Huzar's ECG and 12-Lead Interpretation, 5th Edition, helps students recognize various heart rhythms by their appearance on the ECG, correlated with the patient’s clinical signs and symptoms. The content is structured to match the order in which students acquire specific skills: ECG components are presented first, followed by rhythm interpretation and clinical implications. Author’s Notes allow students to benefit from the author’s decades of clinical and field experience. Take-Home Points, Key definitions, chapter review questions, and practice strips help students understand and retain complex information.

    • Coverage of both basic and advanced concepts incorporates the latest research developments and provides material pertinent to both beginning and experienced prehospital care providers.
    • UPDATED and EXPANDED! Key characteristics of each heart rhythm are summarized to allow you to learn or review each rhythm at a glance.
    • Patient care algorithms outline step-by-step management and treatment, correlating ECG interpretation with history and exam findings.
    • Advanced treatment content, such as complete coverage of thrombus formation, treatment, and management, offers critical information for both hospital and prehospital settings.

    • NEW! Author’s Notes highlight special considerations, alternative diagnoses, possible complications or warning signs, normal variations, and more, allowing learners to benefit from the author’s expertise.
    • NEW! A bulleted Take-Home Points summary of each chapter highlights need-to-know information about the most important topics covered.
