NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION

Many, if not most, medical schools and residency programs are deficient in the amount of ECG interpretation instruction they provide. Most med school graduates are unprepared for handling cardiac cases or emergencies that require interpreting a 12-lead ECG. Too many rely on the ECG machine interpretation. Residency programs typically do not offer basic instruction in electrocardiography other than occasional presentations of complex ECGs that does little to further the practical skillsets of the residents. This is can be very dangerous.

 

This class is designed to take the person with no more than basic knowledge of ECGs and to expand that knowledge and skill through presentations not usually found in most lecture series. Not only are ECG patterns presented, but the cause of those patterns is also discussed in order to give each finding a link to the physical anatomy and physiology of the heart. Each participant should feel more confident in recognizing abnormalities – whether they understand what is happening or not. Too often serious abnormalities are simply not recognized and the patient has an unfortunate outcome. Just the ability to recognize an abnormality – with or without being able to diagnose it – can save a life.
