More About This CourseHide Description
Basic ECG Interpretation is a full beginner’s ECG course. This course teaches basic ECG reading and a simple step-by-step approach to ECG interpretation. You will learn all ECG criteria, but without being bogged down by the complex physiology.
The course is 1 hour long and shows simple methods for recognizing ECG abnormalities and understanding the ECG criteria. The course finishes with a straightforward and easy approach to reading ECGs from start to finish. This approach is demonstrated on a practice ECG. In total, there are 14 short videos. Each video can be re-watched as many times as you want can be re-watched as many times as you want to help solidify the information. The course is accessible 24/7 on any device for an entire year. Videos are succinct, with detailed illustrations and audio descriptions that go at a gentle pace for better comprehension. The videos are set up to feel as if a cardiologist is giving you one-on-one instruction.
Basic ECG Interpretation includes a Certificate of Completion, which can be presented to your workplace or institution to demonstrate competency. This course is not available for CME. Basic ECG Interpretation pairs well with Basic Arrhythmia Interpretation and can be bundled for a 15% savings. Other bundles are also available.
