Easy EKG: Interpreting Rhythms




What do you think about this video?

Jodi Beydoun: There are a few fellow students of mine that are seriously struggling through interpreting EKG. I have watched a few of your videos and feel they will be a big help for them. Thanks for taking the time to make these videos. Are you a med student?

Renata Cimova: Hi, and thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to explain! I am not a medical student, but I am someone who likes to learn a lot so I self teach myself. Can you possibly explain the "normal" heart rhythms of someone with Friedreich's Ataxia? What about Cardiomyopathy (dilated, hypertrophic, and restrictive)? Thank you so much.

Rosalinda Perez: Thanks a million! You are a great medical student that takes time to develop an online super video on this difficult topic. However, since I'd been watching it, I'd feel more confident to take the test to pass the ACLS exam!!

Adriana O: thank you ! i was so lost at the beginning now im slowly getting it. 

jiyoung hwang: Thank you so much 

gummywormz: thank you! such knowledge!

Silvia S: whats the name of the software you are using?

Angela QueenIfrica: Appreciate these lessons!.Thanks! 

ronnike anderson: Wonderful video 

Angelica Zeledon: loved it ! thank you so much !!!!

Quainterri Shockley: I really appreciate this lesson,Because I am learning about this in my clinical ll procedure class.

Dee Jones: Great Job. Thanks

Ashley Zeitz: Great basic video for nursing students.

stephanie pak: Awesome job! Thank you for this video! :)

Lex: That clarified a lot! Thanks so much. Can you please do one with the drugs corresponding to the associated arrhythmia?

Deljinder Singh: very good ...it helped me alots thanks

MrSTANDup92: Also, can anyone help me, in the illustration of 3rd degree AV block, at about 12:05, there appears to be no obvious Q wave and widening of the S wave with no T wave seeming to be present. Can anyone tell the significance of these? 

Zahra Tiwana: What website are you using 

Coco Delgado: Great help to learned the rhythms. Will appreciate if we can have a video about cardiac cycle, blood flow, output.... Thanks!!

Datis Azarpazhooh: Thank you very much

ashley correll: Great job! Thank you so much. 

Dee: you da man.

hans vantrigt: Very helpful! Thank you so much.

mattie thompson: VERY GOOD VIDEO AND U DID A VERY JOB THANK U

julieta12: Super helpful!!! Thanks sooooo very much

capitalritz1: Thank you so much for doing this! It has been invaluable to me. I appreciate it because I have to take ACLS soon.

MrSTANDup92: Great video man. Thanks a LOT!

erykahjackson: Hey guys, I am not getting the counting of the squares.. I probably sound really dumb but you say each box is "300" and then say 150, 100, 75.. I dont understand this counting? Can someone please explain.

Raul Caballero: Great job breaking it down.... Thansk for taking the time

Mª Guimarães: OMG ! Thank u so much ! I wish my classes were like your videos !:D

sweetbabyea1: great video. thks

Maylin Perez: Great! Thanks.

Elena Escobal: I'm a registered nurse and I just found this app called ACLSMED super helpful!! It has all ecg rhythms, clinical significance, causes, treatments, etc. A must have for healthcare professionals and medical and nursing students!!! It is available in androids and iphone. Just my two cents! :)

sliderulelover: There is an easier way to calculate the heart rate: 1. Count the number of large squares between successive R peaks. 2. Divide 300 by this number of squares. So for example using your streaming ECG, there are approximately 4.2 squares between successive R peaks. 300 divided by 4.2 = 71..4 beats per minute. This agrees with the 72 beats per minute shown.

MrSTANDup92: Also what is the name of the software you used to get these ECG rhythms? 

Gwen Raynor: okay i know that but you have not show or told me how to figure it out for myself. Need it plan and simple...

timmons2003: Where can I get this software that you are using in the video?

anneliese garrison: Gwen I normally do not do this but click on my profile and go to my EKG video I think this will help you with the counting and how to figure it out. Pardon my appearance CobalGuy1988

EasyEKG: Hi Raphidae, thanks for watching this video. As you know, a PVC is a spontaneous contraction of the ventricles that randomly occurs in both patients with normal and diseased hearts. Everyone will experience a PVC at some point in their life, and while you are correct in stating that these are benign, repeated PVC's (as seen in this video) are pathological. In fact, having 3 or more IN A ROW qualifies as Ventricular Tachycardia and needs to be treated immediately.

Shannon V: Great video! Thank you

Angelina Lomova: Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule. Your videos are super helpful. Is that a simulation program that you are using for the tutorial or is that some practice website? I would love to have that for my practice. Thanks a lot!!!!!

MultiAnita12345: Thank you. You explained it all extremely well, best ECG explanation I ever had.

Gwen Raynor: hope someone will get back to me soon on this matter. I'm trying to get help with atria rate and how you get some of these rates,i get the counting down. 300,150 and on and on. But how do you get the how numbers like 332. That I not getting.I need help with this...So help me please....

Ricardo Garcia: thanks!! awesome!!!!!!!!

Mohammed Kamal: I usually do not leave comments, but you are awesome man, thank you :)

EasyEKG: Hi Justin. As seen in this video, Atrial Flutter looks like a sawtooth wave and will have an atrial rate of around 300. A 2nd degree heart block has two types, type 1 and type 2. Type 1 is where the PR interval gets longer and longer until there is no QRS. Type 2 is where the QRS randomly drops. Type 2 is the worst because you never know when you are not going to have a QRS.

ramborox1983: Thank you so much for sharing! I am a newly graduated nurse and ECGs were always a little difficult for me to grasp. Do you have a another video explaining the medical interventions/ treatments most associated with these rhythms?

Tasari: thanks this was very helpful!!!
