Your institutional user account gives you and your trainees complete access to a
number of our services, including the ECG Reading Room, ECG Tracker, High-Yield ECGs, and
ECG Criteria for Common Abnormalities.
ECG Reading Room. The ECG Reading Room is currently comprised of a database of 531
unique electrocardiograms (ECGs) with more tracings being added monthly. We are the largest online resource available for
ECG education. Once your trainees complete all of the ECGs in our database, the electrocardiograms will continuously recycle, enabling your trainees to interpret thousands of tracings over years of training. Your trainees will answer each ECG using a scoresheet similar
to that used for the American Board of Internal Medicine Cardiovascular
Disease exam, making this service invaluable to medicine residents and
cardiovascular fellows. After each ECG is coded, immediate feedback is provided
from a panel of ECG experts regarding the accuracy of the diagnoses, and a score is
awarded to the trainee. The expert panel also provides additional teaching points
specific to the ECG completed.
Documenting your institution's electrocardiogram training and competency in ECG interpretation for the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) has never been easier. (Currently, the ACGME requires
cardiovascular fellows to have formal instruction, clinical experience, and
demonstrate competence in the interpretation of a minimum of 3500
electrocardiograms.) The ECG Tracker
enables you to keep a detailed record of your trainees utilization of this service. You can track trainee progress in
interpretation accuracy, as well as see the types of ECGs that appear to cause
the most confusion for your trainees.
This concise database is a supplement to the more extensive ECG Reading Room. Although ECGsource is in no way affiliated with any medical testing organization, ECGsource has years of experience in medical exam preparation and has compiled a high-yield database of the types of ECGs that may commonly be tested. These high-yield electrocardiograms are meant to assist you in a last minute review prior to taking standardized medical examinations.
ECG Videos. Over 45 minutes of electrocardiogram tutorial videos are now available. These videos provide an overview of electrocardiogram basics and certain commonly seen diagnoses, including the determination of the rate, rhythm, and axis, as well as understanding the conduction system, the limb and precordial leads, bundle branch blocks, left ventricular hypertrophy, and more.
ECG Criteria for Common Abnormalities. This compilation of
standard criteria for electrocardiogram abnormalities is a perfect resource
for both the novice and expert in ECG interpretation to use as a quick reference.
CathSource. This high-yield database of coronary angiograms, ventriculograms, and aortograms has been developed to assist you in the recognition of cardiovascular pathology in the catheterization lab. Specific cases with associated cardiac images are presented in question format and the user has the opportunity to answer each case using a scoresheet similar to that used for the imaging section of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Cardiovascular Disease Board Exam. There is no better resource available to simulate the imaging section of the Cardiovascular Disease Board Exam than CathSource.
Designed for both specialists and trainees in the field of cardiovascular disease, this searchable index of cardiac catheterization and angiography topics includes educational images and videos in the following categories: Normal Coronary Anatomy, Anomalous Coronary Arteries, Coronary Artery Aneurysms, Standard Views of Angiography, Coarctation of the Aorta, Femoral Artery Access for Angiography, Radial Artery Access for Angiography, Fractional Flow Reserve (FFR), Hemodynamics: Intracardiac Pressures, Hemodynamics: Intracardiac Waveforms, Hemodynamics: Cardiac Output, Hemodynamics: Intracardiac Shunts, Hemodynamics: Aortic Stenosis, Hemodynamcis: Aortic Regurgitation, Hemodynamics: Mitral Stenosis, Hemodynamcis: Mitral Regurgitation, and Hemodynamcis: Constriction vs. Restriction.
EchoSource. This high-yield database of transthoracic and
transesophageal echocardiograms will assist you in the recognition of cardiovascular
pathology in the echo lab.
Specific cases with associated echo images are presented in question format and the
user has the opportunity to answer each case using a scoresheet similar to that used for
the imaging section of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Cardiovascular
Disease Board Exam.
There is no better resource available to simulate the echo imaging section of the Cardiovascular Disease Board Exam
