Video Lessons – Step By Step.

Lesson Video

Lesson videos build a foundation of knowledge from the bottom up, and important concepts are repeated to make sure you get it! We will show you how to diagnose basic and complex arrhythmias you may find on a rhythm strip. If your goal is to read 12-lead ECGs, our physiologic approach will explain WHY the ECG looks the way it does, which helps you to remember what to look for.

"ChalkTalks" – Practice Your Skills

ChalkTalk Demo

One unique part of ECG Academy are the weekly ChalkTalks, which are 6-minute video tutorials based on a real rhythm strip or 12-lead ECG. These practical "how-to" lessons help you gain confidence in applying your knowledge to an unknown tracing. If you already know the basics, ChalkTalks help you improve your skills. You will learn how to read complex ECGs that don't look like the ones in the textbook!
