Cardiac Dysrhythmia Heartbeat Dances

Doin’ the Afib Dance – this one just cracks me up!  It does help visualize the different types of arrhythmias.  Fun to Watch – Good music too.

  7. wow! thanks so much for this, folks!!! XCLNT concept to lay-personize the realm of the Heart, and an intro to it’s diseases. i’ve always had a fascination with the organ…albeit a kind of morbid one….and, now that it appears? i’m experiencing the beginnings (or the endings, by the time symptoms start showing) of heart disease, this presentation REALLY is helpful to visualize…FOR FREE! ^5 and big ups…are you doctors?

  8. Can’t thank you enough. I take? my national exam as an MA tomorrow and found this on a break from studying, right in the middle of studying ECG’s. You’re awesome!

  9. My friends and I all hope that this was a? project for a class and that you all aced it. Every nurse I’ve shown has absolutely loved it!

  11. dont get? it.. i am so lost… with the whole picture… can someone explain to me.. all i am seeing a boy bending down and stretching his arms

  12. This is so hillarious by the time we got to A-fib I had to pause? the video so I could finish laughing 🙂

  13. Ok, do any of you know the name of the vid where? there is an asian guy doing the a-fib dance and he talks slang like? I saw the vid in my class and found it really funny!!

  14. You can’t really do anything with Asystole. They’d? just be standing there.

  15. Honestly, if I ever have to teach? arrythmias, I’d love to use this. I’d still include the anecdote I was given to help remember wenkebach’s though..

  16. I showed this to two of my Surgical Technology classes today. It was a hit. Guys thank you so much for? showing how the heart can act. It was a hit. I even played it again, and made the students get up and “dance” with the video. Awesome job. Marsha Buchanan, CST, AAB, BSHCA. Riverside, CA

  17. I was? getting really frustrated with dysrhythmias up until this video. Now every time I see v-fib I’m going to bust out laughing (on the inside or course).

  18. Awesome guys! Hilareous! The? mag sulfate on the torsades was the perfect touch. Keep up the good work.

  19. I just sprayed ginger ale out of my nose? when I got to the Atrial Flutter part. That was great!
