This classroom course covers basic ECG measurements, basic arrhythmias and rhythm recognition.
This classroom-based, Instructor-led course is designed to improve electrocardiogram (ECG) recognition skills and knowledge for treating cardiovascular emergencies.
This course is for healthcare professionals who participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies. This includes personnel in emergency response, emergency medicine, intensive care and critical care units such as physicians, nurses, paramedics, and others who require this specialized knowledge for their job. This is an excellent course for charge nurses and those who are planning on taking an Advanced Cardiac Life Support or Pediatric Advanced Life Support Course.
Normal ECG measurements
This course was created because ECG recognition skills and drug treatment knowledge have been identified as key gaps in knowledge for Advanced Cardiac Life Support students.
Without strong competency in either ECG recognition or drug treatment knowledge related to the ACLS algorithms, achievement of ACLS certification for the healthcare provider is more difficult.
As a result, this course was created to address those knowledge gaps and serve as a precourse option for ACLS students who have been identified through the ACLS Precourse Self-assessment as needing to improve ECG recognition skills and drug treatment, or for ACLS students who in general need to refresh their skills and knowledge.
This is an excellent Pre-Advanced Cardiac Life Support Course, or for those who work on monitored cardiac units.
1. Explain heart anatomy and basic electrophysiology
2. Explain normal ECG measurements
3. Recognize and understand basic arrhythmias
Upon successful completion, students will receive a Certificate of Completion. Completion of this course does not result in an American Heart Association (AHA) course completion card.
