NEW: September 2019 - 6 monthly EKGs

This educational site is dedicated to medical students and housestaff. It is open to all without cost or “password.” Electrocardiography remains an important aspect of cardiac evaluation, but training in the subject is sometimes lacking or incomplete. This has fostered use of computer interpretation, which is too often incorrect-jeopardizing both the patient and the interpreter. For questions please email us at wpan747@gmail.com .

The design of the site includes:

CURRENT EXAMPLES -- This group of 6 EKGs is present in a quiz and answer format. Usually there is a monthly update of the tracings. Please go to SUBSCRIBE and provide your name and email address. When new tracings become available, members will receive notification.

AN EKG BOOK -- This site provides chapters from the textbook, “Concepts and Cautions in Electrocardiography.” Unless you have experience with EKG interpretation, it is recommended that you begin by reading segments in the book. The first chapter, identified as “Introduction,” presents instruction in axis determination and the concepts of “vectors.” EKG subjects can be selected for self-study. Explanations and discussion of the subject are designed for the “trainee level.”

REVIEWS -- This portion of the site contains numerous additional EKG examples. It has been revised and made more “user-friendly.” Specific topics can be selected from a general category of abnormalities. All tracings can be printed for additional study or to share with others. Many files are large and require time to appear! It is suggested that you download and copy files of interest for ease of later use. We appreciate your patience with the lengthy download time that some files may require.


If questions arise or if you wish review of a scanned tracing, the cardiologists listed below would be pleased to help:

Dr. Bill Nelson: wpan747@gmail.com
Dr. Mike Fisher: drf.nelsonsekgs@gmail.com
Dr. Mike Wilson: jmwil@sbcglobal.net

NOTE: Unfortunately, a legal issue requires that any answer be regarded as “educational” and not as advice for care.
