I am a recent new graduate and I just accepted a position on a cardiac telemetry floor. I have taken ACLS and a rhythm course (no 12-Lead EKG yet but I am planning on it - the hiring process took less than a week from application/licensure so I didn't have time). I have two questions:
(1) Does anyone have a brain sheet they would recommend for cardiac Tele?
(2) Given that I have limited time to study before starting training, what do you recommend I study? Currently I am reviewing my ACLS and rhythm ID.
Thank you so much for your help!

Rhythm and ACLS is good. I would also start brushing up on cardiac meds. Beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, diuretics. Indications, monitoring, and side effects.
Haven't used a brain sheet in years, but if you start learning about the drugs you will be ahead of the game when you hit the floor
Thank you so much for that!!! I have been doing a lot of that but I definitely needed that reminder about diuretics. For some reason I always need to revisit those. I really appreciate it.
