ECG Interpretation in Primary Care (2021)

Do you lack confidence to read an ECG? Do ECGs make you unwell by giving you a headache or triggering a panic attack? There is a better way and it is this introductory course on ECG interpretation – just the major things you need to know to avoid missing serious disease.

Learning to read and confidently interpret an ECG is a valuable skill for assessing and treating patients with a wide range of acute presentations including chest pain, syncope, stroke and shortness of breath.

In this course we introduce an easy to learn approach to ECG interpretation that allows the clinician to quickly identify clinically significant findings such as acute myocardial ischaemia, arrhythmias, conduction block and serious biochemical disorder. The approach is highly practical and can be immediately applied to the clinical care of the emergency patient.

The course includes the following topics:

1. Introduction to a clinically based approach to ECG Interpretation

2. Some really basic ECG physiology

3. Why the P wave is often the clue to arrhythmias

4. How the QRS is useful to clinical practice

5. How to avoid missing the ECG clues to myocardial ischaemia
