Course Description: This course presents the student with an introductory overview related to the anatomy and physiology of the heart and electrocardiograms. It also explores normal electrical conduction as well as common variations in the waveform on a cardiac monitoring device. The course will focus on the student’s ability to interpret cardiac monitoring via 3, 5 and 12 lead monitoring devices.
Student Learning Outcomes: Upon the successful completion of this course, the student should be able to: Define characteristics of the cardiac system related to anatomy and physiology of the heart, demonstrate understanding of normal electrophysiology of the cardiac system, recognize normal waveforms in the electrical conduction of the cardiac system, identify common variations in the electrical conduction of the cardiac system, distinguish deadly heart rhythms in the electrical conduction of the cardiac system and to demonstrate an understanding of their role and responsibilities for obtaining & or monitoring EKG/ECGs.
Intended Audience: Nurses, Doctors, EMTs, Paramedics, hospital/clinic personnel, or anyone interested in the healthcare field learning the basics of ecg rhythm interpretation.
Delivery: Online/virtual format
