This ECG is being offered as a teaching aid, to show how artifact can affect our ability to interpret an ECG, and to encourage our students to be meticulous in obtaining a good-quality tracing whenever possible.  If there are insurmountable obstacles preventing a technically good tracing, the circumstances should be written on the ECG.  Such obstacles could be:  seizures, tremors, vigorous resuscitation efforts underway, or patient not cooperating.
