ECG Audio Pearl


DEAR READER: To master ECG interpretation clearly requires seeing the tracing you are analyzing — but important ECG concepts are sometimes best conveyed by a brief Audio message. This is the purpose of me adding this new feature to my ECG Blog posts — in which I'll be adding brief commentary on various PEARLS to facilitate understanding. I will also periodically add selected ECG Video Pearls.
  • For easy reference — I'll maintain a list of my Audio & Video Pearls below
  • For comments or questions: WRITE ME at
