This tutorial is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Alan E. Lindsay, master teacher
of electrocardiography, friend, mentor, and colleague. Many of the excellent
ECG tracings illustrated in this learning program are from Dr. Lindsay's personal
collection of ECG treasures. For many years these ECG's have been used in
the training of medical students, nurses, housestaff physicians, cardiology
fellows, and practicing physicians in Salt Lake City, Utah as well as at many
regional and national medical meetings. It is an honor to be able to provide this
tutorial on the World Wide Web in recognition of Dr. Lindsay's great love for

sublime to the ridiculous, from simplicity to complexity, and from boring to
fascinating. It is hoped that students will be left with some of the love of
electrocardiography shared by Dr. Lindsay.
