EKG Interpretation - Nursing Flashcards

  • 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

ECG made easy!

I’ve been struggling trying to learn and understand rhythms for a long time. Thankfully this deck makes it so much more simple to understand. I also love that the cards are bigger than the standard size they usually come in to help better see and count the boxes. Thanks so much Cathy!

I purchased the 10 flashcard deck Value Pack to study for the ATI Comprehensive exam in my BSN program. I recently purchased the EKG card deck for my Nurse Practitioner program. Thank you so much for being a part of my success while matriculating through the BSN program and now the AGNP program. I highly suggest purchasing these cards and the other flashcards that are available!

It comes very quickly in the mail—this not my first order, I have many of her different decks. It’s very informational, helpful, and the Cool Chicken (that gives you a way to memorize it) is Extremely helpful. I work on a Med-Surg floor as an LPN. I hear different rhythms, lab values, terminology, and see expressions on my charge nurse's and Dr.'s face, so I know it’s serious, but to me, being an LPN, I am thinking to myself, "what’s the big deal?" Let’s just say these Lab Values, EKG, & Meds cards have really helped. I'm looking forward to the Mental Health ones as in my 2nd job I work on a Mental Health Unit, and all the different meds are PO and IM, which is a lot of times what you are giving. They will be very helpful for me. Thank ya for making these cards, Denise
