I was an basic and intermediate EMT for years. Intimidated by learning how to interpret and analyze EKG’s, it was, by far, one of the most frustrating topic for me in paramedic class. My instructor recommended the “Basic Arrhythmias” book by Gail Walraven and in no time at all interpreting and analyzing EKG’s became easy and soon after I was doing it like a second nature.

Now, as an EMT instructor, I recommend “Basic Arrhythmias” to my students and I am confident that they will find peace of mind in learning EKG’s, just as I did.

I teach a Basic EKG Course in staff development and I highly recommend this book for all levels of health care providers from unit coordinators to nurse managers. The arrythmia practice strips are excellent and having the correct answers in the back of the book allows the adult learner to verify their interpertations or seek further learning in an area. The explaination of a difficult subject is made easy. I have used this book for several years and look forward to the new editions to see what else Gail Walraven has included.

I learned disrhythmia interpretation in a weekend with the help of this book, and still pull the book off the shelf ten years later to brush up on my skills. I recommend this book for anyone needing to learn and understand how to read a cardiac monitor.

I have to say that this is the best college text book I have ever used. Clear, concise explanations of semi-complicated topics. I could not ask any more out of a book, except maybe lowering the price.

Great text for beginners learning rhythms. Lots of practice rhythms and I definitely mastered cardiac from this text! Explains things very easy and clear.
