put ECG's together. It starts from the very beginning, such as what the waveforms mean, what distances should be for said waveforms, and finally explanations of each rhythm, where they begin (location wise in the heart) and what they mean. At the end of each chapter, it has a review of the rhythm's you just discussed, by interpreting 10-20 strips. At the end of the book there was 200 some random strips. By the end of cardiology, I could read pretty much any strip that was thrown at me, and I occasionally go back and practice, plus reread some information about some of the ECG's we see in the field and what causes them and how to treat them. This book is great, and I would recommend it to anyone going to school to be a paramedic, RN, PA, RNP, or MD.

I recently graduated from nursing school and have started working in a medical ICU. ECGs are part of the job and I had zero background with this material from nursing school. The hospital has a pretty rigorous course of online modules to study and although they were thorough, at the end I was still left wondering what is the best way to remember these rhythms? Well, that's where this ECG Workout book comes in. There are 3 things that make it a great learning tool and resource: 1)cheat sheets 2)tear out rhythm cards 3)practice strips divided by types of rhythm. Let me elaborate further...

Cheat Sheets - at the end of each rhythm section (ex. atrial arrhythmias) there would be a 1-page summary sheet of the key features to look for in each rhythm. I used these to help me identify the rhythms in the following pages of practice strips.

Rhythm Cards - these are like tear-out flashcards. Ironically I had planned to make some to help me remember the particulars of each rhythm, but this book did it for me! Nice formatting, very thorough.

Practice Strips - anyone who is working to learn ECGs knows that you can learn a rhythm, but none of the practice/test strips look like the "example" model you are shown. What I like in this book is that at the end of each section (atrial arrhythmias, ventricular arrhythmias, junctional arrhythmias...) each chapter has its own collection of 100 practice strips. So you take the 1-page cheat sheet for the section/chapter you are working in, and you know that the rhythms in the practice section will be one of those on the sheet. It takes away all the guessing of if the rhythm might be some other kind and it makes the study much more focused.

This book is great for practice strips! The only way to learn rhythm interpretation is to practice, practice, practice. This book is loaded with strips (and their answers). The content is OK. I didn't like how the author grouped junctional rhythms and heart blocks in the same section, too confusing for the new practitioner.

Format: Paperback
Quite extensive workbook about hearth arrhythmias. In each case chapter starts with short theory and than examples of charts for the particular arrhythmias and than you get a chance to practice yourself with number of charts, answers in the back with explanations. It is a good practice book.

I am one of those people who sometimes quickly forget what I read if I deem the subject difficult or intimidating. Often I have to get more than one reference, but this is one of the better books on learning basic EKGs. Lots of practice strips, flash cards, and thorough explanations. Once I learned the KEY differences of certain rhythms to simplify recognition then read the WHY OR HOW it happens, it made learnng EKGs so much easier, at least it did for me. I used to have such a mental block with learning EKGs because it looked like a foreign language, and involves a human life; it made me paranoid. I took a couple of home study classes in the past (just to conquer learning it, for my personal enrichment), but this book along with a formal class helped to prepare me for ACLS (for continuing education only). I am proud I finally learned the concepts to put it all together. I do not practice in acute care, but I am proud I understand a lot more thanks to this book. Now, if only I can find a really good book on algebra then I will feel like a genius!! ;-) I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BE THE ONLY BOOK NEEDED TO LEARN EKG INTERPRETATION.

This is a good book for those that already have some knowledge about ECGs...if you are new to them, I would suggest finding another book to help.

I teach Cardiovascular Tech at a community college. I use "ECG Workout" in conjunction with Dubin's "Rapid Interpretation of EKG's" to teach my students. Huff's text is clearly written in simple English. I prefer Dubin's step-by-step explanations in some instances, but there is no better practice book than Huff's "ECG Workout." The strips are clearly printed and her interpretations are on the money.
