There was mention of a Journal of Hospitalist Medicine paper which categorizes EKG findings into common/uncommon, and urgent/non-urgent, for which there would be a link in the show notes. Not seeing there. Can I presume this is the one? Journal of Hospital Medicine 2018;13:185-193. Just realized the lead author was my senior resident on Internal Medicine rotation in medical school! Small world.

Yes, Branden, that's the one! Thanks for pointing it out. And what a fun coincidence!

Interesting point relevant to PC RAPers about this lead author, Dr Antiperovitch, is that he was actually initially trained as a GP and then returned to residency for IM, so I think his perspective on GP interpretation of EKGs is particularly relevant, having seen it from the generalist and specialist perspective.

Here is the link to the paper for any other reader interested. https://www.journalofhospitalmedicine.com/jhospmed/article/150916/hospital-medicine/proposed-training-electrocardiogram-interpretation

Dr. Franz Wiesbauer the creator of the Medmastery site (https://www.medmastery.com/ ) has amazing videos going through how to interpret an EKG that truly taught me how to go through EKGs. The pearls he has are amazing. If anyone is interested in his book here is the link. Cheers!
