What is a 12 Lead ECG Basics Training Course?
The 1-Day 12 Lead ECG Basics Training Course is an intensive in-person course, designed to equip you with the thorough knowledge, skills and confidence to competently carry out ECG recordings, assessments and basic interpretations.
Electrocardiograms, also known as ECGs (and sometimes EKGs), are vital non-invasive procedures used across all types of healthcare settings. It’s a diagnostic tool, used to determine the rate, rhythm and electrical activity of the heart.
Our Basic ECG Course guides you through understanding the fundamentals involved in ECGs and their clinical applications, before showing you how to properly record an ECG to obtain high-quality readings. We’ll go through the common challenges you might face when carrying out ECGs while on the job, and how to work around these to ensure every reading is the best it can be.
We’ll then explore interpretations of these readings, covering the basic principles of electrophysiology. You’ll develop the fundamentals needed to read an ECG report and develop the ability to recognise heart rhythms and signs of arrhythmia.
