Description

The EKG and Chest X-Ray are the most commonly used procedures for diagnosing a wide variety of cardiac and respiratory conditions, yet even the most seasoned nurses struggle to master interpretation. Watch this live webcast and finally learn to recognize borderline and abnormal findings. In this information-packed program expert, Cheryl Hermann, will teach you easy-to-understand techniques to identify coronary and pulmonary problems you would have previously missed. Don't miss this opportunity to learn how to:

  • Analyze QRS axis to determine diagnosis
  • Contrast left anterior and posterior hemiblocks
  • Recognize the location of acute coronary syndromes
  • Interpret chest x-rays for differential diagnosis
  • Perform more efficient and effective patient assessments
  • And most importantly, respond to the patient emergencies associated with each of these changes!
