Cardiac Care Concepts: ECG Interpretation Explained Seminar is organized by Ausmed Education Pty Ltd and will be held from Oct 21 - 22, 2021 at Rydges Sydney Central, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Accreditation CPD Hours: 11h 45m Why Attend: Does your work require you to perform 12-lead ECGs? Do you feel confident in interpreting basic and advanced cardiac rhythms, and recognising ECG changes? Is it time you had a refresher on the use of ECGs? If so, then these two highly evaluated study days are for you. This seminar will bring you up-to-date and refresh your knowledge on this key component of a cardiac assessment. It includes: • A review of the relevant anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology that are key to cardiac function • Basic and advanced interpretation of a standard 12-lead ECG • How to recognise ECG changes that suggest acute cardiac injury • What life-threatening arrhythmias look like and the actions you should take • Unusual ECG abnormalities and other advanced concepts Need for Program: The 12-lead ECG remains a cornerstone of cardiac assessment. Nurses are increasingly involved in both performing and evaluating ECGs. However, interpretation can be difficult due to the complex nature of the underlying pathology and its manifestation on an ECG. Attending this seminar will build on your existing knowledge and assist you to understand ECGs and therefore improve patient outcomes. Purpose of Program: The purpose of this seminar is to provide all nurses with an opportunity to learn how to perform and interpret a high-quality diagnostic standard 12-lead ECG as part of an overall cardiac assessment, and to improve patient outcomes for people who display complex cardiac arrhythmias by increasing the ability to understand and interpret advanced ECGs. Learning Outcomes: • Apply an understanding of normal cardiac function and electrophysiology to a cardiac assessment • Discuss the nursing actions required for patient preparation and the recording of a diagnostic standard 12-lead ECG • Determine the cause of complex cardiac arrhythmias and how to identify them on ECG traces • Appraise and consolidate skills in basic and advanced ECG interpretation and the differentiation of abnormal cardiac rhythms through case discussion and practice.
