Tip of the Week– ECG Reading (pt 2)
Reading ECGs is like learning to read a new language. It’s not impossible, it just requires the nursing student to wrap their head around a new way of looking at things. There’s no better way to do this than to practice, practice, practice.
This section of the ECG reading review will cover some of the common arrythmias and some tricks that you can use to recognize them. This will use the basic steps covered in the earlier segment linked above so if you haven’t listened to that segment, I urge you to do so before listening to today’s show.
This episode will look at identifying the three degrees of heart block, including both Type I and Type II third degree heart blocks. There will also be discussions on the ways to recognize some of the differences in the supra ventricular tachycardias such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and SVT for unknown causes.
Use the linked sites below to continue your review of ECG reading and I will also recommend some good review guides available from Amazon. If you know of some other good resources, leave a link to them in the comments below this post.
