Overview – 3.5-hour session

This three-and-a-half-hour workshop will give an overview of what a 12 lead ECG is and why ECGs are performed. The anatomy and physiology of the heart and its conduction system will be examined and the course delegates will be shown how to recognise a normal ECG and ‘red flag’ signs. This course will enable this group of staff to record technically safe and accurate ECGs and to be able to troubleshoot any difficulties encountered. All delegates will have the opportunity during the workshop to place chest leads onto an ECG mannequin.


INTERPRETATION IS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS COURSE.
