EKG Interpretation - Nursing Flashcards

The EKG Flashcards were designed to help both nurses and nursing students learn and retain information about EKG interpretation. The flashcards are both a clear, complete study tool and a helpful reference for practicing RNs, PNs, and other medical professionals. These flashcards will help you learn:

  • Where to place EKG leads
  • Facts about the heart conduction system and how they are recorded on an EKG
  • EKG waveform components
  • The steps of EKG interpretation
  • The natural pacemakers in the heart and how they differ
  • Differentiation of the essential rhythms (sinus, atrial, junctional, and ventricular) and dysrhythmias
  • How electrolyte imbalances, and cardiac/respiratory disorders impact EKG results
  • Causes, symptoms, and interventions for bradycardia and tachycardia

What's included?

  • Forty-two (42) 4” x 6” flashcards plus a cover card with a glossy front and a matte back for easy note-taking.
  • Illustrations for all included dysrhythmias
  • Effective, fun memory devices for select dysrhythmias

EKG Interpretation Flashcards

These flashcards were amazing. I enjoyed the drawings and the explanation on how to differentiate each rhythm. Truly helped me do amazing on my first Critical Care exam. I also enjoyed how the flashcards covered the interventions!

Get these ASAP!!

I wish I bought these in the beginning of the semester, and if you're starting Med-Surg 2 then you should definitely get these before you start. I was having the worst time with interpreting EKGs, everything looked like scribbles. Now I feel confident going into my final because of these cards. Perfect drawings, and perfect explanations, as well as treatment.

Sinus rhythm check!

Whew!!! So this test was rumored to be the hardest in our program! I ordered this set as soon as I received my syllabus! When I tell you I answered every strip correctly along with interventions for each with the help of these cards. The needed details on each are so helpful and the hints at the bottom saved me. Thank you so much! You are a God Send!!!

Another Amazing Set!!

These cards and the accompanying videos are so amazing; I don't know how to express my happiness in this small review. Cathy once again breaks down a complicated subject into easy to understand chunks simply. I'm sad there is no button for six stars!!
