ECG topics include: Normal ECG patterns, LBBB, Sgarbossa criteria, RBBB, LVH (Left Ventricular Hypertrophy), WPW (Wolf-Parkinson-White), Lead avR, Pericarditis and more…

Take worry out of the dreaded ECG

Does this sound familiar?  It’s 2 a.m. on a Saturday.  You are the lead medical provider in a 15-bed ER.  The computer reading on the 12-lead ECG states: “Non specific ST Changes”, “Diffuse T-wave changes”


We know the computer interpretation on the 12-lead ECG is notoriously flawed to say the least.  You could wait for the cardiologist to read the ECG, but by then 1-2 hours have passed.  In the setting of an acute MI (myocardial infarction), time is cardiac muscle.  You must recognize even subtle changes on the 12-lead ECG quickly.

“This (12-lead ECG) CME was very information and detailed! Great learning venue being online. Final exam definitely thought-provoking, but well worth the 30 credit hours for the price. Thanks for this intensive program.”

~ Leslie L, MD

“I am a PA in cardiology and the (12-lead ECG) course was wonderful. It cleared up a lot of questions I had about ST segment/T-wave abnormalities in the setting of RBBB, LBBB, LAFB, and LVH.   Thank you! “

~ Carlos C, PA-C

“I’m an ole’ Army guy with numerous years of experience teaching overseas and believe that everything should be broken down to the simplest terms…you have done just that with your course.”
