  1. Position the patient at 45°
  2. Identify the fourth intercostal space (starting at the sternal angle)
  3. ECG electrode positions on the chest wall.
  4. Attach V1.
  5. Attach V2.
  6. Attach V4.
  7. Attach V3.
  8. Attach V5.

What is EKG practice test?

An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is a test used to detect heart problems and monitor heart health. An EKG practice test will help you prepare for the rhythms you will encounter during the real test and gain experience with identifying specific EKG strips.

What are the steps to perform an ECG?

Simple steps for the correct placement of electrodes for a 12 lead ECG/EKG:

  1. Prepare the skin.
  2. Find and mark the placements for the electrodes:
  3. First, identify V1 and V2.
  4. Next, find and mark V3 – V6.
  5. Apply electrodes to the chest at V1 – V6.
  6. Connect wires from V1 to V6 to the recording device.
  7. Apply limb leads.

How do you remember the 12-lead placement?

If you’re using AHA’s system, use this mnemonic to easily recall limb electrode placement:

  1. smoke over fire (black lead above the red lead)
  2. snow over grass (white lead above the green lead)

What are the 5 leads?

5-lead ECG Placement

  • White is on the right side, just below the clavicle (midway)
  • Black is on the left side just below the clavicle.
  • Brown is in the 4th intercoastal space, just to the right of the sternum.
  • Green is on the right on the lower edge of the rib cage.
  • Red is on the left of the lower edge of the rib cage.

Where do 5 leads go for ECG?

Five-lead system Place the right leg (RL) electrode below the level of the lowest rib on the right abdominal area. Place the left leg (LL) electrode below the level of the lowest rib on the left abdominal area. Place the chest (C) electrode in the fourth intercostal space to the right of the sternum for V1.

What is the best way to learn EKG?

The EKG practice drills provide a fast and interactive method for learning EKGs. Users are asked to identify the arrhythmia category. Immediate feedback is available after answering a multiple choice question. Ideal for quick practice sessions using smartphones. Our quizzes present 25 tracings for interpretation.

What are the geeky medics OSCE flashcards?

These cards have been created to help you both develop and refine your clinical skills.

How are EKG’s interpreted?

EKGs are interpreted by medical professionals to understand the following: 1 Heart rate. 2 Heartbeat regularity. 3 Strength and timing of the electrical signals. 4 Any possible abnormal conditions.
