Description

EKG/ECG Interpretation Explained Clearly is a course designed to clarify, review, and augment the training and understanding of clinicians in the field of electrocardiogram interpretation. ECG interpretation remains an effective and low-cost diagnostic tool, yet the utility of the ECG is limited by clinician training, understanding, and skill. This course focuses on clarifying key ECG principals and practical interpretation skills useful for clinical practice – particularly for those in primary care and emergency settings. This activity will promote improved patient outcomes in a wide range of therapeutic areas encountered by clinicians — from chest pain to syncope, from tachycardia to possible medication toxicity.

This CME course will utilize a combination of videos, quizzes, and systematic discussion of practice ECGs to effectively deliver the course content. The modules included in this course take a departure from the traditional slide presentation style lecture. Instead, the course is comprised of a series of video lectures aided by real-time instructor led chalkboard visuals. This method of learning allows for the subject matter to be broken down to the basics and is designed to increase learning and retention.
