EKG reading

Does anyone have any links to websites that make reading EKGs, recognizing arrhythmias and such, any easier? I just can't get it.

Not a website, but I love the book "The Art of EKG Interpretation" by Karen S. Ehrat. Helped me TONS! Highly recommended.

Thanks! That website is great! And I thought about buying that book... maybe now I will.

While in nursing school Im an EDT in the ER, one of the Doctors had this book kicking around, "The Only Ekg Book You'll Ever Need" by Malcolm S., Md. Thaler

I picked it up to try and get better at this skill and have really enjoyed it so far. I havent finished it yet (I feel guilty reading it when I should be doing one of my assigned class readings instead). One of the ER nurses read it too and he said he found it very uesfull.
