QxMD are consistently creating excellent apps aimed squarely at the health professional and have made a few apps that appear in this article. The ECG Guide describes itself as a “critical companion,” and is listed as a core medical app by Georgetown Medical School.
There are over 200 high-quality examples of most conceivable electrocardiograms (ECGs) that fulfil the 2009 American Heart Association (AHA)/American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF)/Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) recommendations for the standardisation and interpretation of the ECG. The bulk of the content is focused bullet-pointed lists with a zoomable accompanying ECG. There is usually a brief description and differential attached, however, in-depth explanations will need to be found elsewhere.
ECG Source is another good app covering the same content, however, ECG Guide has very slick formatting that is easy to navigate. This is probably my most used app, I consistently use it a few times a week, especially on-call and in the emergency department. It’s been particularly useful at minimising those head scratching moments that I’m sure we’ve all had while reading an ECG.
