CV Podcast: Enhancing ECG Interpretation


Enhancing ECG Interpretation: Mayo Clinic’s VT Calculator

Electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation is an essential part of diagnosing and managing heart conditions. However, ECG interpretation is a complex and time-consuming process, requiring extensive knowledge and expertise. In an effort to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of ECG interpretation, Mayo Clinic has developed a ventricular tachycardia (VT) calculator.

In this episode of the "Mayo Clinic Cardiovascular CME" podcast, Adam May, M.D., a cardiac intensivist and assistant professor of medicine at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri, joins host Anthony Kashou, M.D., to discuss the Mayo Clinic VT calculator.

During the podcast, Dr. May and Dr. Kashou discuss:

  • What the Mayo Clinic VT calculator is and how it works.
  • The inspiration behind creating the calculator.
  • How the calculator can be used by health care professionals to enhance ECG interpretation.
  • The performance of the calculator in clinical practice.
