Cardiac education needed!!!
- 0Jun 12, '11 by nurserinI'm recently new (weeks) to a PCU/cardiac/stroke floor from sub-acute and LTC experience. I am in search of a book that is specifically for cardiac issues, including disease, dysrythmias and medications specific to my cardiac floor. I'd like to study on my days off and my nursing school books are just too broad. Does anyone know of a book that covers all of this?!!!

Cardiovascular Nursing Secrets by Davis is a question and answer format that is a little more reader friendly.
I would also recommend Drugs for the Heart by Opie. It goes into great detail about the action of each drug class.
