The 12-Lead ECG Challenge app presents a wide variety of cardiac pathologies including a special emphasis on acute STEMI and the STEMI mimics, electrolyte imbalances and others. If you are responsible for cath lab activation, this program is ideal for honing skills and preventing false activation.
Each case begins with the patient complaint and the actual field or hospital 12-lead ECG. You will be able to examine each 12-lead and come to a diagnostic conclusion. ECGs are expandable and movable for easy viewing on phones, computers or tablets. After choosing “answer” you will see a detailed analysis of the strip – many times with highlights graphically superimposed over the strip itself to show areas of interest.
The 12-Lead ECG challenge allows you to choose 5, 10 or 20 strips at a time as well as a feature allowing you to exclude strips you have already mastered from the program.
• Phone or tablet- no problem! ECGs expand and move on your screen for easy viewing.
• 150 high-quality 12-lead ECGs.
• Strips are presented with the actual patient complaint/scenario.
• Detailed rationale answers including actual diagnosis and graphical reference demonstrating key points on the ECG itself.
• Highlights acute STEMI, STEMI mimics, cath lab activation recommendations, electrolyte imbalances, and other cardiac and atypical presentations and anginal equivalents.
NOTE: This app contains 150 high-quality 12-lead ECG images and detailed graphic explanations. To provide this quality, the app is a large download. Android requires 91mb of available space (45mb cache for download and 45mb for product install). Some phones do not have this space available. If you have the needed space and get an error you may need to clear your market cache in order to download. Also due to size, downloading over a wireless network is preferable to the cellular network.
NOTE: Purchase of this app will not provide the user access to the lc-ready.com web site
ECG is the transthoracic (across the thorax or chest) interpretation of the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time, as detected by electrodes attached to the outer surface of the skin and recorded by a device external to the body. The recording produced by this noninvasive procedure is termed as electrocardiogram (also ECG or EKG).
An ECG test records the electrical activity of the heart. It is used to measure the rate and regularity of heartbeats, as well as the size and position of the chambers, the presence of any damage to the heart, and the effects of drugs or devices used to regulate the heart, such as a pacemaker.
It is commonly used in cardiology and is required knowledge for many fields in professional health, such as: nursing, EMT, ACLS, Paramedic, RN, Medics, and many more.

Pedi-STAT features include:
- Rapid results for airway interventions including endotracheal tube sizes, depth, intubation medication dosages, ventilator settings, and sedation
- Cardiac resuscitation data including weight specific dosages for resuscitation medications, cardioversion, and defibrillation
- Access to age and weight specific pediatric equipment including foley catheters, airway management, chest and NG tubes, peripheral and central line sizes, and more
- Seizure medication dosages
- Management of hypoglycemia including age specific dextrose concentrations
- Reference of age specific normal vital signs
- Procedural sedation dosages including single dose meds and infusions, as well as reversal agents
- Calculated pain management medications
- Medical management of allergic reactions and anaphylaxis
Users can quickly access critical information accurately, without having to rely on memory or cumbersome textbooks.
With just a few taps, users have access to all the necessary data to care for a pediatric patient in the emergent setting, including weight-based and age specific medication dosages and equipment sizes.
Since many of the patients present with minimal known information, all the results can be calculated rapidly with only a known age, date-of-birth, weight, length, or height. Simply enter the known variable and the data is instantly calculated.
Developed by an Emergency Physician, this app minimizes the risk of medical errors allowing the provider to spend more time caring for the patient, and less time looking up and calculating doses.
It is a critical companion for any physician, nurse, paramedic, or medical trainee involved in the care of critically ill pediatric patients.
* a quick reference for identifying all common ECG findings, such as hypertrophy, AV conduction defects, arrythmias and more
* a concise summary of how to record and read an ECG and a standardised evalutation sheet
* scales of 2 x RR (25 mm/s and 50mm/s), plus amplitudes (mV), times and intervals(ms)
This application directly accesses our Clinical Standard Work (CSW) Pathways. At Seattle Children’s, clinical standard work pathways are a documented standard approach that guides practitioners when providing care to specific patient populations. These clinical pathways improve the quality of care through standardization of treatment based on evidence in the published medical literature and/or expert opinion. Pathways are presented in an easy-to-read
algorithm format. Deeper levels of information are accessed through the use of hyperlinks.
When developing these pathways, committees of experts from different disciplines review the evidence to reach a consensus about treatments that result in the best outcomes for patients. The committees draw on Children’s organization-wide improvement approach – called
Continuous Performance Improvement (CPI) – to implement pathways and support change
Each pathway features:
1. Step by step decision algorithms from admit to discharge
2. Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria: Defines whether a patient is appropriate for a given pathway
3. Ability to Test Knowledge: Self assessment earns Category II CME Credit
4. Explanation of Evidence Rankings: Links to complete bibliography and explanation of how evidence was ranked
5. Summary of Version Changes: Chronologic summary of version changes
6. Highlighted clinically important warnings / pitfalls of care
7. Access to rationale and expanded information via hyperlinks
8. Discharge Criteria

Dosage Calc is an initiative to assist in the avoidance of drug errors. To do this it provides the following range of calculators for the health care professional to double check his/her own calculations:
Volume of Liquid
IV Drop Rate
Number of Tablets
IV Volume Rate
Dosage Calc works when your mobile is in "Flight Mode" making it very unlikely to interfeer with any equipment.
The application is being offered free during the initial pilot.
Please note that it is not intended to be used as the primary source for drug calculations. If your calculations disagree with Dosage Calc, please consult another authority in order to resolve the issue.
