NEW: December 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 firstname.lastname@example.org .
The design of the site includes:
BEDSIDE CARDIAC EXAM New
EKG QUIZES -- 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.”
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.
PLEASE ALLOW 2-3 MINUTES FOR FILES TO DOWNLOAD TO YOUR COMPUTER.
