Tips on easy ways to learn telemetry


Hello All, 

A friend of mine is in nursing school preparing for a telemetry test in a few weeks. I am not that great at identifying tele strips. I am an looking for advice on easy ways to identify strips that I can share.

For number 7 I was torn between SVT and Atrial tachycardia. For 4.) junctional Rhthym and 5.) Idioventricular

However I feel like I could be wrong and I do not want to steer any in the wrong direction. Can you identify the strips.
