ECG Challenge

Life in the Fastlane is an excellent online resource that has been created and maintained by a group of Australasian critical care physicians and nurses exploring the changing world of eLearning, emergency medicine, critical care and toxicology through clinical cases, fictionalized anecdotes and medical satire.

Below are links that will direct you to 12-lead ECG specific content that is housed on the Life in the Fastlane website. This website is written for a wide audience of health care practitioners.
