Course description: 

The 12-lead electrocardiogam (ECG) is a routine noninvasive study, and practitioners in the cardiac cath or electrophysiology lab should have a thorough understanding of this simple, yet effective, tool. This in-depth presentation covers all aspects of detecting cardiac arrhythmias with a 12-lead ECG. Following a detailed description of the heart's conduction system, Jeffrey Stiffler, B.A., AST, RCIS, CCDS, CEPS, explains ECG setup, including best practices for lead placement. He also covers various heart arrhythmias, such as atrial flutter and ventricular tachycardia, and their appearance on the ECG.




Course objectives: 

  • Describe the normal anatomy and physiology of the heart's conduction system, including the sinoatrial node (SA), atrioventricular (AV) node and ventricular conduction structures.
  • Explain the parts of the electrocardiogram (ECG) strip.
  • Describe proper lead placement.
  • Name the various types of leads and lead recordings.
  • List the basic intervals and normal ranges for the 12-lead ECG.
  • Discuss common heart arrhythmias, including atrial flutter, AV node and atrioventricular re-entry tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia.
  • Identify common heart arrhythmia patterns on the ECG.
