ACC/AHA Clinical Competence in ECG Diagnoses

The following list of ECG diagnoses was derived from a recently published statement of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) Committee to Develop a Clinical Competence Statement on Electrocardiography and Ambulatory Electrocardiography (J Am Coll Cardiol 2001;38:2091-2100). These diagnoses are considered to be the minimum knowledge necessary for competence in interpreting 12-lead ECGs. Items in the list are linked to topics in the ECG Outline of the Alan E. Lindsay ECG Learning Center or to ECG examples in the Image Index.
