What you'll learn

The use of electrocardiography has been increasing substantially day by day. All health care setups are bound to have ECG in their diagnostic areas and it has become important for health care professionals to gain knowledge on ECG and its uses. In cardiac emergencies, although primarily basic evaluation of vital signs and clinical information helps to an extent, performing electrocardiography (ECG) will be more helpful for immediate diagnosis and treatment of the patient. read more »»

Echocardiography or a cardiac echo or simply an echo is an important tool in assessing cardiac abnormalities in patients with suspected cardiac disease. It uses sound waves to produce live images of the heart. It is still a gold standard for the initial diagnosis of cardiac abnormalities in causalities and emergency departments. It can also detect the cardiac abnormalities in unborn babies (prenatal, natal, and postnatal abnormalities). There are different types of ECG which include transthoracic ECG, Transoesophageal ECG, stress ECG, 3D ECG, Fetal ECG, etc. Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is the most commonly performed cardiac ultrasound examination. These ECGs are safe and effective.

Health care professionals ECG is valuable for patients with coronary heart disease, systolic and diastolic dysfunctions, etc. Knowledge of various types of ECG, indications, contraindications, how to use it can help a health care professional diagnose better and can help in providing immediate and prompt treatment for cardiac emergency patients. Knowledge of ECG and EKG is very essential for health care professionals in the initial diagnosis and prognostic diagnosis of some of the cardiac abnormalities in an emergency or primary care ward.

Therefore, this course module teaches you how to prepare for, record, and interpret a 12-lead ECG. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers a scenario that tests your ability to interpret a 12-lead ECG.
