The electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the most versatile and identifiable tools used in medicine. Earning its inventor, Willem Einthoven, a Nobel Prize, the ECG continues to be used in almost all hospitals and healthcare centers in the world, in large part due to its diagnostic yield for a multitude of conditions, cost-effectiveness, and speed. It’s a must for every clinician to become proficient at interpreting ECG tracings.
In this course, the student will be instructed on how to read and interpret an ECG systematically, using clinical cases as examples of the most characteristic findings of different conditions.
For optimal understanding, the student should be familiar with the anatomy of the heart, with special emphasis on coronary circulation and the conduction system, and cardiac physiology, with special attention to the cardiac cycle and membrane potential.
Great!!! Super understandable. Precise and straight to the point. Doctor Alpert is great
There were some points that I didn’t find easy to understand such as cardiac axis The doctor in some parts was explaining things that weren’t clear on the slides so I was confused
Absolutely fantastic to explain the very basics of the cardiac cycle reflected in the ECG. THANK YOU!
The presenter is very qualified. The choice and the arrangement of the topics, and the delivery of the presentation were excellent
