University of Glamorgan Shares Online ECG Simulator
Virtual ECG is an online, interactive simulation for teaching/training accurate recording of electrocardiographs (ECG/EKG).
For the past year Barry Richards, Senior Web Developer from the University of Glamorgan has been designing/building a simulation for teaching/training accurate recording of electrocardiographs: Virtual ECG.
Barry has been developing this project with Peter Lewis (a cardiac psyiologist currently working at Anglia Ruskin University, though previously University of Glamorgan) and Project Manager Martin Lynch.
In Spring 2012 this ECG Simulator was nominated for a British Universities Film & Video Council ‘Learning on Screen’ 2012 award in the ‘Courseware and Curriculum’ category.
You can read more about Virtual ECG and it’s ability to generate in excess of six trillion unique scan results on his personal site: http://www.brichards.co.uk/design-and-development/virtual-ecg
The simulation itself is at https://ecg.glam.ac.uk
Barry is looking for medical simulation community feedback regarding this online simulator saying “Please try it out and let me know what you think of it, I’d love to hear any feedback about the simulation, or if you are interested in it’s future development”. Contact Barry through his email address.
