|Assessment Pre-Test: Provides benchmark for ECG and Dysrhythmias
Voluntary completion provides you with a benchmark of personal assessment and 1 CEU.
Upon successful completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
Part 1: Anatomy and Physiology and ECG
Part 2: Rhythms
- Describe the anatomical structures and functions of the heart.
- Explore the process of electrical conduction in the heart.
- Recall the properties of cardiac depolarization and repolarization.
- Describe the relationship of each ECG waveform to the electrical events in the heart.
- Apply correct waveform measurement, rate calculation, and analysis techniques for interpreting and ECG strip.
- Describe correct lead placement.
Part 3: Treatment and Pharmacologics
- Identify specific sinus rhythms and describe specific charactyeristics, causes, and treatment for each.
- Identify specific junctional rhythms and describe specific characteristics, causes, and treatment for each.
- Identify specific ventricular thythms and describe specific characteristics, causes, and treatment for each.
- Identify specific heart block rhythms and describe specific characteristics, causes, and treatment for each.
Assessment Post-Test: Application Assessment of ECG Part 1, 2, and 3
- Describe types of pacemakers and their functions.
- Identify possible pacemaker malfunctions, their causes and appropriate actions.
- Recognize ECG strip representations of pacemaker malfunctions.
- Identify common pharmacologics (and their class if appropriate) used to manage dysrhythmias.
- Describe the appropriate use, treatment, guidelines and clinical impact for each drug.
