ECG Workshop, Part 1 & Part 2 provides you with the ability to interpret the electrocardiogram (ECG) which is an essential skill for doctors.

SKU: N/A Categories: , ,

However ECG training in most specialties only teaches the basic knowledge. Through a series of focused lectures and case-presentations we will discuss multiple ECG key points with real cases that will elevate your confidence and ability to interpret ECGs to a higher level. We will also discuss some of the common pitfalls that can lead to adverse outcomes.

The workshops are divided in Part 1 and Part 2 where we will cover a mix of practical patient presentations, mainly in the emergency department where the ECG is the first and probably the most important investigation tool to make a decision about your patient’s management and disposition.
This course is relevant for those who work or wish to work in the Emergency Department, Cardiology, Critical Care and General Practice.

  1. Introduction: Why is the ECG important
  2. The normal 12 lead ECG
  3. Recognising Acute Coronary Syndrome: the classic ECGs
  4. Recognising subtle manifestations of ACS: the difficult ECGs
  5. Tachy-arrhythmias
  1. Summary and key learning points: workshop Part 1
  2. Brady-arrhythmias
  3. Cardiac Arrest: rhythm recognition
  4. Mimics of Acute Coronary Syndrome: Pericarditis, Hyperkalemia, Benign early repolarisation
  5. Syncope and the ECG

At the completion of this workshop students would have gained knowledge about ECG reading.
Also, the participant will receive a certificate for attending the workshop.
Completion of this workshop entitles the student to 40 Category 1 points by the RACGP QI&CPD Program in the 2014 – 16 triennium,– Activity: 24346.

This course is conducted over two sessions and when finished will provide the participants with the opportunity to:

  • Identify the features of a normal 12 lead ECG
  • Effectively interpret 12 lead ECG’s showing myocardial schema, infarction and bundle branch blocks
  • Develop knowledge and skills in advanced cardiac rhythm interpretation
  • Recognise ECG signs that accompany a range of clinical conditions (syncope, electrolyte abnormalities, metabolic disturbances)
