Forgive me if this topic has already been posted, I am pretty new around here so I have missed a lot. I had a question for anyone who has been through this bit of work in the course -- we were presented with all our EKG information today for a test we are having on Monday (8/27) and I am SO overwhelmed!!

Does anyone have any good websites or study suggestions? I have to get this covered and all my other objectives before Monday and I am really starting to panic.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!!

this website has a very basic explanations about the ekg and diffierent arrhythmias along with some quizzes to practice with:

and, this link is a newer one that i finally found recently after losing track of. i don't think it's posted on the critical care forums. it is a online companion web site for a canadian book on ecg interpretation. it has flashcards and samples of the various rhythms you can view:

Thanks, Daytonite. Yes, both links are found in the sticky thread. (I believe I got them from you in the past).

I found this incredibly informative! It takes you from basic cardiac rhythms to comlex.

There's also a very useful tutorial and quiz section.

HTH! Good luck! :)
