Welcome to the ECG Stampede Curriculum! In this course, you will cover everything from the basics to advanced subjects, getting you prepared to be an expert at electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation and triage. We've divided the course into units and while covered subjects are labelled in each unit, topics are interleaved and the course is meant to be taken as a whole. A specific topic like conduction disturbances is covered in multiple units as they relate to other connected processes such as ischemia or electrolyte abnormalities. Work your way through the units and you'll be an expert stampeder in no time. 

The Process

1. Primer

Used just to gauge your current understanding, answer these as best as you can.

2. Video

Learn with Drs. Cooper and Giordano and follow along with the course materials.

3. Practice

Take at the end of each unit to see how much you've learned!

4. Stampede

Let's put you to the test, triage a few ECG's related to the content you just covered.

Each unit starts with a primer to get a sense of your current level of understanding. Then, join Drs. Cooper and Giordano as they work their way through various ECG's in the unit's video. When you're done, there's a practice and a Stampede where you'll put your newly-gained triage skills to the test.
