Sharpen your 12-Lead ECG interpretation skills
We don’t need to tell you that being quick and right is crucial for diagnosing and treating a patient with a possible STEMI. You live this need every day. The Limmer 12-Lead ECG Challenge study tool can help you improve your 12-Lead ECG interpretation expertise while increasing your insight and confidence level.
The 12-Lead ECG Challenge was developed by Tom Bouthillet, electrocardiography expert and popular ECG blogger (EMS 12-Lead). With this mobile and web-based app, you’ll review a wide variety of cardiac pathologies, including acute STEMI, STEMI mimics, electrolyte imbalances and others. If you’re responsible for cath lab activation, the 12-Lead ECG Challenge app is ideal for honing your skills and teaching you how to prevent false activation.
Highlights of the 12-Lead ECG Challenge app
- Review 150 clinically obtained, field and hospital 12-lead ECGs.
- Explore strips that are presented with real patient complaint scenarios.
- Expand and move ECGs for easy viewing on smart phones and tablets as well as on your computer.
- Receive detailed rationale answers that include the diagnosis and a graphical reference showing key points on the ECG.
- Choose 5, 10 or 20 strips at a time; exclude strips you’ve already mastered.
- View acute STEMI, STEMI mimics, cath lab activation recommendations, electrolyte imbalances, and other cardiac and atypical presentations and anginal equivalents.
