Easy EKG: Interpreting Rhythms




What do you think about this video?

asheriko26: helped alot

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?

ronnike anderson: Wonderful video 

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

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

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

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

Ashley Zeitz: Great basic video for nursing students.

Dr. Tarek Rafei: Thank you very much. I have really enjoyed watching this video.

Dee Jones: Great Job. Thanks

ashley correll: Great job! Thank you so much. 

Mike mishaeil: thank you

Zahra Tiwana: What website are you using 

Datis Azarpazhooh: Thank you very much

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

Dee: you da man.

MrSTANDup92: Great video man. Thanks a LOT!

hans vantrigt: Very helpful! Thank you so much.

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: 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? 

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

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.

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

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! :)

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.

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

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!!!

brettq14: on a fib prolly shoulda mentioned "irregular irregularity" as the hallmark, varying distances from R-R and no real pattern

Holly Henderson: Great video. Thank you!

Jessica Fleming: Great Video I love it. I have a test on EKGs this week. & you did a better job on explaining it than the professor. THANKYOU!

Mike T: *correction: 50, 40, 35. Anything under 35 bpm..it kinda all the same at that point so at 35 is where the box trick ends.

lisa70luuhoo: Great info! Helps alot, thanks!

Linda C: You can calculate the atrial rate by counting the number of P waves you see in a 6 second strip and multiplying that by 10. (A 6 second strip includes 30 boxes) To get your ventricular rate you would do the same except you count the number of QRS complexes in the 6 second strip. Hope this helps.

cjsilverio24: Thank you..really helpful

002gloria: Nice!!i learned alot
