EKG Practice Test

This quiz contains several brief medical histories and their matching ECGs. For each
question, you should check between 0 to 4 diagnoses. If the blood pressure is not specified, it
means that it is in the normal range.
Remember: Do not use your browsers back button. The result is shown only when you
have answered every question.
Enjoy!

Inferior STEMI
Posterior STEMI
Atypical atrial flutter
Typical atrial flutter
The difference between atrial fibrillation (A-fib) and atrial flutter (A-flutter), is
clinically relevant because typical flutter can easily be treated by radiofrequency
ablation. A-fib and atypical A-flutter requires more expertise and radiofrequency
ablation has lower success rate.
Atrial flutter:
Atrial rate ca. 300 bpm (200-400 bpm) with a heart rate typically ca. 150 bpm.
1. Typical (type I) atrial flutter: saw-tooth-like waves
o Counterclockwise: negative flutter waves in II, III, aVF and positive in V1
o Clockwise: positive flutter waves in II, III, aVF and negative in V1
2. Atypical (type II) atrial flutter: doesn
