Welcome to echelon's Cardiac Electrophysiology Review for Nuclear Medicine Technology or ECG course. Before we can discuss the process of conducting an electrocardiogram, we must first review the heart's anatomy and physiology, as well as its electrophysiology. After all, the heart is more than a muscle comprised of a complex network of supporting arteries and veins. It's an electrical system.

Learning exactly how this complex muscle works is key to understanding the process of properly conducting and interpreting a dysrhythmia or abnormal heart rhythm. While complex in design, the function of the heart is quite simple-it's a muscular pump that moves the blood throughout the body, sustaining the body's metabolic needs. This course provides a comprehensive guide to dysrhythmias commonly manifested by imaging patients.
