Rhythm Objectives

Course Description: The Basic Rhythm course is designed to give the learner a basic understanding of ECG’s. The course covers the basic anatomy of the heart including the electrical conduction system. The course covers the basics of the ECG complexes and the determination of the Basic Cardiac Rhythms that can be seen.

Course Content:

  • Anatomy: basic anatomy including the heart, valves, blood vessels, conduction system
  • Electrophysiology: depolarization and repolarization
  • ECG-complexes: P wave, PQ interval, QRS complex, ST segment, T wave, J point
  • Premature complexes: Premature atrial, junctional, and ventricular complexes, ventricular multigeminy
  • Ventricular complexes: Ventricular escape complexes, run of PVC’s, sustained/non-sustained VT
  • Rhythm analysis: Sinus rhythm, atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, VT, torsades de pointes, VF, blocks
  • Determination of rate: Determination of bradycardia, tachycardia, regular and irregular rhythm
