I think the list of rhythms you must know is probably longer than my memory. However, a solid understanding of what each part of an EKG is telling you from an electrophysiology standpoint will allow you to reason through nearly anything and allow you to an interpret a rhythm. Pattern recognition is great, but it should not be the end goal when learning rhythm interpretation. I found "The Only EKG Book You'll Ever Need" to be useful jumping off point.Curious in how much detail paramedics must know when it comes to Interpreting/reading ECG. What rhythms must you know? Any good book recommendations?
Your over compensation and Dunning-Kruger are showing.You know that part we like about being paramedics that allows us to diagnose conditions in the field? We earn that privilege (which nurses don’t have) by having high competency in cardiology knowledge.
There is certainly a lot of importance in some basic rhythm recognition and morphology presentation. More importantly is a solid understanding of the treatment of a broad category of abnormal cardiac pathologies.Curious in how much detail paramedics must know when it comes to Interpreting/reading ECG.
