Join Drs. Risa Roland and Ellen Davison for a two-part lecture series on ECG’s. This is a great refresher evening that will review the electrical activity of the heart, a planned approach to evaluating the ECG, and variations of normal ECGs. We will also discuss the common ECG abnormalities that plague us in practice and how to best evaluate and treat arrhythmias, whether acute or chronic.
ECGs in Review Part I: What are you looking at?
The objective of the lecture is to review the electrical activity of the heart, learn a step-wise plan to approaching ECG evaluation and to review normal ECGs as well as discuss variations on normal ECGs.
ECGs in Review: Part II: What should you do with what you’ve seen?
The objective of the lecture is to review the evaluation and treatment of common ECG abnormalities seen in practice. We will discuss history, clinical signs and cardiac and non-cardiac causes of these arrhythmias. We will also review the diagnostic and therapeutic approach taken once an ECG has been evaluated and discuss the common treatments used for emergency and chronic control of these arrhythmias.
