Lessons. Practice Strips and Drills
EKG Quizzes


Welcome to our Electrocardiogram Training and Reference Guides. The links below provide access to basic training lessons, to our Reference Guides well as to several arrhythmia drills and quizzes.

EKG Interpretation - Introduction

This introductory interpretation training course reviews the main features of electrocardiogram strips. A method for analyzing an electrocardiogram is presented. This method includes assessment of rhythm, calculating heart rate, observing P-wave forms, measurement of wave intervals and segments and the evaluation of other relevant waves. In addition, our drills allow students to practice electrocardiogram identification.

EKG Practice Drills (Practice Strips)

EKG practice drills provide users with a quick and interactive method for learning arrhythmias. Users are asked to identify the arrhythmia and then receive immediate feedback after answering a multiple choice question. Tips for analyzing are used to interactively instruct each user. A directory of ekg strips is available.

Reference Guide

Our EKG reference guide provides information on over forty different arrhythmias. For each type of arrhythmia there are multiple examples, actual patient tracings and simulated electrocardiograms. We also provide an annotated tracing with a summary of the key features used in interpreting electrocardiograms. Interactive digital calipers can be used for measuring key features on each tracing.

EKG Lectures

Use EKG.Academy's library of free presentations on cardiac rhythms. These training materials present the fundamentals for each major category of cardiac rhythms. The fundamentals are reinforced with practice exercises throughout each lecture.

ECG Monitor Quiz (beta version)

Our Monitor Quiz is similar to the standard Quiz, but with a twist. Instead of static tracings, the ECGs are presented using a simulated patient monitor. After the twenty tracings are evaluated, we present a graded report along with static images of each tracing. Your score is compared to a mean score for all recent website visitors. Don't worry, your score is kept private.
