Basic ECG Review Course

The classroom based, Facilitator-led course is designed to review basic electrocardiogram (ECG) knowledge for treating cardiovascular emergencies.

The course is intended for certified or non-certified, licensed or non-licensed professionals that work in the field of healthcare and are responsible for participation in cardiac evaluation and/or resuscitation.

Common participants of this course include physicians, nurses, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, respiratory therapists, physical and occupational therapists, physician assistants, dentists, residents and fellows, medical students, and others who will work in an acute care, surgical, or hospital settings.

This course is commonly taken as a review of material prior to enrolling in ACLS or PALS training for those healthcare providers who do not participate in resuscitation or ECG interpretation on a regular basis.

This course includes the following:

  • Cardiac Anatomy and electrophysiology
  • Basic Rhythm Analysis
  • Rhythm Strip Interpretation Practice
  • Resuscitation Treatment Algorithms (ACLS)
  • Basic ACLS drugs and usage
  • Integrating basic drug pharmacology into ACLS algorithms

This course is designed to help students grasp the basics of ECG’s as directly related to helping them succeed in the AHA Advanced Cardiac Life Support Course.

ACLS – Advanced Cardio Life Support Provider Course

Course Length: 12 Hours

Prerequisites: The ACLS Course covers extensive material in a short amount of time so you will need to prepare for the course beforehand by reading the course materials.

 Course Overview: This advanced course highlights the importance of high-performance team dynamics and communication, systems of care, recognition and intervention of cardiopulmonary arrest, immediate post-cardiac arrest, acute dysrhythmia, stroke, and acute coronary syndromes. This course presents the skills and didactic information needed to handle a cardiac arrest, events that may lead to a cardiac arrest, and events that follow a cardiac arrest. The core of this course is the evaluation and management of the first 10 minutes of a witnessed, adult, ventricular fibrillation cardiac arrest. Other essentials of the course are contained in the 10 core ACLS cases: respiratory arrest, pulseless ventricular / ventricular tachycardia (VF/VT) treated with an AED, VF/VT refractory to initial defibrillation, pulseless electrical activity, asystole, acute coronary syndromes, bradycardia, stable tachycardia, unstable tachycardia, acute ischemic stroke and ROSC.

AHA Student Provider Manuals: Current American Heart Association books/materials are required for all courses and students must have them available for use before, during and after the course.
