The course includes the functional anatomy and physiology of heart. This course also covers identification of ECG waveforms and rhythm disorders.A systematic method to analyze the ECG is demonstrated. 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.
This course can be taken by nurses and other healthcare professionals.
