I'm in need of a good resource for an EKG exam

  1. 0 Hello everyone, this is my first thread and I am wondering if there is anyone out there have any suggestions of a book or website to practice reading EKG strips. I am a new RN and got a job at a cardiothoracic stepdown unit. One of the requirements is for us to pass an EKG exam which I bet myself it'll include reading, interventions of what you'll do for a certain strip, etc. I'll be in a two day in class lecture just for EKG's and I thought this should be enough information to prepare for the exam but I am wondering if there is a good source which I can practice beforehand. I'd really appreciate for any input. Thank you!

    I found the book EKG Interpretation Made Incredibly Easy extremely helpful. Take a look on amazon and you could probably get one used. I know there are also a lot of websites with test strips you can look at. Good luck!

    I love that skillstat EKG simulator!

    As for books, I second ECG's Made Incredibly Easy. ECG Workout (by Jane Huff RN) is another excellent book that was on our required book list for nursing school.
