ECG & Pharmacology
Students will learn heart anatomy, basic electrophysiology, normal ECG measurements, basic arrhythmias and basic ACLS drugs and usage. The classroom-based, facilitator-led course is designed to improve electrocardiogram (ECG) recognition skills. This course is especially useful for students who plan on taking the ACLS course but are not proficient in ECG recognition. This course also covers pharmacology within the ACLS algorithms.
The ECG & Pharmacology course covers:
- Basic electrophysiology
- Normal ECG measurements
- Basic arrhythmias
- Administration of appropriate drugs within the ACLS algorithms
