      When presenting an ECG, one should first say the patients name, age and the date the recording was done. After introducing the basics of ECG electrophysiology I will go through ECG interpretation in the following logical order as recommended by the book “the ECG made easy”:3 1. rate & rhythm 2. conduction intervals 3. cardiac axis 4. EKG | ECGAn Ultimate Step-By-Step Guide to Lead EKG | ECG Interpretation, Rhythms & Arrhythmias Including Basic Cardiac Dysrhythmias We have researched extensively and consulted key figure in the nursing fraternity before coming up with this book. All the finer details you need as a nurse, so as to effectively interpret the EKG has been taken in to account and explained in a very friendly.

    Adult ECG Rhythms Online. Used by hundreds of hospitals and nursing schools around the country, ECG Online is offered as a stand alone course. This course is ideal for critical care nurses, cardiac technicians and other healthcare professional working with monitored patients. The ECG (EKG) is a valuable diagnostic tool for the healthcare provider whether they are a doctor, nurse, or specialist in cardiac rehabilitation. Understanding the ECG (EKG) enables the healthcare provider to respond correctly and to treat dangerous and potential deadly arrhythmias as quickly and efficiently as possible.

    An ECG tracing is designed to give a graphic display of the electrical activity in the heart. The pattern displayed on the ECG is called the heart rhythm. However, an ECG cannot tell you about the mechanical activity of the heart. You will have to assess the patient’s blood pressure and pulse to determine this (Jacobsen et al., ).

Study of a patient's cardiac rhythms using an EKG may indicate normal or abnormal conditions. Abnormal rhythms are called arrhythmia or sometimes, dysrhythmia. Arrhythmia is an abnormally slow or fast heart rate or an irregular cardiac rhythm. During a single heart beat, several electrical events occur.

Heart rate can be calculated by dividing (the number of tiny squares in one minute of normal speed ECG paper) by the number of tiny squares between each R wave on the ECG (Paul and Hebra, ).

This works well for regular rhythms. For irregular rhythms, the ECG paper is marked off in six-second intervals.

Saunders, ©   1. Heart Blocks: “The Heart Block Poem” Heart blocks are abnormal heart rhythm where the heart beats too slowly. In this condition, the electrical signals that tell that heart to contract are partially or totally blocked between the upper chambers (atria) and lower chambers (ventricles).

The more you practice rhythm analysis the more comfortable you will be with the process involved and the intuitive aspects of interpretation. Description When a normal heart is beating this is the result of electrical impulses that spread through the atria and then the ventricles in.
