Advanced EKG Analysis
This online program allows analysis of 12-lead ECGs with calipers, plumb line, and interactive ladder diagram. Interpretations for the example ECGs can be found here, with a detailed explanation here (6MB PDF). To best utilize this website, open “Start ECGviewer” in one window, and open “(6MB PDF)” in another window, analyze the rhythm in the viewer and then toggle to the explanation to check yourself. This is very good. Blaufuss. Flash; Shockwave.

Electrocardiogram Recognition and Ablation of Atrial Tachycardia
Focal atrial tachycardia (AT) is a relatively uncommon cause of supraventricular tachycardia, but when present is frequently difficult to treat medically.
Nurses working in a Coronary Care Unit, emergency services, or in the EP Laboratory should be competent not only in obtaining a good ECG, but also in identifying potentially life-threatening situations identifiable through the 12-lead electrocardiogram. Complete all the topics, not necessarily in an orderly fashion.
A variety of arrhythmias along with their EKG’s and electrograms. A good way to test yourself.
