    Jamie – I finally got a chance to listen to this podcast, and have some info on web-based ECG learning.

    One that I just found & started using is http://ecg.bidmc.harvard.edu/maven/mavenmain.asp

    It’s fairly advanced, but a great tool for those already familiar with reading ECG’s.

    There’s another one called Twelve Lead Dx, but I’m not sure it’s still available on the web. I have it loaded on one of our work computers, and I’ll take a look & see if I can send it via e-mail.

    One thing to remember about Coumadin is that it should elevate your level of suspicion for hidden trauma, especially in ground level falls with head injuries.

    Great job, as usual.
