MI Rule

MI Rule Visions

Years ago, a computer generated 12-lead ECG interpretation for a female in her early 40's, (in no apparent distress as she read a magazine), reported “Normal Sinus Rhythm,” when the patient was actually having an MI!

Realizing computers are only as accurate as the human who programmed them, a 3D template to improve understanding was born. Trialed at an AMI course, MI Rule Visions was a hit! Many said, "It turned the light bulb on and they finally understood!”

It will do the same for you! Get one today!

MI Rule Visions
MI Rule Visions EMS

EMS MI Rule Visions

12-lead ECG interpretation template with clear overlay and 3D waveforms. Fits EMS 4” ECG paper and includes essential reference information.

MI Rule 15/18

Once a 12-lead ECG is completed, the 15-lead ECG takes a better look at the heart posteriorly (for a posterior infarct).

And after a 12-lead ECG is completed, an 18-lead ECG takes a better look at the right side of the heart (for a right-sided infarct).

MI Rule 15/18 Includes guidelines for obtaining these tracings, suggested treatment pathways for RV infarcts, and other references.
