Electrocardiogram Lessons, Practice Strips


Welcome to our Electrocardiogram Lessons, Drills and Reference Guides. The links below provide access to our training materials and reference guides well as to several drills and quizzes.

EKG Reference Guide

Our electrocardiogram 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 the EKG. Interactive digital calipers can be used for measuring key features on each tracing.

Electrocardiogram Interpretation - Introduction

This introductory EKG interpretation training course reviews the main features of EKGs. 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 identification of these EKGs.

Electrocardiogram Practice Strips

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.

Electrocardiogram Quiz

Our Electrocardiogram quiz presents twenty tracings. Correct (and fast answers) earn quiz points. At the end of the quiz, your score is compared to mean and top scores for all recent website visitors. We also provide a graded report of your answers compared to correct responses. Quiz ekg tracings are randomly selected from our database of our 350 tracing, so that this quiz can be repeated many times while retaining its challenge.

Electrocardiogram Monitor Quiz (beta version)

Our Electrocardiogram Monitor Quiz is similar to the standard Quiz, but with a twist. Instead of static tracings, the EKGs 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.
