I am not sure but for steps you need to learn EKG from basics- learn how to count HR, Axis deviation, R-R interval, Heart blocks etc.Do we need to know how to interpret this? If so can some explain what exactly we need to know from it to answer questions? thanks
Yes its more likely to be tested in the step 2 but on the whole in my opinion solid knowledge in the interpretation of EKG is required both for for Step 1 and Step 2.we need to know R-R intervals and axis deviation even for step 1? or is this pertaining to step 2?
Well i am an old Grad and did some house job in Medicine, so had to get familiar with EKGs. If you are really interested in learning EKG, I would recommend Rapid Interpretation of EKG's by Dale Dubin
