This ECG is from a man in his 30s who presented with non-radiating substernal chest pain. He did not have any known medical comorbidities and did not take any medications. On arrival to the Emergency Department he was hypertensive and bradycardic, but alert and ambulatory. Whilst in the ED he had an episode of ventricular fibrillation, was resuscitated and was sent to the cath lab - but his coronary arteries were clear.

This ECG Archive is an academic, non-commercial #FOAMed project aiming to crowdsource a free open access database of ECGs and signs. If you include your personal details such as your name you will be attributed for your contribution, unless you tell us that you don't want this to happen. Personal contact details such as email addresses will not be published but may be used to email you in reply. Full project details and participant information available here.
This is a library of 2409 free, open access, re-usable ECGs from across the web.

Where did they come from?

These ECGs were collected from Free Open Access Medical Education (#FOAMed) blogs, with the permission of their authors.

Why are they here?

This is an experiment in digital curation. The idea is to collect resources to increase awareness and accessibility. Over time, more ECGs in the collection will be tagged to make it easier to find them and reused in new interactive quizzes.

How can I use these ECGs?

You can use these ECGs for your own learning, teaching or research - as long as you abide by the terms of each ECG's copyright licence as stipulated by the original author.
