The 7+2 step plan teaches you how to approach ECG interpretation in a systematic way, which prevents missing important aspects. This part of the course starts with a powerpoint presentation and finishes with a quiz.
- The Conduction System
Abnormal heart rhythms.
When the cardiomyocytes are not sufficiently perfused with oxygen and nutrients to perform
- Hypertrophy and dilatation
Recognize left and right ventricular hypertrophy on the ECG and learn how atrial dilatation influences the P wave.
In this topic we will discuss the influence of non-cardiac disease and devices on the ECG. Examples are pulmonary embolism, electrolyte disturbances and pacemakers.
- Technical problems
Learn how technical issues, such as noise, lead displacement and filter settings can strongly influence the interpretation of an ECG.
