An arrhythmia trainer has been developed to assist in the teaching of arrhythmia pattern recognition and to facilitate practice sessions in the electrical treatment of arrhythmias. This small computerized machine can replace the need for using animal preparations to train the hospital staff in defibrillation. It may also be programmed to teach synchronized defibrillation and external pacing, and it makes daily practice sessions possible. The machine may also be used to record arrhythmias on tape.
