This course is designed to train students to set up and run a 12 lead ECG and attach a Holter monitor. Instruction is provided in the anatomy and physiology of the heart and terminology common to the cardiovascular system. Interpretation of ECGs includes heart rate, basic rhythm strips, and the identification of rhythm abnormalities. Students are trained to recognize changes in ECGs, heart blocks, hypertrophy, infarction, and emergency situations and that require immediate action. Hands-on-training is an integral part of this training.
