Wheatbelt EMET Cardiac Emergencies 2016

Cardiac Emergencies Workshop: Pre-learning

WA Wheatbelt EMET Program

In this prelearning we will explore the assessment and management of the patients presenting with chest pain focusing on the clinical presentation and ED management of acute myocardial ischaemia. We introduce an approach for examining the ECG and explore the ECG findings in myocardial ischaemia. Finally we introduce an approach to the diagnosis of cardiac arrhythmias on the ECG.
