Description

Do you know how to recognize stable and unstable EKG rhythms? Can you quickly identify which ECG rhythms are most dangerous? Are you confident you will catch EKG life threatening changes? Most medical surgical nurses only know EKGs at a basic level and lack the tools to rapidly intervene when the rhythm changes at a moment’s notice. This session uses a case study approach in which the participant will analyze case studies and correctly identify rhythms, causes and treatments. Master EKG rhythms and become an EKG resource on your unit!
