Word Find - Cardiac

The questions in this word find are not designed to be easy. Some of the questions should challenge you to undertake online research, open a book, unlock information stored in the dark and dusty areas of your brain or inspire you to have a chat with a Colleague, the Cath Lab staff or a cardiologist. To get the most out of the word find, try to explore the information and make links with your current knowledge, rather than just finding the answer that will fill in the gap. For example 'The P wave on an ECG rep­resents the spread of electrical im­pulses through the atria, this process is known as? Go beyond the ques­tion and find out what stage in the cardiac cycle do each of the waves on an ECG represent, why do they ap­pear as a peak or a trough, where do the electrical impulses arise from?
