2. Basic ECG Interpretation (W1)

Basic ECG Interpretation - ECG Fundamentals Basic ECG Interpretation - ECG Criteria
Basic ECG Interpretation - Basic Cardiac Rhythms (W1)

Although this material is covered in the arrhythmia section of this course, this video gives a great summary of normal and abnormal cardiac rhythms in a single, short video.

Basic ECG Interpretation - Left and Right Atrial Abnormality (W1)

This video teaches a quick and easy way to identify left and right atrial abnormality.

Basic ECG Interpretation - Left and Right Ventricular Hypertrophy (W1)

This chapter teaches how to identify left and right ventricular hypertrophy on the ECG. It also describes secondary ST and T wave changes that might accompany these conditions.

Basic ECG Interpretation - Bundle Branch Blocks, Conduction Delays, and Fascicular Blocks (W1)

This video teaches how to identify left and right bundle branch blocks, non-specific intraventricular conduction delays, and left anterior- and left posterior-fascicular blocks.

Basic ECG Interpretation - Myocardial Ischemia and Infarction (W1)

This important lesson shows how to identify myocardial ischemia and myocardial infarctions. It shows how to diagnose an acute myocardial infarction and then goes through the evolutionary ST and T changes that occur over time. You'll learn to recognize acute, recent, age-undetermined, and old myocardial infarctions on the ECG.

Basic ECG Interpretation - ST and T Wave Changes (W1)

This lesson teaches the differences between primary ST and T wave changes, as seen in ischemia, from secondary ST and T wave changes, as seen in conditions like left ventricular hypertrophy.

Basic ECG Interpretation - Low QRS Voltage (W1)

This video teaches you to recognize low QRS voltage and then gives you a brief differential diagnosis of urgent/emergent conditions that cause low QRS voltage. This is important to recognize since some of the causes of low voltage are life-threatening and need immediate attention.

Basic ECG Interpretation - ECG Changes From Electrolyte Abnormalities (W1)

Informative and easy to understand!

I had the pleasure of being lectured about electrocardiogram interpretation by Dr. Siegal during my cardiology training. Dr. Siegal captured these lectures in videos for self-education and training. They are informative and easy to understand in a field where ECG interpretations can be intimidating. I wish I had these videos during my medical school and training years.

Great visual examples

The videos are great for people who are visual and audio learners. They go at a pace that is easy to understand and there are good visual examples.

Passed Boards thanks to your course

Thank you for your outstanding [Point of Care Echo] course. It enabled me to pass my Critical Care Boards. I think it is applicable to any physician who might uses echo and think point of care echo will be the standard in the future. Before taking my recertification boards, I had never seen an echo, but after 2 hours with your course, I had no problem recognizing everything. Your course is ahead of its time. I recommend your course and teaching to anyone.
