Interpreting ECG results have become increasingly important in the treatment of cardiovascular disease. In this two-hour course, learn from Dr. Caroline Miller Reilly on how to interpret and apply the 12 Lead ECG in a clinical setting. At the completion of the course, learners will be able to understand the major components of a 12-lead ECG and how to interpret and apply this knowledge to patient care. The difference between VT, SVT, and aberrancy and criteria for LVH, fascicular and bundle branch blocks, and acute myocardial infarction will also be discussed.
