EKG monitoring is becoming more common in inpatient and outpatient care settings as well as emergency and critical care areas. Nurses and other healthcare professionals are responsible for cardiac patients including monitoring and interpreting cardiac dysrhythmias. They must develop critical thinking skills required to quickly and accurately identify potentially life threatening conditions. This EKG course is designed for these healthcare professionals wishing to enhance their level of education to include anatomy and physiology of the cardiac system, EKG electrode placement, equipment, and recognition of lethal and non-lethal dysrhythmias. A thorough understanding of the cardiac conduction system, circulatory system, lay out of the EKG waveforms to include the P-Wave, R-Wave, QRS Complex, T-Wave, as well as the PR Intervals, ST Segments, and the normal timings of each area is essential to EKG recognition and best patient outcomes. This course will also describe and discuss the different pacemakers, their uses, and troubleshooting techniques.


Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
1.Explain what an EKG is and the importance of this diagnostic
2.Identify the Skills needed to perform an ECG
3.Identify and Recall the structures of the heart, its valves, and chambers
4.Explain the Cardiac Cycle
5.Identify and describe the components of the Conduction System
6.Identify each part of the EKG Waveform
7.Describe which conduction activity produces the EKG wave forms
8.Identify the different leads
9.Calculate patients HR using the EKG
10.Identify the Anatomical Landmarks in the EKG process
11.Identify artifact and the causes thereof
12.Differentiate between an EKG and cardiac monitoring
13.Explain the process of identifying the rhythm
14.Identify the components of the rhythm
15.Describe the process and criteria to determine a Dysrhythmia
16.Identify the Normal Sinus Rhythm
17.Identify the Sinus Bradycardia Rhythm
18.Identify the Sinus Tachycardia Rhythm
19.Identify the Sinus Dysrhythmia
20.Identify the Sinus Arrest rhythm
21.Describe the variety of Junctional Dysrhythmias
22.Describe the variety of Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT)
23.Describe the variety of Heart Blocks
24.Describe the variety of Ventricular Dysrhythmias
25.Describe the variety of Pacemakers
