Learning Outcomes

Understand the importance of interpreting an ECG as an extension of the patient's clinical presentation and medical history

 

Learn how to interpret abnormal ECG patterns

Appreciate normal and abnormal ECG variations in the context of varying pathologies

Interpret ECGs as a function of the patient's ongoing cardiac management

Recognise ventricular arrhythmias - ventricular ectopics, accelerated idioventricular rhythm, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation - effects on patient and treatment.

Appreciate supraventricular arrhythmias - atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, premature atrial contractions (PACs), junctional tachycardia - effects on patient and treatment

Appreciate the importance of the ECG

as a diagnostic tool (includes performing an ECG as part of a "well person" screen)

After the course

Recognise when a recording may be artifactual and therefore potentially subject to mis-interpretation

Understand how to resolve artifactually produced recordings

Appreciate (and intervene) when a patient may be at risk from a stress-test based ECG

 

Perform an ECG and interpret the recording in the context of a wide range of patient pathologies

Understand complex traces and their correlation to common and less common cardiac issues

Interpret recordings in association with the patient's medical history and clinical presentation

Recognise recordings that require further investigation

Understand the need to communicate your findings when urgent intervention is appropriate
