NCLEX Review: EKG Interpretation: Atrial Fibrillation and Atrial Flutter
This NCLEX exam tutorial video covers how to interpret an EKG strip, specifically atrial fibrillation (the most common abnormal heart rhythm) and atrial flutter. We will start by introducing a simple 5-step approach to reading all EKG strips with an example. As a refresher during your NCLEX review, be sure to watch this video as we go over the following: what atrial flutter is and what it looks like on an EKG, symptoms a patient may exhibit if they have atrial flutter, what happens when a patient has atrial fibrillation and how it looks on an EKG and how to use the 5-step approach to evaluate atrial flutter and atrial fibrillation.
