The science of 12-leads
By Stryker Emergency Care
Let’s take an in-depth look at the clinical context surrounding ECGs. In this episode, Sean Graham interviews Blaine Krusor, who has spent the last 20 years focused on emergency medicine and the science that drives it. Currently one of Stryker’s clinical experts, Blaine began his career as a hospital cardiac RN and a CCU/ICU RN. He also holds multiple device patents in the areas of defibrillation and electrocardiography. Sean and Blaine discuss areas of 12-lead interpretation, including the Sgarbossa criteria and how clinicians can better utilize the 12-lead tool for improving diagnoses for acute coronary syndrome patients. This is part 1 of a three-part series on ECGs.
