For all courses in basic or introductory cardiography

This package includes MyLab BRADY


Focused coverage and realistic hands-on practice help students master basic arrhythmias
Basic Arrhythmias, Eighth Edition
, gives beginning students a strong basic understanding of the common, uncomplicated rhythms that are a foundation for further learning and success in electrocardiography. Concepts are presented in a flexible, progressive approach to allow for self-paced or classroom learning. Chapters cover basic electrophysiology, waves and measurements, rhythm analysis, and the five major groups of arrhythmias. Basic Arrhythmias includes appendices on Clinical Implications, Cardiac Anatomy and Physiology, 12-Lead Electrocardiography, Basic 12-Lead Interpretation, and Pathophysiology of Arrhythmias. Practice EKG rhythm strips are included in most chapters to give students extensive, realistic hands-on practice–the single most important element in developing arrhythmia interpretation skills.


Personalize learning with MyLab BRADY

MyLab BRADY is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program that gives you the power to reach students on their terms–and to teach however you like. Encourage students to immerse themselves in the Pearson eText on their own time and use your classroom sessions to workshop key concepts. Or, enhance your lectures with videos and other engaging content that brings course material to life. Fostering engagement both within and outside the classroom, MyLab BRADY helps students better prepare for class, quizzes, and exams–resulting in improved performance in the course.
