Awarded first place in the 2019 AJN Book of the Year Awards in the Critical Care-Emergency Nursing category. Help simplify ECGs for your students! Using an easy-to-understand, step-by-step approach and conversational tone, The 12-Lead ECG in Acute Coronary Syndromes, 4th Edition, describes the process of 12-lead ECG interpretation for accurate recognition and effective treatment of ACS. This new edition has been streamlined to emphasize practice and explanation. It shows students how to determine the likelihood of ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) versus other causes of ST elevation. It also covers innovative technology and evolving paradigms in ECG interpretation, such as the Cabrera format, which sequences impulse generation in a logical anatomic progression. In addition, over 100 practice ECGs—more than 25 of which are new—help students test their knowledge. Written by two well-known educators—Tim Phalen, a paramedic, and Barbara Aehlert, an experienced nurse and popular ACLS instructor, this guide incorporates the latest American Heart Association Emergency Cardiac Care (ECC) Guidelines, as well as new research and information on recognizing and treating ACS in both hospital and prehospital environments.

    • Updated Case studies promote early recognition and treatment of ACS.
    • Outlines efficient strategies for identifying STEMI, allowing quick initiation of patient care.
    • Contains more than 200 colorful illustrations, including a large number of ECGs.
    • Offers practical advice for recognizing noninfarct causes of ST elevation, including left ventricular hypertrophy, bundle branch block, ventricular rhythms, benign early repolarization, and pericarditis.
    • Features a lay-flat spiral binding, making the book easy to use in any setting.
