12 Lead Interpretation Class - Course Description

 

The 12 Lead Interpretation Class will be offered in a three session progressive style program.

This class is designed for the care provider in a clinical setting to identify clinical significance when caring for a patient. 

12 lead interpretation can be a challenge. The class will be designed to maximize participant interaction with use of multiple rhythm strips to assist with interpretation

Below are the descriptions for each section of the class.

12 Lead Interpretation Session 1

ECG interpretation is a skill that requires an understanding of cardiac A&P to truly understand what you will identify when looking at a cardiac monitor.  This class is designed to allow the participant to take an active role through discussion and 12 lead interpretation

We will begin with a brief overview of Cardiac A & P, then progress into 12 lead acquisition goals, proper lead placement, and finish with waves – patterns and measurements that are imperative to correctly interpret a 12 lead ECG

A large portion of this class will be based on identifying: Ischemia – Injury – Infarction, noting ACS imitators and intervention for a patient with an ACS

Whether you are an experienced provider or new to ECG interpretation the class is designed to allow all participants to gain information that will be new or a relevant review of information that may have been forgotten.

Objectives:

After completion the participant will be able to:

  1. List the reason to perform a 12 lead ECG on a patient
  2. Perform correct lead placement for 12 lead acquisition
  3. Identify the criteria for Ischemia – Injury – Infarct patterns on the 12 lead ECG
  4. Identify 12 Lead “ACS Imitators”
  5. Describe the normal parameters for waves and measurements on an ECG strip.
  6. Develop a treatment plan for the patient in the setting of an ACS

Intended audience:  Any allied health professional that will be in a position to accurately interpret an ECG for a patient.

12 Lead Interpretation Session 2

This session will build on the first session.  We will begin with 12 lead interpretations, then progress into Right sided involvement.

We will go through simple axis deviation and cover VT – AVNRT – AVRT – SVT with abberancy.

Whether you are an experienced provider or new to ECG interpretation the class is designed to allow all participants to gain information that will be new or a relevant review of information that may have been forgotten.

Objectives:

After completion the participant will be able to:

  1. List the reason to perform a 13 or 15 lead on a patient
  2. Perform correct lead placement for a 13 or 15 lead ECG
  3. Identify the criteria for RVI
  4. Determine axis on a 12 lead ECG using the 2 lead approach
  5. Identify criteria for AVNRT – AVRT – VT
  6. Develop a treatment plan for the patient in the setting of a cardiac emergency

Intended audience:  Any allied health professional that will be in a position to accurately interpret an ECG for a patient.

12 Lead Interpretation Session 3

This session will build on the second session.  We will begin with 12 lead interpretations for “VT or Not”. 

We will then present 12 lead cases to include everything that has been covered as well as cases involving electrolyte emergencies with potassium – sodium – magnesium

There will be a small final evaluation for all participants.

Whether you are an experienced provider or new to ECG interpretation the class is designed to allow all participants to gain information that will be new or a relevant review of information that may have been forgotten.

Objectives:

After completion the participant will be able to:

  1. Understand criteria to differentiate VT from SVT with abberancy
  2. Identify findings that may be due to electrolyte emergencies
  3. Interpret and develop a treatment plan for patients with noted 12 lead ECG abnormalities

Intended audience:  Any allied health professional that will be in a position to accurately interpret an ECG for a patient.
