The 50 Case Studies Course is an excellent review of 12-lead ECG and Rhythm interpretation. It contains 50 12-Lead ECG tracings with clinical discussions and quizzes scattered throughout the course for learning reinforcement. Topics include:  STEMI, non-STEMI, Bundle Branch Blocks, WPW, LVH, WPW as well as common rhythm abnormalities.  Each tracing is carefully reproduced as a duplicate of the clinical tracing (including artifact). Certain leads have been labeled and selectively magnified to emphasize the salient feature of that particular tracing.

This course can stand alone or work as a complement to the online 12-Lead ECG Interpretation Course, ideally taken after completion of the 12-lead Course. The 50 Case Studies will serve as a review and enhancement of the material covered in the 12-Lead Course.

This 50 Case Studies Course is written for the broad audience of:

  • Physicians & Medical Students
  • Midlevel Practitioners & Students
  • Nurses & Nursing Students
  • EMS Personnel
  • Monitor Techs
  • Exercise Physiologists
  • Respiratory Therapists
