Intensivists And Their Course LITFL ECG library is prepared for the ones who are studying intensive care and the people who are working for departments that come under intensive care. ECG BASICS, ECG A to Z diagnosis, ECG clinical cases, ECG reference sites and books, ECG image database and Cardiology eponymous syndromes are some of the topics that you will find in this library. ECG basics deal with waves, intervals, segments and clinical interpretation of a person’s heartbeat. ECG A to Z diagnosis deals with the alphabetical approach to ECG; ECG Clinical cases is a segment where an ECG is placed in clinical context with a challenging question and answer approach that helps the ones who are opting for this course. ECG reference sites and books are the best for reference for the ones who are undergoing this course. ECG image database is a searchable database for reference ECGs. Cardiology eponymous syndrome consists of specific data related to heart and heart rate. The ECG rate has to be updated every now and then if different paper speed is used. Regular ECG rhythm is 300/number of large squares in between each consecutive R wave. Very fast rhythm’s rate is 1500/number of small squares in between each consecutive R wave and slow or irregular rhythm’s rate the number of complexes on the rhythm strip x 6; this gives the average rate over a ten-second period. There have always been incidents where we have needed the intensive care unit, be it an accident, life threatening disease or anything that is considered to be serious. Intensive care units have been structured in a manner where the equipments are for specific purposes and the people who take care of the patients are the ones who have specialized in the same genre. The doctors and nurses must clear the basic ICU course so that doctors are allowed to operate in these units and the nurses know what they have to do at what time because of which the patient doesn’t suffer any further. There are websites for these courses that offer study material through links and notes in the form of word documents, PDFs or excel sheets; one of these sites is the Life In The Fast Lane or LITFL. These sites help the ones who are pursuing medical studies and help them throughout their course, also, make sure that they don’t have any doubts left because there obviously cannot be any doubt when it comes to ICU patients. As we have known that critical situations need critical care, we should also know that having the proper heart rate in such cases is what matters the most. If a patient is struggling between life and death, the ECG is supposed to at least be close to normal for him/her to survive. Life in the Fast Lane ECG library is a free educational resource covering over hundred ECG topics relevant to emergency medicine and critical care.

All the ECGs are free to reproduce for educational purposes. High quality ECG examples or interesting cases have been contributed y them for better understanding of a particular situation.
