EKG Lessons. A basic EKG course is available using the link below. Essential ECG features are explained along with step-by-step analysis techniques. This includes rhythm evaluation, determining heart rate and assessing multiple components of the EKG waveform. Cardiac rhythm strip exercises provide interactive learning reinforcement. EKG Strips. Cardiac Rhythm Strips and EKG Overview. Study of a patient's EKG may indicate normal or abnormal conditions. Abnormal rhythms are called arrhythmia or sometimes, dysrhythmia. Arrhythmia is an abnormally slow or fast heart rate or an irregular cardiac rhythm.

However, I wanted to point out that the example EKG strips that you use as examples are not a full 6 seconds, so when trying to look at the example and interpret, it is pretty confusing, especially with the bradycardia and tachycardia examples. It would be nice if she explained that 30 big boxes = 6 seconds and if the samples were long enough. Interpreting EKG Rhythm Strips Step 1 – Heart Rate Methods to determine heart rate The 6 second method Denotes a 6 second interval on EKG strip Strip is marked by 3 or 6 second tick marks on the top or bottom of the graph paper Count the number of QRS complexes occurring within the 6 second interval.
