Description

Provides an overview of both normal sinus rhythm and dysrhythmias. Treatment methods discussed include defibrillators and pacemakers. The course begins with the normal electrical conduction of the heart, and then reviews the steps of how to interpret electrocardiography (ECG). You will learn how to determine the heart rhythm and heart rate. Special considerations associated with Acute Coronary Syndrome are featured. Today, ECG interpretation is a skill necessary for nurses in a variety of clinical settings. The ability for nurses to quickly and accurately identify dysrhythmias is vital to assure prompt interventions and life-saving measures when necessary. Case Studies help connect content with practice.
