The brand-new "Portable" reference series, an extension of our popular "Portable RN and Portable LPN" titles, offers compact powerhouses of clinical information on core nursing topics. Our nurse-experts have sorted through the mass of relevant clinical information on each topic and focused in on the information that nurses need most in their daily practice. Each book presents practical, need-to-know information in an easy-to-use, concise format - an invaluable feature for today's time-starved nurses. Bullets, lists, charts, diagrams, and illustrations allow for quick retrieval and understanding. Synthesizing related, essential clinical information on need-to-know nursing topics, the books in the "Portable" series are like having an expert consultant right in your pocket. With its unique approach to ECG interpretation, "Portable ECG Interpretation" goes beyond the usual information found in ECG texts (including a step-by-step, fail-proof method for ECG interpretation; cardiac assessment; and, descriptions, common causes, and nursing considerations for all major arrhythmias) by including information on assessment of arrhythmia-related signs and symptoms, making the book even more applicable to everyday practice.
