Below are links to my books, materials and multimedia presentations using various Podcast, Webcast and Screencasting tools. They are intended for continuing professional development (CPD) for paramedic students, working paramedics*, other health care professionals or anyone who simply wants to learn. Be sure also to follow the link on the right side of the page to the Georgian College iTunes U Podcast site. This is where I post the discussions from my classes.
* I use the term “paramedic” generically to describe ambulance service personnel since all ambulance in Canada are staffed with paramedics and my hope is that there will one day be global consensus to do away with other terms like AEMCA, EMA, EMT, EMT-A, EMT-P and the dozens of other terms and short forms that are at least partially responsible for perpetuating our identity crisis as a profession.
Some of these links are from my college YouTube page (ad free) and some of them are from my Paramedic Tutor YouTube page. If you see an ad, please let it play through from time to time or click on a link that interests you. Ads are the only source of income, and it’s not much, for those of us in the free open access “meducation” EMS (#FOAMems) world. And of course, if you’re studying ECCG rhythms and 12 Lead ECGs, please consider buying one of my workbooks on Amazon. Inside the books you’ll find QR codes on most pages that link to video content.

Part 6: ECG Exercises
If you have a copy of my book, I recommend that you review and interpret the ECGs in part 6 before viewing the following multimedia presentations. Alternatively once the ECG comes up on the screen I recommend pausing the slide show to analyze the ECG and write down your interpretation before viewing the rest of the narrated presentation.
Great news! You can now purchase my Cardiac Dysrhythmia Interpretation in either paper or eBook format at Amazon
Or go to your country’s Amazon site and do search for “Rob Theriault”.
Educators can get a copy of the instructor slides that accompany the Cardiac Dysrhythmia Interpretation or 12-15 Lead ECG Interpretation workbooks by sending me an e-mail from your college, university or training agency e-mail address.

Advanced Life Support Drug Guide for Paramedics
In 2007 I published a book with Elsevier entitled The Canadian Paramedic: An Introduction. The chapter on medical legal for paramedics is excellent and is still current.
