So You Think You Can Interpret an EKG?

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Course Description

This Advanced EKG interpretation course is designed for emergency physicians seeking more experience in critical EKG analysis for acute care settings. The course will encourage systematic review of EKGs with emphasis of important differentials, including prolonged QRS, ST-segment elevation, and T-wave inversion.

The course will present an approach to difficult and challenging EKG assessment. Topics to be covered include a review of basic interpretation, ischemia and infarction, as well as various important EKG diagnoses. A series of challenging EKGs will be provided for discussion.
