Electrocardiogram (ECG) – Med-Surg Nursing

by Prof. Lawes

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.
