Does anybody know where I can get Basic & Advanced EKG
interpretation and recognition training courses here in socal?
any advise on a good EKG textbook?
If you have a computer, I'd recommend the CD BASIC DYSRHYTHMIAS INTERACTIVE! by MosbyJems ISBN 0-323-01478-X www.elsevierhealth.com
This is an awesome CD. You pick your own skill level. Even teaches about axis deviations, old MI, non-Qwave MIs in a down to earth fashion. It's even fun.
If you want a CD that you can match on one screen one rhythm to another like the blocks, junctionals etc, I recommend LEARNING ARRHYTHMIA RECOGNITION (The Arrhythmia Teaching System) Catalog number: 717-9010 Cardionics, Inc. 910 Bay Star Blvd Webster, TX 77598 USA 1-800-364-5901 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org www.cardionics.com
(This CD is pricey and not as exciting as the BASIC DYSRHYTHMIAS CD but is more simplified). Both go into the basics and have quizes.
For books, I like ECGs MADE EASY by Barbara Aehlert and published by Mosby. ISBN #999762788-1. She also authored ACLS Quick Review Study Guide. ISBN 0-323-00892-5
If you want practice reading strips, I recommend ECG WORKOUT Exercises in Arrhythmia Interpretation by Jane Huff, RN, CCRN and published by Lippincott. ISBN # 0-7817-3192-5
Hope this helps. By the way, where is your home town?
