Nursing accreditation Info for EKG / ECG Interpretation Explained Clearly


Audience

Medical and Nursing professionals, particularly those working in the emergency department, critical care, and inpatient hospital setting.


Course Description

Understand the electrical activity represented on EKG paper that allows the heart to beat and cycle blood through our bodies. You'll learn cues to notice abnormal findings in a systematic way.

Dr. Seheult will be your step by step mentor: reinforcing key cardiac physiology, explaining abnormal findings and how they develop in the first place, the appearance of a normal EKG, and a clinical perspective of EKG nuances, scenarios, and rare findings.

Quiz questions after each video reinforce essential concepts, and the course concludes with nine practice EKGs that Dr. Seheult systematically interprets.
