ACLS Rhythm Strips
The evaluation of ACLS rhythm strips in the critical care setting and in the ACLS certification setting usually does not involve looking directly at ACLS rhythm strips on paper, but rather it involves looking at a defibrillator monitor and rapidly evaluating a rhythm based upon what is seen on the monitor.
This section of our site will provide you with what you need to understand all of the basic rhythms that you will encounter in the ACLS megacode and when responding to emergency situations. After review of this section, you will be able to rapidly identify these rhythms and treat them according to ACLS protocol.

After you are proficient at evaluating ACLS rhythm strips, you will be ready to use the Megacode Simulator to practice your skills and master the acls algorithms. Feel free to try it out at the above link.
