The top of the heart is referred to as the “base”, and the bottom of the heart is called the “apex”. The primary purpose of the heart is to pump enough blood into the pulmonary (lung) and circulatory system (blood vessels) to meet the needs of the body. In a circular motion, blood is pumped out of the heart to arteries, capillaries. Electrocardiography is the process of producing an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG).It is a graph of voltage versus time of the electrical activity of the heart using electrodes placed on the skin. These electrodes detect the small electrical changes that are a consequence of cardiac muscle depolarization followed by repolarization during each cardiac cycle (heartbeat).
An ECG machine records these electrical signals across multiple heart beats and produces an ECG strip that is interpreted by a healthcare professional. How Electrocardiograms Work - ECG Strips To briefly summarize the components of a normal ECG tracings, it consist of waveform components which indicate electrical events during one heart beat. PART 1: TELEMETRY BASICS Telemetry is defined as the sensing and measuring of information at some remote location and then transmitting that information to a central or host location. There, it can be monitored and used to control a process at the remote site. The basic concept of telemetry has been in existence for centuries. Various mediums.

By Dale Dubin. I read this book as a medical student since it was recommended by our course-leader in cardiology. It is often marketed as being the easiest book in the field, and readers are apparently appealed by that.
Book Description: Many books on ECG interpretation use simulated ECG tracings. Most of the traces that you find in The ECG Workbook are from real people and of the quality that you will be expected to interpret from in practice.
There are two new chapters in this third edition of The ECG Workbook that add greatly to the usefulness of the book. ECG Rhythm Study Guide Normal Sinus Rhythm Looking at the ECG you'll see that: Rhythm ‐ Regular Rate ‐ (60‐ bpm) QRS Duration ‐ Normal P Wave ‐ Visible before each QRS complex P‐R Interval ‐ Normal.

It is important to understand how cardiac physiology is intertwined with other organ systems and how pathophysiology relates back to simple gross physiology. Cardiac physiology is one of the most important pieces of medical knowledge in healthcare.
The cardiovascular system is constantly adapting to maintain homeostasis in the body, specifically to maintain oxygen perfusion of tissues. Cardiac Investigations: Electrocardiography Principles of cardiac monitoring.
Continuous cardiac monitoring is an important tool in the clinical assessment of patients with a variety of conditions. It allows the detection of changes in heart rate, rhythm and conduction, and is essential in the dectection of life threatening arrhythmias.
Understanding normal cardiac anatomy and physiology is an important component of performing ACLS. The heart is a hollow muscle comprised of four chambers surrounded by thick walls of tissue (septum).
The atria are the two upper chambers and the ventricles are the two lower chambers. “Cardiac Telemetry Basics” was written to provide instructional information to assist individuals learning to identify and understand the various heart rhythms and arrhythmias observed on telemetry.
this book includes chapters that discuss various heart diseases and conditions, diagnostic testing, invasive and non-invasive procedures. To determine if the American College of Cardiology (ACC) cardiac monitoring guidelines accurately stratify patients according to their risks for developing clinically significant arrhythmias in non–intensive-care settings, we conducted a prospective cohort study of 2, consecutive patients admitted to a non–intensive-care telemetry unit over 7 months.
Course time: 6 – Hours. The ECG & Pharmacology Course is a classroom-based, facilitator-led course designed to improve electrocardiogram (ECG) recognition skills and pharmacology knowledge for treating cardiovascular emergencies.
