Rapid and accurate interpretation of rhythms and 12-Leads during cardiac emergencies ensures optimal interventions,
resulting in improved patient outcomes. This 1-day program will provide a concise and systematic approach to the
interpretation of the ECG that includes instruction as to which leads are best suited to reveal important interpretive clues, along with descriptions of the subtle and not-so-subtle morphologic clues seen in potentially life-threatening conditions. Several electrocardiographic tracings and scenarios are presented throughout the day that will provide opportunities for interaction and practice.
Program Learning Outcomes
This program prepares the learner to:
· Outline a systematic approach to the analysis and interpretation of rhythms and 12-Leads.
· Correlate lead selections with specific electrocardiographic abnormalities.
· Accurately interpret selected ECG rhythms and 12-Leads.
