THE CONSERVATORY OF MEDICAL ARTS AND SCIENCES

XVII

EKG LIBRARY

Although many have credited the invention of the electrocardiograph as another German medical engineering achievement, the electrocardiograph was actually invented by Willem Einthoven, a Dutch physician and scientist. His device was first demonstrated in 1903, an achievement which would earn him the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1924.

The keystone to every medical practice in the world, The Electrocardiograph's presence in medicine is iconic, its position, Iron clad. All who involve themselves in the care of human beings should be well versed in the basics of this science.

Below are Electrocardiogram (also known as ECG or EKG) practice strips for Rhythm interpretation utilized by The Conservatory's instructors in all Cardiopulmonary Courses.

Remember the basics. Read the EKG the same way each time. Is there a P wave? What's the PR interval? What's the rate? How wide is the QRS Complex? Is AVR an upside down mirror image of Lead II? When calculating rates quickly, use the technique of 300/150/100/75/60/50.

The EKG strip images below can be clicked onto and enlarged. You can then move through the strips as a slide presentation, pausing at your discretion. For additional review, students can go to our affiliate, Get Body Smart/Heart Physiology.

To aid our clients and online users, we offer an online textbook and learning module. This tool allows us to present Cardio-Pulmonary Medicine as an online didactic resource and course, available at no cost to our students. The rubrics are designed as an assistant to the students we teach on campus, but this online course is also available to anyone wanting to increase their medical knowledge and competitive edge.

For you to be able to utilize the Cardiology Course materials at no cost, you must sign into We Teach College Students, and request the course. We will then add you to our roster and email your access codes within twenty-four hours.


This is a self paced programmed course. The module utilizes a large and concise text, with case studies, color illustrations, self assessment tools, and flashcards, in addition to sturdy web-links. Questions can be addressed through the course chat and email system or our Academic Questions page.

The Cardiology Library is currently under construction. When complete, it will contain 18 chapters of academics. This is a graduate level library. From cardiac dysrhythmias and congestive heart failure, to thoracic organ transplantation, it is an excellent introduction to Cardio-Pulmonary Medicine.

Below, are common EKG strips with dysrhythmias you must know to pass any EKG interpretation course. Interpretation of these rhythms with discussion of salient features, can be requested by contacting us at [email protected]
