Question EKG strips


I'm a 2nd tier medic student and right now we're working on cardiology. I would like to find additional resources for learning or practicing interpreting strips. Does anyone know of maybe any websites that might have practice strips and answers or any books that would help me?

Any medical school's bookstore should have a bunch of books of practice strips.

My suggestion is to enroll and attend a in-depth anatomy and physiology course. Afterwards, you will understand cardiac much better.

There are very good books out there. One I highly recommend that is even used in most medical schools is Dubbin's cardiology.

Good luck in your studies..

If you can find a copy of Nancy Caroline's book Emergency Care In The Streets. It was a Text we used for my EMT-ST class. I has a great explination of ECG strips.

We have about 170 cardiac strip interpretation questions written for 100 different cardiac strips. I would be happy to give you a copy of just the strips if you would like them for research and studying. On our practice test site they would obviously come with answer choices and rationale to explain each one. Let me know

I'm probably posting out of my depth here, but I ran across something interesting a while back called ECGSim. You can play around with a "virtual heart" and see how it affects the trace.

http://www.ecgsim.org/

I installed it and played with it, but have absolutely no clue what any of it means.
