A perfect companion to ECG Interpretation Made Incredibly Easy!, this workbook uses the light-hearted Incredibly Easy! writing style that makes learning and reviewing complex information less threatening and more fun.
Chapters test the reader's knowledge of essential ECG topics, including ECG fundamentals, arrhythmia interpretation, arrhythmia treatment, and 12-lead ECGs. Readers maneuver through a variety of practice exercises that will suit different learning styles, including labeling, placing graphic procedure steps in sequence, crossword puzzles, and matching games. Nurse Joy and other host characters offer coaching and encouragement.
A useful model of a cross-sectioned artery showing the progression of atherosclerosis in which the narrowing of the artery is due to a build up of fatty tissue (cholesterol) and plaque.
The stages that may cause a decrease in blood flow, which can lead to a blood clot or thrombus are illustrated in the following 4 artery cross-sections:
normal artery with no disease
All stages rotate on hinge pin, model does not disassemble.
This model does not have a base
Includes an illustrated patient education card with structures labeled and stages described.
Model size: 1-3/8” dia. x 7/8” (1 cross-section)
Card size: 6-1/2” x 5-1/4”
A set of 3 one-half life size hearts shows a normal heart compared to a heart with myocardial infarction and congestive heart failure. Each heart is sectioned to show the inner chambers and the disorder.
The first heart shows normal heart anatomy
The second heart represents myocardial infarction (MI) - shows a partially healed, thinned, and discolored infarcted area and
a thrombus (blood clot) in the apex of the heart.
The third heart demonstrates congestive heart failure (CHF) as a result of hypertension. A thickened myocardium and the
enlarged and distorted shape of the heart is shown both internally and externally.
The anterior of each heart is vividly painted to show:
superior vena cava
cardiac arteries and veins
pulmonary arteries and veins
right and left auricle
The areas of myocardial infarction and CHF are indicated on the anterior of the diseased hearts
Includes an illustrated patient education card with structures and areas of disease labeled (card may be affixed to base)
Models may be removed from base.
This model contains three hearts. All models are approximately 50% actual size.
Normal heart : 4" x 2-14" x 1-3/4"
MI heart: 4" x 2-1/4 " x 1-3/4"
CHF heart : 4" x 2-1/2" x 2-1/4 "
Card size: 8-1/4” x 6-1/4”

The latest spinoff of the Incredibly Easy! Series®, the Incredibly Visual! Pocket Guides are compact, carry-anywhere references that use stunning full-color photos and illustrations and brief, easy-to-read text to present must-know clinical concepts. Ideally suited for visual learners, the information is easy to learn and recall because the visual images leave a lasting impression, and most topics are covered on a two-page spread.
ECG Interpretation: An Incredibly Visual! Pocket Guide presents the basics of interpreting various rhythm types such as sinus, atrial, junctional, ventricular, and AV blocks. Coverage includes must-know information on ECG changes in specific cardiac disorders such as myocardial infarction, in electrolyte imbalances, and with a pacemaker. Interpretation tips and life-threatening arrhythmias are highlighted throughout.
This chart contains a large image of a normal heart for easy comparison with important cardiac conditions. It visually and textually describes heart murmurs, cardiac arrhythmias, congenital heart defects, acquired heart defects, and high cholesterol and its consequences. Specifically, Heart Conditions:

Larger than life transparent model of an artery shows a constricted passage clogged with plaque. Turning the model shows the difficulty that red blood cells have flowing through an artery with atherosclerosis.
The model allows the viewer to peer inside an oversized artery and witness a grim series of events. First, blood cells struggle to flow through the artery which is clogged with thick, butter-colored plaque. As blood flow decreases, more blood cells pile up in the ever-narrowing gap. Finally, the cells stop moving altogether. It's a sobering reminder of the importance of cholesterol control. size: 2 1/2" x 7". Manufactured by WRS Group/Health Edco.
This publication is included on the ANCC: American Nurses Credentialing Center’s reference list.
Cardiac Nursing is recognized as "The Red Reference Book" for nurses caring for patients who have, or are at risk for developing, cardiac diseases. The book provides both basic and advanced content in evidence-based care and emphasizes health promotion, health maintenance, and disease management. The five-part organization consists of anatomy and physiology; physiologic and pathophysiologic responses; assessment of heart disease; pathophysiology of heart disease; and health promotion and disease prevention.
This edition has a new Global Perspective feature in most chapters, which reflects the rich cultural mix of patient populations and helps to determine appropriate care. A new chapter on Global Health reflects WHO commitments to reducing heart disease worldwide.
