ECG Analysis: Rhythm Recognition

Green Clock Hours: 3.00

ECG rhythm recognition and analysis continue to be a major nursing responsibility in the acute care setting, yet has expanded beyond into other clinical settings. Since the advent of bedside monitoring and coronary care units in the 1960s, the ability to understand and interpret a bedside monitor is no longer an expectation of only critical care and emergency nurses. Medical/surgical, ambulatory, and even primary care medical personnel need to be competent in ECG rhythm analysis. Examples of disciplines include physicians, physician assistants, nursing, combat medics, paramedics, independent duty medical technician/Corpsmen, Hospital Corpsmen, etc.  With an understanding of basic cardiac physiology and practice, successful ECG interpretation is possible. Gaining proficiency in ECG interpretation and rhythm recognition can help the healthcare staff  to intervene efficiently and effectively in a potentially difficult clinical situation and, ultimately, improve patient outcomes.

The goal of this course is to educate medical personnel in various healthcare the skill of ECG rhythm recognition.

The ECG values in this course may vary slightly based on the reference material.
