12 lead EKG resources?

Posted

Can anybody recommend any good 12 lead EKG resources? Books or online learning (as long as it is reasonably priced!) My institution no longer offers a class and honestly the online modules I have tried haven't been very effective...I feel like I need a really good review book or some sort of online presentation that I can view. I seem to do better when someone tries to explain something to me. Thanks everyone!

Thanks for the resources!

Halleh, I heard that book is great. I just wasn't sure if it focused more on rhythm interpretation (on a standard strip) instead of 12-lead interpretation. I have ECG Workout by Jane Huff RN which is great, but doesn't go into 12-lead interpretation. ECG's Made Incredibly Easy is also another good source but it only touches briefly on 12-lead interpretation.

Another great book that I've used is:

12-Lead EKG Confidence a Step By Step Guide

Amazon.com: 12-Lead EKG Confidence: A Step-by-Step Guide, Second Edition (9780826104724): Ms. Jacqueline M. Green MS RN APN-C CNS CCRN, Dr. Anthony J. Chiaramida MD FACC: Books

Its a bit more expensive but it focuses on the 12-lead and breaks it down in a way so that you understand the whys and hows instead of strict memorization. It's really user-friendly and interesting.

Hope that helps!

first thing i would do is talk to your nursing educator, see if you can get a class together.

Check out Bob Page. He is a well known EMS educator and teaches a great 12-lead course all over the country and also internationally. You might want to check his website to see if he will be in your area. I attended his 12-lead course which was filled with both Paramedics and RN's.

Looks like the one I can attend will be in Dallas...do you know how much he charges for his 12-lead course? I also see he has a book on 12-leads :)

The company I work for had paid for mine so I am not sure what the cost of the course is. Sorry.

I found this website recently while looking for content on an orientation manual I am putting together. It is an excellent reference and is free.
