Course description

CONFIDENTLY INTERPRET EKG/ECGs IN A SYSTEMATIC WAY

Struggling to interpret EKGs? Looking for just the right amount of information & physiology so you remember a simple, methodical approach?

In EKG/ECG Interpretation Explained Clearly, renowned instructor Dr. Roger Seheult illustrates a streamlined, systematic way to read and interpret ECGs.

Dr. Seheult is trusted by Universities, students, and medical professionals, for his ability to illustrate key concepts so they are understood, not memorized...

... and clear understanding leads to competence and avoiding those dreaded feelings of information overload!

It has never been easier to understand EKG/ECG readings. Watch the video series now to master this crucial skill.


What you'll receive from this course:

  • An understanding of the heart's electrical activity
  • Illustrations and examples of all major abnormal ECG findings 
  • A systematic approach to spot  abnormal findings
  • Hands-on interpretation practice with 11 blank practice EKGs. Dr. Seheult will interpret these EKGs in the video so you can check your work.
  • Reinforcement of key cardiac physiology concepts
  • A clinical perspective of electrocardiogram nuances, scenarios, and rare findings
  • Quiz questions to reinforce core concepts and help you study
  • Up to 10 category 1 CME credits (see information below for access details)
  • 1 year of full unlimited access on up to 3 devices.


Yes... EKG/ECG Interpretation Explained Clearly counts toward CME & CEUs

- Looking for CME credits?  Access this course here and you can receive up to 10 hours of Category 1 CME credits (10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™).

- Roger Seheult M.D. is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider # CEP16824.  This course (accessed here on this page) is approved for 10 CE contact hours. For detailed course objectives and CE accreditation information, click here

Special thanks to James A. Mathey PA-C, who has over 10 years of experience in cardiology and electrophysiology, for his thorough review of this course.

Great review of EKG analysis. Was very easy to break into segments.

by Delilah Turner
I have learned so much from this course. I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to expand their understanding of an ECG!
by Matthew Lawson
Excellent course very thorough and presented in the logical fashion. Love the physiology that's incorporated with clinical findings
by Chris Harrison
Awesome course. Knowing almost nothing about EKG's coming into the class, I now feel like I can point out most major issues in an EKG and know what a "normal" EKG should look like. I'm very impressed with the depth and the clarity to which these subjects were explained. Definitely recommending to anyone who will listen!
by todd foster
I really loved this course
by Mohammed Salih
If i can give more than 5 stars i would do so. Excellent course, that is very clear and concise, also pretty practical. its very rare to have someone explains EKG that simple, well done!!
by shawna finding
ECGs make so much more sense now. I learned so much from this course! Thank you!!

by Dr Karnam
So well prepared and described . Students really loved the way you described all the chapters
by Piu Dey
Great Course, really helped me understand EKGs for the first time ever. It started off with the basics and fully explained the physics/vectors. It described the most common rhythms and ended with more than enough practice EKGs.
by jin park
I wasn't confident with 12 lead EKG reading. After taking this course, I expanded my knowledge and confidence. thank you!
by Laura Robbins
Really clear and concise explanation of topics to help grasp concepts without memorization. Wish I had this while I was going through school.
by vinay kapadia
One of best systemic approaches I have ever seen. Thank You, Vinay
by Diana Bruce
I am only 31% of the way through and am delighted with how simply put the concepts are and how much more sense this makes to me now!
by Sinan Khudhur
Amazing Course,What i have looked for from long time,I hope there is more than 5 stars to rate it ,This Course what medical student need to ace the ECG Reading .Simple Amazing
by Kelly Dale
Great course! I learned a lot!
by Dayna Turner
Information explained in a clear, comprehensive way. Difficult to see where the instructor was pointing when the pen tool wasn't writing. I am a visual learner and I feel as though it was difficult to follow when I could see where he was pointing to.
by Ganesh Subramaniam
Dr Roger's explanation of anatomy is simple and great! Also, how the concepts are applied for interpretation of ECG has been Very Very useful to me. Great Job!! A big fan of Medcram lectures Thanks Ganesh VP R&D - Vios Medical Bio-medical Engineering
by Karri Wingfield
I love the way you explain things. You have a gift for teaching. This is a very complicated skill to learn but with practice I feel I will be able to confidently read EKGs accurately. After taking this course, and going over the several EKG examples, I am really starting to catch on. I work in ICU and see EKGs daily so I will continue to apply the methodical approach you teach and hope to improve upon what I know and get faster. Thank you again and look forward to more courses through MedCram.com
by BRUCE STIRLING
Excellent, terrific learning experience. Offers a thorough overview of ECG interpretation, with valuable tools and pearls.
by Sanny Baffour
quizes should be ecg strips.
by Michael Hulsey
by Caroline Tremblay
Very well explained. On the other hand, there was some problem with the count of the remained courses that had to be done.. Many courses that were done were not marked as so. RESPONSE from Kyle at MedCram: Thank you for the feedback Caroline, there is a small green button near the bottom right side of the screen that says "next" ... this is how the course player keeps track of your progress... so if you click around to different videos in the menu, it may not "mark them as complete"... you can always return to a video that wasn't marked and press the next button to mark it as complete (and you'll then see a green check mark in the menu). Sorry that our course player didn't make this clear the first time around, and we'll keep working on improving it.
by Baden Patterson
Very thorough. 9.5/10. The only thing I wish he would add is a video right after he goes over rhythm that just have 4 lead rhythms strips and 10 practice strip to just memorize some rhythms the he didn't go over. I feel like I understand the concepts because he so clearly explains things. I will just need to spend more time becoming familiar with identifying rhythm strips more quickly for a Paramedic usage. Other then that, very very clear and well explained. Well worth the price!
by silvana mason
I have found this course extremely helpful, well presented, I will go over it again, because I have taken some time to complete this course I have forgotten some points, excellent.
by Jay Aguila
nice
by Mariah Cecilia Opay
The subject matter was intelligibly explained. Kudos to Dr. Seheult.
by stacey stewart
I wish I would have known about these videos before my EKG class in PA school. I would of had a better understanding instead of just memorization.
by Antonette Trapp
by Terry Braley
by Jerry Astbury
Loved the course. Clear and in-depth explanations yet concise. In addition the progression through the material carries within it enough review of previous information that it aids with retention. All that anyone will be missing is practice. However, we also receive assistance here through a clearly articulated method for approaching ECG interpretation. Looking forward to additional courses.

by Rebecca Gloria, RN
by Daniel Gavelin
by George Valdez, MD
I've been in practice 15 years, preparing for my board recertification. In the past I prepared by re-memorizing the rhythms and 'key' ekg findings. I have never truly understood so clearly, the reasoning behind every part of the EKG, and felt so comfortable and strong in approaching every line and why it all happens. Really amazing, well done. When you're done, you will feel you made a good investment. Completely worth it.
by Tracy Hamill

Just incredible
by Omar Gabriel, NP
Very helpful, provides all the essential details. Thank you.
by Daniel Rydalch, RN
Outstanding! I have been looking forward to this course being released. I have viewed and attended many EKG courses and this is by far the best! Dr. Seheult is always concise, logical and very clear with his teaching. A very skilled instructor. I hope to watch this many times for review. Thank You!!!
by Dr. Kiran Sandhu
Well organized course, though I thought some things were not mentioned on the first practice ECG (ie ST segment elevation I thought I noted). Overall, it was thorough, organized, and well-taught.
