About SkillStat & Six Second ECG Simulator:
We are critical care practitioners, educators – and even patients – across most every healthcare discipline. We share a unique vision for building and keeping basic critical skills – in ECG interpretation, emergency cardiovascular care of adults and pediatric emergency care. We know that these skills often tip the balance in favor of those having a cardiovascular emergency. Early recognition and rapid intervention tend to divert ominous outcomes. Our passion is in creating specialized learning tools that are accessible, affordable and immediately useful. We design from core principles rooted in clinical experience and the science of best practice.
Six Second ECG Interpretation – true, robust interpretation that integrates ECG rhythm identification with meaningful connections to a patient’s health status – is our first major product line. Our 4 step approach to ECG interpretation is a proven approach to single-lead ECG rhythm identification that quickly addresses rhythm identification without ignoring the need for cardiac monitoring – the clinical significance of each rhythm to each patient.
