An electrocardiogram (ECG) is likely the first thing your healthcare provider will conduct if you’re experiencing cardiac issues. Worldwide, physicians conduct more than 40 million ECGs each year; in fact, the basic 12-lead ECG is essential in the diagnosis of many types of cardiac conditions.
But what if the leads are inaccurately placed or the results are misinterpreted? Proper training is essential in preventing diagnostic delays and patient recalls, yet there are few all-in-one solutions that teach students how to:
– Properly place leads
– Recognize common errors
– Prevent errors from happening in the first place
That’s why we’re excited to announce an easy-to-use ECG Simulator. It combines hardware, software and curriculum to help your students develop targeted healthcare skills.
You can use our ECG Simulator to:
1 – Give students practice palpating for the correct intercostal spaces in the rib cage (instead of looking at an image) for correct lead placement
2 – Teach students how to read 3-, 4-, 5- and 12-lead rhythms (and how to recognize those rhythms on screen and on paper)
3 – Help students understand how to prevent commonly read errors
4 – Teach a 2-hour unit on ECGs, ECG interpretation and common arrhythmia using the included curriculum, workbooks, flashcards and assessment materials
5 – Prepare students for Domains 2 and 3 of the Certified EKG Technician Exam
Bonus: Our ECG Simulator is ready to use upon delivery; simply connect a cable and plug it in. No installation or setup is needed.
With the right training, nursing and EMT students can learn how to place leads and recognize and prevent errors – and most importantly, prepare for situations they’ll encounter in the real world.
