ECG Core Series- 1: Basic ECG Interpretation

*Registration payment includes Credit Cards and Interfund Transfers ONLY.

Target Audience

RNs, LPNs, cardio-vascular monitor techs, and other healthcare professionals with VERY LIMITED OR NO experience in ECG rhythm interpretation who wish to master the skill of the very basics of ECG interpretation

Description

This one-day course is designed to equip the participant with the BASIC knowledge essential for interpreting ECG rhythms. Methods for identifying P, QRS, T waveforms, measurements of segments and intervals, calculation of heart rate provide the tools necessary to interpret basic rhythms. This course provides practice with measurements and interpretation of sinus, atrial, junctional, ventricular, pacemaker, and AV block rhythms .

Textbook provided: ECGs Made Easy, 5th ed. (2013) by Barbara Aehlert; Mosby Elsevier Health Science Publishers.

"ECG Core Series-3 12-Lead ECG Interpretation" workshop offers a systematic approach for examining and interpreting 12 lead ECG’s as well as basic treatments in various situations and potential problems that may be encountered. Topics will include ischemia, injury, infarcts, bundle branch blocks, axis deviations.

Objectives

  • State the differences between electrical & mechanical activity within the heart
  • Describe electrodes and the critical importance of proper lead placement
  • State at least one method for calculating heart rate on an ECG strip
  • State the location and intrinsic rates for SA node, AV, junction, Bundle of His, and Purkinje fibers
  • Identify and measure the ECG waveform components (P wave, QRS complex, T wave, PR interval, QT interval, ST segment)
  • Identify a systematic approach to basic rhythm analysis
  • Recognize common ECG dysrhythmias
