Its concise presentation provides users with a reference for study of ECG recognition, mechanism, pathophysiology, clinical implications, pediatric considerations, bedside diagnosis, emergency treatment, and long-term cures. As always, users can count on the organization and chapter titles being consistent with those in the pocket guide's sister text, Conover: Understanding Electrocardiography, 8th Edition.Places the diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias and cardiac emergencies in compact outline form.Gives users all the important, accurate information of its sister text, Understanding Electrocardiography, 8th Edition, including ECG recognition, mechanism, pathophysiology, clinical implications, pediatric considerations, bedside diagnosis, emergency treatment, and long-term cures - in an outline format that allows for quick and easy retrieval.Provides essential information on pediatrics whenever applicable throughout entire text.Includes an illustration of the heart which depicts step-by-step activation related to ECG.Explains the mechanisms of arrhythmias in a clear and concise manner with illustrations.Provides all forms and aspects of atrial flutter in an easy-to-use outline format.Presents bedside diagnosis information which helps nurses make an effective physical evaluation.Describes appropriate medical responses in clear terms (for example, response to paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia).Chapters are revised to incorporate the new American Heart Association Guidelines and new treatment modalities.Congenital Long QT Syndrome (Chapter 26) is extensively revised to reflect new information on genetic codes and the inherited and often fatal ECG anomaly.Acquired Long QT Syndrome (Chapter 27) is extensively revised.
