Study abnormal EKG tracings for Family Medicine

The EKG review discusses a systematic approach to rhythm interpretation to help diagnose, monitor, and determine the severity of conditions such as:

  • -Congenital heart defects
  • -Coronary artery disease
  • -Heart attack
  • -Heart failure
  • -Heart murmurs
  • -Cardiomyopathy
  • -Pericarditis
  • -Cardiac arrhythmias

EKG Book Content

Family Medicine EKG Interpretation

Prepare for your exam with UMock EKG Review. Each chapter includes a
complete review of topics with a Q&A at the end of the book.

Sinus Rhythms
Learn how to identify features and qualifying criteria of sinus rhythms including normal, sinus bradycardia, sinus tachycardia, sinus dysrhythmia, sinus arrest, and sinus exit block.
Atrial Rhythms
Recognize complexes and rhythms for premature atrial complexes, wandering atrial pacemaker rhythm, multifocal atrial tachycardia, atrial flutter, and atrial fibrillation.
Junctional Rhythms
Identify features and criteria for premature junctional complexes, junctional escape beats, accelerated junctional rhythm, junctional tachycardia, and supraventricular tachycardia.
Heart Block Rhythms
Review the features and criteria for first degree heart block, second degree heart block type I, second degree heart block type II, and third degree/complete heart block.
Ventricular Rhythms
Identify features of ventricular rhythms including premature ventricular complexes, agonal rhythm, idioventricular and accelerated idioventricular rhythm, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, and asystole.
Pacemaker Rhythms
Learn how to recognize features of pacemaker rhythms including atrial and ventricular pacemaker rhythm, atrioventricular pacemaker rhythm, and failure to capture.
12-Lead ECG Axis
Review of which major coronary artery supports each area of the heart and learn the fundamentals of electrical axis determination and the presence of cardiac axis deviation.
Performing 12-Lead
Learn 12-lead EKG tracings which presents the electrical activity of the heart on two planes. Leads I, II, III, aVR, aVL, and aVF give a flat view of the heart from surrounding edges of a frontal plane.
Bundle Branch Block
Recognize the features for the presence of a complete left or right bundle branch block.
Left Ventricular Hypertrophy
Learn how to recall and apply the process for measurement to determine the presence of left ventricular hypertrophy.
Injury, Ischemia & Infarction
Review of the fundamentals and differences of indicative and reciprocal views, and recognize EKG changes caused by STEMI, ischemia, injury, and infarction.
EKG Terminology
Learn basic EKG terminology including PR interval, QRS complex, QT interval and ST interval.

" The EKG review from UMock goes through everything from the basics to arrhythmias to spotting different myocardial infarctions. This is an essential addition to the resources you’ll need to study for the Family Medicine Board exam. "
