  • Take the Fear and Intimidation out of ECG Interpretation!
  • Quickly and Confidently Identify Changes in a Patient’s Cardiac Status
  • Step-by-Step Systematic Approach GUARANTEED to Improve Your Skills
  • Don’t Miss this Opportunity to Become a Cardiac Expert

The ECG is the most commonly-used procedure for diagnosing a wide variety of cardiac conditions, yet even the most seasoned nurses struggle to master interpretation. Attend this seminar and finally learn to recognize borderline and abnormal tracings. In this information-packed program expert, Cynthia L. Webner, will teach you easy-to-understand techniques to identify acute coronary syndromes, bundle branch blocks and challenging rhythms you would have previously missed. Through hands-on practice, learn how to look at and analyze:

  • QRS axis to help determine diagnosis
  • Contrast left anterior and posterior hemiblocks
  • Recognize the location of acute coronary syndromes
  • Differentiate LBBB versus RBBB and their significance
  • Find chamber enlargements
  • And most importantly, respond to the patient emergencies associated with each of these changes!
