Alraies, Chadi, MD, Alraiyes, Abdulhamid MD, Christie, Richard MD. The study evaluated the ability of internal medicine residents to interpret a variety of electrocardiograms and rhythm strips and prove there is improvement in their skillsafter providing access to an electrocardiogram (ECG) teaching tool.

During my rotation in Cardiology department, I was exposed to hugenumber of ECG with wide spectrum of electrocardiogram changes. I took this chanceand stared collecting the most common and interesting ECGs'. 65 ECGs' were collectedand it is not a big number but I believe it covers most of the cardiac abnormalities theinternal medicine resident exposes to during his/her training. Under each ECG, a shortclinical vignette presenting the real clinical scenario. Each ECG followed by the sameECG with answer at the bottom. This project was mentored by Dr. Michael Koch ourstaff cardiologist and Dr. Richard Christie our program director. The book is called
