This course is designed for physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists, physician assistants, registered nurses and other medical care providers who must maintain state-of-the-art knowledge of not only the specialty but also of all additional, related disciplines which may impact it.
Due to the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease and standards of care regarding EKG monitoring by various professional organizations, physicians in many specialties (anesthesiology, emergency medicine, and critical care), advanced practice nurses, and other health care providers are being challenged to interpret the EKG as well as treat underlying dysrhythmias. This program is designed to update these practitioners with the latest information on this body of scientific information and reinforce cardinal EKG
concepts for accurate interpretation. This course offers 8 contact hours.
At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:
Review the 12-lead EKG system, the normal morphology of the EKG waveforms, and options for lead placement.
Define the criteria for assessing evidence of myocardial ischemia, injury, and infarction, including the limitations of the EKG.
Review the classic placement of chest leads and limb leads as well as discuss legitimate variations available for EKG lead placement for surgical and postoperative patients.
Apply the criteria for the diagnosis of supraventricular arrhythmias (e.g., sinus bradycardia, atrial tachycardia, atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, and Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome).
Explain the treatment guidelines for supraventricular arrhythmias.
Apply the criteria for the diagnosis of first degree heart block, second degree heart block (Mobitz I & II), and third degree heart block with a junctional escape or ventricular escape rhythm.
Discuss the treatment of AV nodal and infranodal arrhythmias.
Apply the criteria for the diagnosis of ventricular arrhythmias (e.g., torsade de pointes, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation.
Discuss the recommended treatment for ventricular arrhythmias.
Diagnose faculty-presented EKG rhythm strips and 12 Lead EKGs, reviewing the criteria by which each was identified.
Clarify the material presented throughout the day through questions and answers and discuss participants’ concerns for application in their own clinical settings.
