An electrocardiogram, or ECG, is likely the first thing healthcare providers conduct if a patient is experiencing cardiac issues. But if the leads are inaccurately placed or the results are misinterpreted, lives can be affected. Realityworks’ ECG Simulator is an all-in-one solution for proper ECG training; it lets students practice placing ECG/EKG leads on the body through realistic rib palpation, and practice reading and recognizing common rhythms. The simulator includes a tablet, workbooks and flashcards as well as comprehensive curriculum.
