Below are links to my books, materials and multimedia presentations using various Podcast, Webcast and Screencasting tools. They are intended for continuing medical education for paramedic students, working paramedics*, other health care professionals or anyone who simply wants to learn.
* I use the term “paramedic” generically to describe ambulance service personnel since all ambulance in Canada are staffed with paramedic and my hope is that there will one day be global consensus to do away with other terms like AEMCA, EMA, EMT, EMT-A, EMT-P and the dozens of other terms and short forms that are at least partially responsible for perpetuating our identity crisis as a profession.

Part 6: ECG Exercises
If you have a copy of my book, I recommend that you review and interpret the ECGs in part 6 before viewing the following multimedia presentations. Alternatively once the ECG comes up on the screen I recommend pausing the slide show to analyze the ECG and write down your interpretation before viewing the rest of the narrated presentation.
Great news! You can now purchase my Cardiac Dysrhythmia Interpretation in either paper or eBook format at Amazon
Or go to your country’s Amazon site and do search for “Rob Theriault”.
If you purchase the book, you’ll find QR Codes that link to content related to the book. In the meantime, you’re welcome to view the videos based on my book: The following are 3-5 minute presentations based on my book “Cardiac Dysrhythmia Interpretation” (self-published).
Educators can get a copy of the instructor slides that accompany the Cardiac Dysrhythmia Interpretation or 12-15 Lead ECG Interpretation workbooks by sending me an e-mail from your college, university or training agency e-mail address.
12-15 Lead ECG Interpretation
Multimedia presentations to accompany my 12-15 Lead ECG workbook. This book is NOW available from Amazon.
