Designed as an online companion to ECGs Made Easy, 4th Edition, by Barbara Aehlert, RN, BSPA this course reinforces concepts found in the textbook with videos, animations, and interactive exercises. The course is organized to parallel the text's table of contents. Most chapters feature a "Scenario Challenge" case study with a sample rhythm strip and other relevant clinical information. Students can manipulate an on-screen cardiac ruler, (called the "ECG Analyst") to take measurements of the ECG tracing and then answer questions about the case. The ECG Analyst can also be used by students to practice measuring and identifying more than 45 additional rhythm strips. Each online chapter concludes with a summary of important concepts that will help students review. In addition, a comprehensive review of all the material—from beginning to end—challenges the student to identify 50 rhythms by examining tracings and viewing rhythms on oscilloscopes as if on a real ECG monitor. Automatically scored assessments include chapter quizzes and a final "post test."
