Introduction to ECGs
These are my notes from my 3-hour 'Introduction to ECGs' Lecture. It involves some basic physiology surrounding myocytes and the contraction the heart, electrolytes and why they are applicable. It then explains depolarisation and repolarisation of the heart and the conduction system of the heart. It then details how to actually read ECG paper and the waves. Further, it explains how and where to place ECG leads and some theory behind this also. At the end is notes on how to recognise different ECG rhythms.
