Burn Through ECG

Friday, April 19
Classroom Session
Cardiology & Resuscitation (JEMS)

Would you like to know when it is time to tap your medic on the shoulder? This will be a crash course in reading electrocardiograms. It will describe the electrical conduction system of the heart and connect it to the ECG waveform. Then it will relate that electrical stimulus with the mechanical response. We will clarify dangerous rhythms vs. normal rhythms. By the end, you will have a better sense of what is happening with your cardiac patient and what to expect next.  Having an understanding of ECG rhythms will make you an even more valuable asset on a medical aid.
