12 Lead ECG Interpretation

Program Description

You are experienced with interpreting the ECG rhythm the patient is displaying on the monitor, but how do you interpret the full 12-lead ECG?  This rapidly moving course will explore 12-lead ECG interpretation beyond basic cardiac ECG rhythms.  We will explore the advanced ECG concepts of bundle branch blocks, chamber enlargement, axis deviation, and ST-segment elevation, ST-segment depression and T-wave inversions and their relationship to STEMI and NSTEMI MI’s.  You will gain greater understanding of this valuable tool and use practical systematic steps for analyzing a 12-lead ECG.  This interactive course includes lecture, group participation, and skill acquisition exercises. Competency of basic cardiac ECG rhythm knowledge and identification is a mandatory prerequisite to this course.

Who Should Attend?  Registered Nurses practicing in acute care environments (PCU/ICU/CCU/ED), Advanced Practice Nurses in all areas with basic ECG experience, telemetry/ECG technicians, emergency department technicians, and other Health Sciences Professionals wishing to perform advanced 12-lead ECG interpretation.
