iWorx Arrhythmia Generator and Labs

Abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias) are sequences of heartbeats that are irregular, too fast, too slow, or conducted via an abnormal electrical pathway through the heart. Using the ECG simulator, students will be able to record and analyze resting ECGs and a variety of different arrhythmias.  Analysis of each cardiac rhythm will allow students to gain an understanding of the physiological parameters associated with normal sinus rhythm and cardiac anomalies.

It is definitely not a usual occurrence that we are able to record when someone is in cardiac arrest, nor would we want this to be happening in our labs.  However, for many students, this is an important part of learning about normal vs. abnormal cardiac rhythms.  The iWorx  A-ECG-SIM – Electrocardiogram Simulator has the ability to generate a variety of cardiac rhythms, including normal sinus rhythms in adults and infants as well as different arrhythmias.  These include atrial fibrillation, toursade, bundle branch blocks and many others.

Normal sinus rhythm shows a definite pattern of the P wave, QRS complex, and T wave.  Within that pattern, there are normal amplitudes generated for each waveform as well as the time interval for each section of the cardiac cycle.  In cardiac arrhythmias, the waveforms generated show the inconsistencies between the normal rhythm and the particular arrhythmia being shown.  As an example, in atrial fibrillation there is a “quivering” of the upper chambers of the heart, rather than a distinct P wave, the data show a very fast, chaotic rhythm in the atria. This occurs because the electrical impulses from the sinoatrial (SA) node are so chaotic, the atria cannot contract and/or squeeze blood effectively into the ventricle.

Using the ECG simulator, students will be able to record and analyze resting ECGs and a variety of different arrhythmias.  Analysis of each cardiac rhythm will allow students to gain an understanding of the physiological parameters associated with normal sinus rhythm and cardiac anomalies.
