    • Thumb tabs and lay-flat spiral binding make it easy to use anywhere, and the small size fits easily into a lab coat pocket.
    • Unique Flip and See section at the end of the book allows you to see each rhythm side-by-side with a normal ECG rhythm, and a written walkthrough explains the important differences between the rhythms.
    • Conversational language and clear illustrations and cartoons make the information easily accessible and understandable – as well as easy to remember and fun to learn.
    • Includes Cohn’s Pocket Guide for ECG Interpretation, a plastic heart rate ruler that’s useful for both students and practitioners as an aid in rhythm interpretation.
    • Updated to reflect the 2010 emergency cardiovascular care guidelines.
    • Companion CD features 66 practice rhythm strips in PowerPoint format, plus coverage of pediatric and neonatal patients.
    • Includes new treatment algorithms on the reverse side of Flip and See rhythm cards.
    • New, easy-to-follow organization with raised tabs, so you can find information quickly.
    • Expanded coverage of key topics such as normal rhythms and torsades de pointes.
