Q16. How do I know Epicardio works?
An independent validation study was published in the Journal of Electrocardiology, authored by representatives of the Hull Royal Infirmary, UK and the Department of Cardiovascular Science, University of Sheffield, UK. The independent peer-reviewed study demonstrated the equivalence of Epicardio Simulation™ as a teaching tool for electrocardiogram interpretation when compared to traditional methods such as a lecture.
“There were no differences in mean ECG interpretation test scores immediately after or 3 months after teaching in the lecture or simulator (Epicardio) groups.”
Q17. What should I use Epicardio for?
Epicardio Simulation™ offers a revolutionary way to learn Cardiac Electrophysiology and Electrocardiography, starting from the basic functions of the heart through to the interactive modelling of multiple pathologies. Training modules take a user through the full requirements of the Cardiology elements of a medical degree, and beyond. Users include hospitals, medical schools, individual practitioners, students, pharmaceutical companies and cardiovascular device manufacturers. In-built tests assess ECG/EKG pathology interpretation. Although it is commonly used for reference, it should not be used a diagnostic tool.
