ECGs can be easy INTERMEDIATE Course

8 Clinical Points Only R 2 300.00 (incl VAT)

Course Description

The main aim of this ECG course is to master the basic ECG elements and know what a normal ECG looks like, recognise dangerous rhythms, and get an overview of medical treatment of some of these conditions, combining theory and practice.


Introduction

You are guided through each segment of the ECG, cardiac axis, rhythm, rate, various ECG abnormalities, as well as interpretation of the ECG. Recognition of dangerous rhythms, patient management and an overview of medical treatment of some of these conditions is covered. The aim is not only to provide a theoretical overview of the anatomy of the cardiac conduction system, but also to present the content in a way that logically links cardiac anatomy and the electrophysiological changes that present on the ECG so that it is not merely an identification of what, but why, these changes occur.

Application of this knowledge in the practical part of the course is essential. Interactive learning ensures understanding, which is key to lasting knowledge! After all, the development of competence and confidence comes with practice


Who Should Enroll

Medical practitioners, emergency personnel, nurses, biokineticists
