FAQ with “Dr. Ollie”

Like so many out there, our first experience at learning EKGs was filled with a lot of confusion, frustration, and questions. But a funny thing happened - somewhere along the way of performing coronary angiograms, echocardiograms, and EP studies / ablations, things just starting clicking and coming together. What better way to understand what a Delta wave really is then to make it appear and the permanently disappear, right?

We thought back to our original days of learning EKGs and tried to figure out why it was hard to learn back then and we came to a couple of conclusions:

1. We rely on memorizing too much. Medical training can be overwhelming at times, and EKGs can be very complex. It can much easier to memorize something than to actually understand it. Which can help you pass a test. But here's the thing - EKGs in real life doesn't always look like the books. It's far more important to understand the concepts than to just pattern read.

2. The medium of which we learn EKGs can be improved. EKGs are not a static phenomenon. EKGs are recordings of electrical impulses that move in a 3D world in time and space. We learn about these in a 2D world through books. We're not criticizing books by any stretch of the imagination - but we found that people connected and understood much better when learning EKGs through animations, which closer approximates what they are in real life.

3. Lectures are great...and frustrating. As someone who has sat through multiple week board review courses, they can be wonderful, and grueling. Sometimes, a speaker will go through something so insightful, and you wish you had a pause button and could review it. Other times, towards the end of the week long conference, you can feel "fried" and you start to wonder how much of this are you absorbing.

Well, we came up with wonderful solution to this problem. Presenting EKGs in a format that is engaging and is complementary to a traditional learning format - animations. Reading about heart block is one thing. Actually seeing it unfold through animations may make it much clearer to understand. Many people struggle with arrhythmias. Seeing the complex circuits represented by animations can be powerful learning tools.

We feel that we have a pretty unique, special product. In addition to being health providers who are crazy passionate about teaching, we're also creative types. This is truly a project where medicine melds with art to produce something one of a kind.

As technology has advanced, we wanted to share this amazing product. As long as you have an internet connection and device (computer, laptop, tablet, phone etc) - you can watch this anywhere in the world, anytime on your schedule. And you can review things over and over again until it clicks.

We also believe in helping those who need our help. Chances are, if you're reading this and in the medical profession, so are do you. That's why we're donating 10% of the proceeds to a charity that you get to help decide (from a list). You can read more about our charities below.
