  • Rs.2,500

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is intended for nurses and other healthcare professionals who are required to evaluate ECG tracings. Key areas of concentration in this self-paced course include a review of the anatomy, physiology, and function of the heart, ECG lead placement and waveforms, and interpretation of cardiac rhythms and arrhythmias. A systematic method to analyze the ECG is presented and demonstrated. Type of arrhythmias are discussed, answering the questions: what do I call the rhythm, what does it mean, and what do I do about it? Hands-on practice exercises are presented to enhance the learning experience.

 

By the end of this program, the participant should be able to: 

1. Understand the heart anatomy with its functions, blood flow through heart, and the conduction system of heart.

2. Describe the electrical basis of the ECG, as well as 3-, 5-, 6-, and 12-lead configuration for monitoring.

3. Explain the components of an ECG waveform.  

4. Recognize various types of arrhythmias. 

 

REQUIREMENTS

This course can be taken by nurses and other healthcare professionals.
