What you'll learn

Arrhythmia is an area of cardiology often feared by generalists. This is the most commonly encountered cardiac abnormality globally and is one of the major cause of mortality and morbidity. It is affecting 2% of the general population and rising to 10% of those aged over 80 years. One in four individuals will experience arrythmias in their lifetime. Arrhythmia’s might be related to the inconsistent terminology used in different centers and countries; or perhaps because the most basic tool of diagnosis, the electrocardiogram (ECG), can at times seem the most dangerous.read more »»

Clinicians in many disciplines commonly face the problem of evaluating and treating patients with cardiac arrhythmia s. Basic evaluation and management principles are key to the initial approach to the patient with an arrhythmia. Automatic detection and classification of life-threatening arrhythmia plays an important part in dealing with various cardiac conditions. They can be diagnosed either by family physicians, cardiologists, pediatricians, general physicians etc. Knowledge on arrythmias and their effect on other parts of the body is essential to be known by other health care professionals other than specialized departments. Since arrythmias may lead to medical emergencies, learning in depth content on arrythmias will be worth learning.

Therefore, this course enlightens us on Learn an organized approach towards correctly diagnosing the most commonly encountered arrhythmias on ECG, Understand the main bradyarrhythmias; distinguish ECG features of various forms of sinus node dysfunction and AV block, Learn different ways of classifying tachyarrhythmias, causes of broad QRS tachycardia and learn to recognize them on ECG.
