This ECG Tutorial blog is the first in a series, designed for people who wish to learn something new or simply to refresh material already learned. It may be particularly useful to first responders, emergency medical technicians or student paramedics. During the course of this series we will be focusing on the basics of ECG along with discussing rhythm strips and 3 and 4 lead ECG's.
It's not going to turn you into a mega super ECG guru! But it will provide you with a good understanding of what exactly you are looking at on a rhythm strip and how that corrosponds to different actions within the heart. It is hoped that in the future we will also incorporate a 12 lead ECG section into this blog series. But thats a bit down the road yet.
OK, enough talk let's kick off.
