ECG Made Simple
ECG Made Simple (EMS) is a comprehensive web-based ECG learning program that teaches the art and science of electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation. It addresses the needs of various groups of learners, including medical students, post-graduate medical trainees, and practicing physicians who need a refresher.
The ECG Made Simple tutorials utilize animations extensively to illustrate the often difficult to explain time-based concepts inherent in ECG understanding.
The practice section is populated with ECG tracings of increasing level of difficulty (5 levels). The ECGs could be accessed through the practice lists or by using the “Search Module”, which allows users to search for specific ECGs based on the diagnosis and level of difficulty.
The glossary provides a list of ECG statements with the corresponding diagnostic criteria. These can also be viewed in all ECG cases by pointing the mouse cursor at the active terms

Atherosclerosis Cross Sections
Cross-sections of multiple arteries from a patient with atherosclerosis, seen as white fatty plaque occluding the arterial lumen. Various degrees of stenosis are seen. Some of vessels showed evidence of plaque rupture and formation of a fully occluding thrombus (black arrows). (courtesy of Dr. Jagdish Butany)
