What comes with the app on the tablet?

  • The app includes a library of 16 default practice and assessment rhythms to improve ECG skills and assess students’ knowledge. The rhythms include: Asystole, Atrial Fibrillation, Atrial Flutter, Bradycardia, First Degree Heart Block, Left Bundle Branch Block, Normal Sinus Rhythm, Premature Atrial Contractions, Premature Ventricular Contractions, Right Bundle Branch Block, Second Degree Heart Block, Supraventricular Tachycardia, Tachycardia, Third Degree Heart Block, Ventricular Fibrillation and Ventricular Tachycardia

Can the instructor customize the assessments?

  • Yes! The instructor can choose from a variety of lead placement scenarios, thus creating a variety of assessment options to test students’ skills

What languages are available in the app?

  • The tablet display language options include English and Spanish

How do you know if the lead is placed correctly or incorrectly?
