You understand the rhythm the patient is displaying on the monitor, but how do you interpret the 12-lead ECG? Is the chest pain significant enough to require thrombolytics or interventional cardiology? What ST segment abnormalities should I be looking for in a 12-lead? What changes occur with electrolyte abnormalities and bundle branch blocks? This course will explore the beginning concepts of 12-lead ECG interpretation and enhance the learners understanding of this valuable tool. This interactive course includes lecture, group participation, and skill acquisition to facilitate the learning activity. Basic cardiac rhythm knowledge is a prerequisite to this course. Students should bring their own calipers for ECG exercises. In order to receive a certificate of successful completion for 7.0 contact hours, all attendees must sign the official registration form, attend the entire seminar, and turn in a completed evaluation form.
