Easy as.... ECG Course
The Easy as.... ECG Course is an introductory course for clinicians working in acute clinical settings who want to develop their understanding and interpretation of ECGs.
Delivered by Paramedics and Nurse Specialists currently working in acute cardiology or emergency services practice our instructors will provide all the information and skills required for you to identify, recognise and interpret primary cardiac rhythms confidently.
Building upon the basic cardiac rhythm knowledge, we start to look at the "Say What You See" model of 12 lead interpretation. At the end of the session, YOU WILL be able to demonstrate that you can recognise and diagnose common cardiac issues seen on a 12 lead, such as ischaemia and acute myocardial infarctions.
There will be the ability to practice your ECG interpretation skills in various scenarios, gradually building your ECG confidence and 12 lead diagnosis.
The course covers:
Essential anatomy and physiology of the heart.
Its relationship to the conduction system.
3 lead cardiac rhythms and arrhythmia's.
12 lead understanding, recognition and diagnosis.
All of our sessions are held in small groups to ensure we offer you a personal experience and to maximise your learning. Held in the comfort of your own workplace or at our excellent training facilities in Christchurch, we can develop a customised plan for your educational needs or training requirements.
The course is held over 4 hours, to ensure we have adequate time to cover the subject, answer your questions and deliver the course to your requirements. A certificate of attendance and recognition for your achievements will be issued, and can be used as 4 hours towards your clinical continued educational credits.
