ECG or EKG, Elektrokardiogramm or электрокардиограмма - No matter what you call it you need to know at least ECG basics. Medical and nursing students, doctors and ambulance workers, nurses, paramedics and therapists can benefit from taking a quick look at the patient’s ECG, telemetry or Holter heart monitor. Patients often want to know what ECG test is.
There are countless books, study guides and web pages to help developing the ECG interpretation skill. And yet we often find it challenging to recall the books ‘ pages and apply the rules from those books when holding an actual cardiogram in our hands. We marvel the skill of our senior colleagues who seem to be able to take just a quick look at the monitor to confirm a serious arrhythmia or signs of a heart attack. To achieve that level of ECG mastery we need hours and hours of time, dozens of ECG recordings and lots of experience. This seems like a daunting task that we are not looking forward too. Yet we enjoy playing games on our smartphones and tablets, easily remembering game rules and layouts.
So let’s put it together, game, fun and learning! Here it comes, ECG Race, our first edu-game!
We would like to offer our games for free, and to achieve that "free"dom they will be ad supported. You don't have to, but If you clicked on any of our sponsor ads - thank you!
