For a busy clinician in the Emergency Department, the ability to spot a lethal cardiac condition is critical. Rapid Interpretation of ECGs in Emergency Medicine fills a gap in ECG training in an easy-to-use, highly visual format. ECG patterns, gathered from patient records and from the files of physicians at the Harvard-affiliated hospitals, represent the range of pathologies that hospitalists, internal medicine physicians, family medicine physicians, and emergency medicine physicians must recognize. The format of Rapid Interpretation of ECGs in Emergency Medicine is to first show an ECG in its native state to give you the chance to recognize and interpret salient features. The page can then be flipped to look at the same ECG with abnormal patterns enlarged, highlighted in color, and described in brief text. The ECGs are presented with and without annotations so you can test your diagnostic skills.

You, therefore, must convert what you have on hand into an equivalent dose to match the physician's orders. Paramedic Med-Math Made Easy provides step-by-step instructions for the most common, every day formulas you'll use in the field. In its easy to understand format, you'll quickly grasp how to convert pounds to kilograms, teaspoons to milliliters, or grams to milligrams. With the equivalents and formulas laid out, Paramedic Med-Math Made Easy then provides examples showing how formulas are used, along with guidelines to help you understand each calculation. Also included are practical-application problems and their answers. Each scenario illustrates how the application or conversion should be set up, so you can clearly see and understand how the calculation works and where pitfalls may occur. Admittedly, you can choose among several math formula methods to calculate proper doses to administer. Most important, though, is deciding what method works best for you-the one that prevents you from making any errors. Paramedic Med-Math Made Easy will help you do just that.
