Understand heart blocks and EKG / ECG interpretation with expert medical instructor Dr. Seheult. This is a selected video of the MedCram.com EKG / ECG course: http://www.medcram.com/courses/ekg-ecg-interpretation-explained-clearly
Learn the skills to confidently interpret EKGs and EKG rhythms in a systematic way, including:
- The physiology of the heart
- EKG leads and vectors
- Leads and EKG paper
- The ECG tracing
- EKG waves, complexes, and intervals (p waves, QRS complexes, PR interval etc.)
- Axis on EKG and precordial leads
- The autonomic nervous system and the heart
- Heart rate and automaticity on the ECG
- The R to R interval
- Rhythm, arrhythmias, and escape rhythms,
- Premature beats and pauses on EKG
- Bigeminy, trigeminy, and tachyarrhythmias
- V-tach and torsades de points
- Atrial and ventricular flutter
- Atrial fibrillation and ventricular fibrillation on ECG
- Heart blocks and escape rhythms (1st, 2nd, and 3rd degree heart block)
- Bundle branch blocks, hemiblocks, and fascicular blocks
- Hypertrophy (LVH) and atrial enlargement
- COPD, PE, Hyperkalemia, Digoxin and the EKG
- How to systematically read an EKG (and what a normal ECG looks like)
- Many practice EKG (that Dr. Seheult interprets step by step)
- EKG quizzes follow each video.
Dr. Seheult is famous for his ability to explain and illustrate key concepts with just enough detail so they are understood, not memorized... You won't become overburdened with too much EKG information too quickly.
Dr. Seheult will be your step by step mentor: reinforcing key cardiac physiology, explaining abnormal findings and how they develop in the first place, the appearance of a normal EKG, and a clinical perspective of EKG nuances, scenarios, and rare findings.

Internal medicine videos on Oxygen Hemoglobin Dissociation Curve and Medical Acid Base. A growing library on critical care topics such as Shock, Diabetic Ketoacidosis (DKA), and Mechanical Ventilation. Cardiology videos on Hypertension, ECG / EKG interpretation (electrocardiograms), and heart failure. VQ Mismatch and Hyponatremia lectures have been popular among medical students. The Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs) videos and Ventilator associated pneumonia bundles and lectures have been particularly popular with RTs. NPs and PAs have given great feedback on Pneumonia Treatment and Liver Function Tests among many others. Many nursing students have found the Asthma and shock lectures very helpful.
