Nice To Know ECG Tips | The J Wave

Some of the ECG information we learn and take in as EMS providers are nice to know. Meaning it doesn’t always change how we treat a patient.

The J wave or Osborne wave while not a treatable abnormality, can let us in on what may be going on with a patient, giving us a bigger picture to work with.
