Accurately identifying and interpreting EKG rhythm strips and 12 Lead EKGs are vital skills
needed by any Healthcare Practitioner providing care to a cardiac monitored patient.
Used by the Military, Major Hospitals, EMS and Universities throughout the country.
• The R-CAT (Rapid - Cardiac Analysis Tools) were designed to help medical personnel accurately and rapidly identify 41 different EKG Rhythms and 12 lead EKG changes associated with Ischemia, Injury, and Infarction.
• Medical personnel can initiate proper treatment, save valuable time, reduce critical errors and improve patient outcomes using these tools to assist in rapid rhythm interpretation or early detection of myocardial injury.
• The tools are an excellent investment for any Medical Personnel, EKG Instructor or for Students wishing to acquire the vital skills of EKG rhythm interpretation and identification of normal /abnormal 12 Lead EKG changes associated with STEMI.
According to a Circulation journal 2006, published by American Heart Association, "Emergency Department Quality in Myocardial Infarction (EDQMI) study, 114(15), 1565-1571; the conclusion of the study was:
Masoudi, F. et al. (2006). Implications of the failure to identify high-risk electrocardiogram findings for the quality of care of patients with acute myocardial infarction: results of the Emergency Department Quality in Myocardial Infarction (EDQMI) study. Circulation, 114(15), 1565-1571.
"The failure to identify high-risk ECG abnormalities occurred in 1 in 8 patients in this study of individuals presenting to the ED with AMI and was strongly associated with the failure to provide evidence-based medical care. This study highlights the importance of systems changes to enhance the accuracy of ECG interpretation. Such measures are likely to result in improved ED care for patients with AMI, a critical step in improving health outcomes."
"In a 12 hour ED shift I probably look at 20-30 12 lead EKGs in the midst of all of the other distractions. The R-CAT Window is a great tool for helping cut through the mental and visual clutter of the ED and stay focused on the critical question of 'STEMI or not'."

"I have found these EKG & arrhythmia packages to be a wonderful teaching tool for our paramedics, PA’s in ER, cath lab personal, rotating students, etc. These have not only made acute STEMI’s easier to detect quickly but also arrhythmia detection much more accurate. I would highly recommend these products to anyone who needs to accurately interpret EKG’s."
