Summary:

As all prehospital providers know, the rapid and accurate interpretation of ECGs is paramount for good patient care. Their analysis of the patient’s ECG often determines the patient’s treatment pathway and sometimes the destination. It is important for all prehospital providers to be knowledgeable about dysrhythmia interpretation and to recognize ischemia and infarction.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education course is to understand the indications for obtaining an ECG, review basic electrophysiology, perform correct lead placement, and employ accurate interpretation of normal and abnormal ECGs. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Correctly demonstrate an ECG
  • Demonstrate what role the ECG and continuous cardiac monitoring play in the prehospital setting
  • Describe the basics of electrophysiology
  • Recognize normal and abnormal rhythms
  • Explain how to read an ECG with emphasis on ischemia and infarction
