What is a 12-Lead ECG and what information does it provide?
How do I arrange the strips when mounting an ECG?
What types of cardiac waves appear on an ECG?
How do I use the ECG grid to measure cardiac waves?

If so, this course is for you.

Don't Worry. This course is not about learning the ENTIRE subject of electrocardiography. Instead, this course targets one specific skill that many beginning students find challenging—using an ECG grid to measure cardiac waveforms.

What You’ll Learn

Discover the new skills you’ll unlock after completing this course.


ECG Essentials

You will discover the 12-lead ECG layout and learn how cardiac conduction relates to the specific waves you see on an ECG.

ECG Grid

You will learn the values of the small and large boxes on an ECG grid and how they're used to measure cardiac waves.

Cardiac Wave Measurements

You will analyze ECGs and measure the height, amplitude, width, and duration of P waves, T waves, PR and QT intervals, and the QRS complex.
