ECG + Coronary Care
15-Lead ECG Interpretation & Arrhythmia Management
This is a 4-day-didactic and comprehensive 15-lead-ECG interpretation and arrhythmia management course offered to nurses who are working in the critical care unit, step down and or other RNs who simply want to learn the ECG course
This is a 4-day-didactic and comprehensive 15-lead-ECG interpretation and arrhythmia management course offered to nurses who are working in the critical care unit, step down and or other RNs who simply want to learn the ECG course. The introductory component of the program entails lecture on anatomy and cardioelectrophysiology. The remaining component is a blend of arrhythmia interpretation and assessment with special emphasis on locating MI (Myocardial Infarction), normal axis deviation and electrolytes; pharmacotherapeutics; medical and nursing management.
1. Demonstrate knowledge application on anatomy, cardio electrophysiology and arrhythmia interpretation.
2. Demonstrate medical and nursing management.
3. Assess for MI (Myocardial Infraction), normal axis deviation and electrolytes.
4. Recognize a variety of dysrhythmias commonly encountered in the critical care unit, ER and step down unit.
5. Demonstrate correct procedure for placement and monitoring of 15-lead ECG.
6. Describe the pathology of acute coronary syndrome and MI.
Students must be Registered Practical Nurses, Registered Nurses or other healthcare professions which practice ECG interpretation and arrhythmia management within their scope of practice.
Coronary Care Component
This is a 4-day-course that serves to review the basic cardiac anatomy and physiology with specific emphasis on the coronary arteries, their location, distribution, histology, and properties that distinguish them from the other arteries of the circulatory system. The course will illustrate the vital role of the platelets in the pathogenesis of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) and the inflammatory process involved. The pivotal role of the 12-Lead ECG will be discussed together with description and definition of Unstable angina and Non ST-segment and ST-segment elevation myocardial infarctions, their complications and out come. Cardiac catheterization and the cardiac cath lab nurse and his/her role will be discussed. Immersion of the vital role of nursing care, particularly recognition and identification of the cardiac patient in the emergency room and their management will form the major bulk of the course.
