New! E-Books from Nursecom

In keeping with Nursecom's mission to make resources available to health professionals on Internet time (yes, right now), two guidebooks are now available in print, on CD-ROM and in eBook form for download.

1) The Six Second ECG: A Practical Guidebook to Basic ECG Interpretation is a 200+ page guidebook for those who are new to ECG interpretation. After teaching the Six Second ECG for the past 10 years, many students have requested that a book be written to capture this simple method as well as its many practical tips to reading ECG's.

Health professionals have praised The Six Second ECG Guidebook for its clarity, its simple effective 4 step method and in its ability to deliver on its promise - "You will be able to read ECG's and make sense of their significance within a few short hours."   click here to learn more or to buy

2) Managing Cardiac Emergencies (MCE) is a practical handbook for those faced with cardiac emergencies. Written by critical care practitioners who have taught cardiac arrest management and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) courses for a combined period of 30 years, this handbook begins where most ACLS texts leave off.

The MCE handbook's unique "makes sense" approach uses a practical physiological framework to manage cardiac emergencies. Rather than memorizing a sequence of actions, understand clinical actions as they fit within a physiological framework. The authors and their students have long hoped for a book that covers not only the what to do in a cardiac emergency but also why actions are performed from a physiological perspective.    click here to learn more or to buy

3) Look for the upcoming release of Responding to Acute Cardiac Events: The Basics and Beyond, a comprehensive guidebook to manage patients who are experiencing imminent or potential hemodynamic compromise. Incorporating both The Six Second ECG and Managing Cardiac Emergencies, this text also includes chapters on:

  • cardiac anatomy and physiology
  • respiratory physiology, assessment and management (includes blood gas analysis)
  • managing the hemodynamically stable patient with cardiac risk factors
  • acute coronary syndromes
  • cardiac pharmacology

Written with the candid style of the Six Second ECG and Managing Cardiac Emergencies, this guidebook presents the latest in cardiorespiratory management from a physiological perspective. The guidebook works step-by-step through the knowledge sets and skills necessary to manage acute cardiac events. Written by Tracy Barill BSN, MEd and Michael Dare BPE, RN, EMT-P.
