Groups of Signs
- Arrest Rhythms:
- Fibrillation and flutter:
This ECG is from a woman in her 60s who presented in acute heart failure with dyspnoea and intermittent chest discomfort.
This ECG shows atrial fibrillation, LVH and diffuse ST-T changes.
This ECG is from a patient in their 50s who presented unconscious and tachycardic after a seizure.
This ECG shows alternating wide and narrow complex tachycardias at the same rate, likely due to aberrancy.
This ECG is from a patient who presented after a PEA arrest with ROSC after intubation and chest compressions.
This ECG shows irregular, slow, wide complex rhythm with peaked T waves due to hyperkalemia.
This ECG is from a young man who presented shortly after a 45 min episode of palpitations, shortness of breath, chest pressure and presyncope. He was an athlete.
This ECG shows marked sinus bradycardia with AV dissociation by default (not AV block) with junctional escape beats.
This ECG is from a woman in her 60s who presented from a nursing home with altered mental status, hypotension, hypoxia and bradycardia.
This ECG shows an irregular rhythm due to second degree AV block with wide QRS and peaked T waves. The cause was hyperkalemia.
This ECG is from a man in his 40s who had a cardiac arrest out of hospital. He regained cardiac output on the way to the Emergency Department.
Where did they come from?
These ECGs were collected from Free Open Access Medical Education (#FOAMed) blogs, with the permission of their authors. You can find out more about each ECG's source by clicking on it.
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.
