Deakin University’s cARdiac ECG is an engaging, fun and practical way to start learning about the ECG and heart fundamentals through Augmented Reality. This app will take you on an interactive journey to explore the fundamental concepts of cardiac anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology relevant to the ECG. This is not a textbook – it’s an immersive way to learn the WHAT, WHY and HOW cardiac anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology are captured by the ECG in common and important clinical scenarios.

- Explore the heart with interactive cardiac model with overlays of the conduction system, blood flow and ECG trace
- Understand the ECG with models of normal sinus rhythm, bradycardia, tachycardia and other important arrhythmias including ventricular fibrillation and acute myocardial infarction
- Learn how to perform an ECG Procedure with step by step tutorial including lead placement
- Test your skills in the Assess mode allowing you to check your understanding and email your results to yourself or your clinical teacher

If you’re a Health student – this is the tool for you to conceptualize what the ECG shows, and how to record an ECG.

If you’re a teacher – you can use cARdiac as an adjunct to standard ECG textbooks and resources to help learners understand fundamental ECG concepts in an engaging and realistic experience.

Certain functions, such as the Learn and Assess modules, are currently only available to Deakin medical students. For further information contact the Deakin University School of Medicine at:

Need all access

How do I gain access to the full version of this app? I love it so far but it will not let me move beyond seeing the front view and labels. It’s asking for a passcode which I don’t know anything about it.
