EasyECG2.0 is the second generation of our
ECG interpretation app that I developed after
a handful of
paramedic students who rode with me had difficulty interpreting basic
EKG rhythms. I realized that some paramedic programs are teaching “ECG
recognition” as opposed to “ECG interpretation”. For that reason, I
created EasyECG to reinforce the correct sequence of steps to interpret
an ECG rhythm.I was taught to interpret EEG rhythms in a stepwise
EasyECG is actually written in such a manner that anyone - even someone with no ECG training whatsoever - can interpret a rhythm, however it is intended as a LEARNING TOOL ONLY, and it is no substitute for proper training. I do not endorse it for use in diagnosing and/or treating a patient, and if you use it for that purpose, you are on your own!
DIRECTIONS: Examine the Lead 2 tracing of a patient’s ECG, and answer questions in the app based on what is seen on the patient’s ECG printout. In some cases, a sample ECG complex with the characteristic in question highlighted in green will appear under the question to clarify what is being asked. All questions have an info button if additional clarification is needed, and the info button on the final rhythm determination gives a description of what is occurring in the electrical conduction system of the heart to cause that rhythm. A definitions list is accessible from the main menu that explains the physiology behind each rhythm included and explains what is occurring in the heart with each wave in an ECG tracing. Not every screen/question contains an image; only questions for which a visual reference is necessary have questions.
