Academic- Analysis of the 12-lead ECG: Beyond the basics
Prerequisite: This program is designed for primary care providers who have mastered the basic principles of 12-lead ECG Interpretation: A Primary Care Perspective.
Building upon the basic course, this program provides a more in-depth presentation of cardiac electrical activity, followed by a 5-step approach to the interpretation of acute and chronic conditions evident of the 12-lead ECG.
This program features an interactive format, allowing you to follow along as the ECG tracings are interpreted.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will have acquired a systematic approach to assessing the 12-lead ECG, in particular evaluating:
- Hexaxial axis determination.
- Left and right bundle branch block.
- Pericarditis versus acute myocardial problems.
- Multichamber hypertrophy.
- Atrial abnormalities.
- Atypical presentation of myocardial events.
- Subendocardial vs transmural myocardial infarction.
