A two-day course introducing the
basic concepts of arrhythmia
recognition and interpretation.
This seminar is geared to those who
are new to cardiac care and to
experienced professional alike. It
provides an in depth overview of
telemetry and helps non-cardiac
specialists understand why it is
important to monitor a heart's
electrophysiology and to understand
what it all means. Every attempt is
made to simplify the complexities of
telemetry and point out common
mistakes so they can be avoided.
covers basic cardiac terminology,
anatomy related to the heart,
electrophysiology, an introduction
of monitoring principles, and an
analysis of common and potentially
lethal dysrhythmias including sinus,
atrial, junctional, and ventricular
arrhythmias, heart blocks,
pacemakers and special
activities include lecture,
interactive discussion, analysis of
ECG strips and learning evaluation.
Seminar design allows time for
practice of systematic approach to
rhythm interpretation. Certificate
of Completion is awarded for 100%
attendance and successfully passing
