ECG Interpretation: The Basics

Part one of a 5 part lecture series on the basics of ECG/EKG Interpretation with Dr Theo Sklavos and cardiologist A/Prof William Wang. This lecture series is aimed primarily at medical/nursing/paramedicine students and junior trainees, but will hopefully be useful as a refresher course for those with previous experience.

  • Describe the parts of the ECG
  • Rate, rhythm, axis
