I feel that nurses sometimes take Normal Sinus Rhythm for granted, especially in the the case discussed here by authors Dillon Dzikowicz and Mary Carey. The patient was young, normally healthy, and was experiencing sepsis from a cat bite. What I liked about this article is how the authors described every single aspect of the EKG cycle and it was determined that a 12 lead was necessary. I even picked up tips on simple reasons why the "P" wave may be difficult to determine due to simple things like poor lead placement. This article is perfect as it is concise, complete, and could be use by a preceptor with a new graduate nurse. Easy to understand. I have downloaded this article and will suggest that the unit based educator use with new RN's as they learn EKG interpretation. Martha Brooks, MS< RN, CMSRN
