It’s two o’clock on a Sunday morning and you are the Charge Nurse on a 24-bed telemetry/Med Surg Unit. Mrs. J, in room # 312, is on telemetry and her low heart rate monitor alarm goes off.
You assessed her and note she is hemodynamically compromised with a BP of 74/42, cool and clammy skin and complaints of dizziness. What is the rhythm strip telling us about the patient? Do you know what do next?
Know what clues to look for and what steps to take by attending this information-packed seminar. Leave with a clear understanding of and be able to recognize basic and advanced cardiac dysrhythmias. Learn the systematic approach to EKG interpretation, with advanced skills in differentiating ischemia from infarct on the EKG, identifying STEMI imposters and many other causes of abnormal EKGs. Use these skills to improve patient outcomes for patients like Mrs. J and others you see in practice by being able to anticipate treatments and complications.
- Relate the pathophysiology of supraventricular arrhythmias and accurately identify.
- Examine the 12-Lead EKG and diagnose the type of MI and the coronary artery involved.
- State the treatment modalities of Acute Coronary Syndrome.
- Differentiate STEMI imposters from NSTEMI upon EKG evaluation.
- Differentiate wide complex tachycardias.
- Identify three common STEMI imposters and differentiate between benign and injury patterns of ST segment elevation.
