Cardiac emergencies are stressful and time is of the essence. When you need to understand what’s going on with your patient, their EKG and chest x-ray can guide you to the necessary intervention to prevent further decompensation.

The complexity of these tools can be intimidating especially when the clock is ticking for your patient. But you don’t need to be an expert or wait for an expert to interpret them.

Let our team of cardiac nursing experts guide you through this self-paced video training and gain the skills necessary to perform efficient and effective assessments, place lead lines, analyze EKG & x-ray results, and respond appropriately to each situation.

No matter your clinical role, there is something to be gained for all Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, RNs and other clinicians in this mastery course.
