The Advanced 12- Lead EKG class is for the healthcare professional that already knows how to read 12-lead EKG's, but wants to get a better understanding of the depth of assessment the 12-lead EKG provides.
This course will provide information about recognition of coronary artery occlusions that would not qualify as a STEMI, but still need PCI. A pre-STE sign for inferior MI's, ways of identifying MI's in the presence of a left bundle block, recognition of hypothermia, hypo/hypercalcemia, Hypertrophic Obstructive Cardiomyopathy, Brugada Syndrome, A-fib with WPW, large pulmonary embolisms, and other potentioal fatal disorders that show up on a 12- lead EKG will be discussed.
There is a pre-course group of 12-lead EKG's to interpret (with no minimum score) prior to attending the 8 hour class. 8 hours of CE will be given upon class completion.
