CVT 2500C - EKG Interpretation w/Lab

This course relates electrophysiological principles of the EKG components to heart function. Students identify the individual components of the EKG complex and discuss the best lead placement for a diagnostic EKG versus lead placement for intra-procedural monitoring. After identifying rhythm rules, students differentiate between normal and abnormal rhythm strips and paced rhythms in correlation with known pathologies. Students demonstrate the ability to identify heart rhythms and arrhythmias, and gain the ability to set up a 12-lead EKG.
