Description

For many nurses, the only chance they get to interpret ECG rhythm strips is when a patient is in distress.  A simple and systematic method of assessing an ECG strip can help in those times of crises.  In this seminar you will learn a practical and fun method for determining mean wave depolarization and how to use the axis wheel to determine quadrant and degree of axis.  You will learn how to rapidly recognize and interpret ECG strips and be able to act confidently to plan for care of your patients with abnormal rhythms.
