SKU: EKG052122

Overview: This is a one day course designed to enhance clinical decision making and assessment through the utilization of a systematic method of rhythm recognition. Cardiac physiology as it relates to the EKG is reviewed. Application and analysis of the EKG will be practiced to develop pattern recognition.


Objectives: At the conclusion of this course the active participant will have the ability to demonstrate through oral, practical and/orwritten evaluation: an understanding of basic heart anatomy and physiology, Describe the cardiac electrical conduction system, Identify the components of the cardiac cycle, Identify lethal and non-lethal Dysrhythmias, Recognize normal EKG measurements, Detect basic arrhythmias andDescribe the rapid interpretation method.
