Nurses frequently monitor electrocardiograms. This includes nurses working in community clinics or neonatal, pediatric, or adult ICUs; emergency departments; and labor and delivery units, to name a few. Physicians expect nurses to understand the basics of cardiac monitoring as well as the ability to recognize important and lethal changes, such as arrhythmias.
In this course, we’ll break down the electrocardiogram into its individual units to help you better understand how to read and analyze cardiac strips. You’ll learn a step-by-step method that can be applied to the analysis of all strips, which will help you see what’s going on and spot abnormalities.
Additionally, you’ll learn about common abnormal electrocardiogram activity and rhythms, along with some cardiac diseases that are accompanied by certain electrocardiogram changes.
Thank you! I FINALLY have an understanding of how to assess an ECG. This series is excellent. I wish my school utilized them in teaching this topic. Professor Laws does a great job breaking down each piece, using repetition to reinforce concepts, and keeping the viewer engaged with just the right graphics and light-hearted inflection and attitude.
This whole lecture series on ECG interpretation is fantastic! Why don't my instructors teach this way?
Very simple language to give us the simple guide that sometimes even as medical students we need from the nurses. | am particularly like to review nurses' lectures. She just make simple what is so complicated in our medical books
Really well done. Graphics are very helpful in giving a clear idea of what is happening at each step of the ECG.
