ECG Module


The ECG module is designed to improve the ability of all levels of ECG interpreters. This includes the medical student just beginning to read ECGs to the level of cardiology fellow. The module consists of chapters, which begin with the introduction of the morphology of the ECG and progresses to cover the various topics needed to interpret more complex ECGs. The module is by no means comprehensive and suggestions, comments and input are always welcome.

This module has examples of the various topics illustrated with 12-lead ECGs as well as with telemetry strips. There are ladder diagrams to help with the understanding of arrhythmias and action potentials to better understand the effects of drugs on the ECG. The module concludes with an ECG self-test and discussion.

The chapters discussed in this module include:


Any suggestions, questions or comments can be forwarded to Emily Groepper.
