How Well the Medical Residents Understand EKG/ECG — the answer is…they have no clue

September 6, 2012

There is still big confusion about the name of this piece of paper. Some authors call it EKG (the German spelling), some ECG.  I have seen 5 different cardiologist (just kidding, only 3) reading an EKG in 5 different ways. From my observation the medical residents, attending physician, and specialists are quite puzzled with sometimes easy to read EKG. So, I decided that it could be helpful to make a updated list on the best EKG sources including basics, mnemonics, cases, and more complicated strips.
