Default I got 1 ECG

I had one ECG on my exam,
But ECG tested on Step-1 are not that difficult
Following ECG can be tested
1. Fibrillation
2. Flutter
3. Heart Block
4. Hypokalemia/Hyperkalemia

There were 3-4 heart sounds in my exam. So know them good.

agreed....even the Q will give you hint about the disorder. Same stands for cardiac murmurs.
