|Participants will appreciate the importance of the electrocardiogram as a diagnostic tool; identify the role of the clinician, and learn the synergy between the clinician and the ECG monitoring.
|The course shall discuss the heart: its structures and functions, blood supply and circulation in the heart, and the electrophysiology and cardiac cycle.
|Learn to identify the components of the ECG monitoring system; the ECG leads, analysis of the ECG rhythms and in monitoring patients with ECG procedure.
|Different cardiac rhythms will be discussed: sinus rhythms, atrial rhythms and ventricular rhythms.
|The different junctional rhythms will be tackled as well:
premature, junctional escape, accelerated junctional, and junctional tachycardia.
|Learn more about the types of AV blocks: first degree, second degree, and third degree blocks
This course will give the healthcare provider the knowledge and skills necessary to adequately care patients under cardiac monitoring. In addition to learning to read the various rhythms, the student will also gain an understanding of the pathophysiology behind each dysrhythmia. Our updated curriculum involves a discussion of cardiovascular anatomy and physiology, a systematic approach to interpreting cardiac rhythms,
and the latest treatment for each rhythm.
