Philosophy and ECG Interpretation

Frederick Nietzsche and the EKG

  • On EKG Analysis: "There are no facts, only interpretations"
  • Nietzsche writes to Einthoven: "When you look into an EKG, the EKG also looks into you"

ECG interpretation raises the dilemma of   superficial (bad)  analysis versus detailed (good)  analysis, or what has been termed the "Good Rat Bad Rat" problem by the Collingwood (black and white)  school of philosophy.
