The ST1501 STEMI ECG Simulator is an easy to use training tool for learning to recognize STEMI, imposter and core ACLS waveforms, as well as for practicing defibrillation and external pacing.
Right Ventricular STEMI
Standard chest electrode placements, V1 - V6, do not look directly at the right ventricle. When a right ventricular STEMI is suspected, guidelines recommend relocating the V4 lead to V4R. The ST1501 includes an ECG snap, V4R, to simulate a direct view of the right ventricle.
Standard chest electrode placements, V1 - V6, do not look directly at the posterior ventricle. When a posterior STEMI is suspected, guidelines recommend relocating the V5 and V6 leads to V8 and V9. The ST1501 includes two ECG snaps, V8 and V9, to simulate a direct view of the posterior ventricle.
Changes in T waves, ST segments and Q waves occur during the minutes and hours after an occlusion. Understanding the evolution of a STEMI is essential for correct diagnosis and treatment. The ST1501 presents each of its seven STEMIs in three phases of progression.
Changes to T waves and ST segments aren't always an indication of STEMI. The ST1501 presents four common imposters that resemble STEMI's, but aren't.
Core ACLS waveforms (13)
- Ventricular Fibrillation
- Ventricular Tachycardia - fast with wide QRS
- Ventricular Tachycardia - slow with wide QRS
- Supra Ventricular Tachycardia
- Sinus Tachycardia
- Atrial Fibrillation with rapid varying ventricular response
- Atrial Flutter with 2:1 AV block
- Normal Sinus Rhythm
