ECG Interpretation Video Lectures

5 part lecture series on 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 the more experienced.

1. The Basics

In this first video we walk you through every aspect of the basics of the ECG including:

  • Describe the parts of the ECG
  • Rate, rhythm, axis
  • P wave, PR interval, QRS complex, ST-segment, T wave, QT interval
  • Identify the features of a normal ECG
2. Myocardial ischaemia and infarction
  • Identify the signs of myocardial ischaemia on the ECG.
  • Identify which region of myocardium is ischaemic.
  • Identify posterior infarction, right ventricular infarction, ischaemia in paced rhythms and LBBB.

3. Conduction disease
  • Identify AV nodal block, bundle branch and fascicular blocks.
  • Identify escape rhythms and their origin.
4. Tachyarrhythmias

Identify the common types of tachycardia. Split into wide vs narrow complex.

5. Other cardiac conditions
  • Hyperkalemia, hypokalemia
  • Pericarditis, pericardial effusion
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Long QT syndrome
  • Identify escape rhythms and their origin.
