NCLEX Review: EKG Readings

An Electrocardiogram, also known as an ECG or EKG, is a graphic representation of the electrical activity going on within the heart. Join us in this NCLEX exam video as we talk about how an Electrocardiogram is performed, telemetry and EKG tracings. For your NCLEX review, it is important to understand the EKG breakdown on graph paper. Watch as we take a look at the breakdown of the phases on an EKG tracing, explaining the P-wave, the P-R Interval, the QRS Complex, the S-T Segment, the T-Wave, the Q-T Interval, and the U-Wave. We will then go over the eight steps to interpreting an EKG.
