EKG Basics and Review
Athens CPR & Safety
An electrocardiogram — also called ECG or EKG
ECG or EKG — is often done in a health care provider’s office, a clinic or a hospital room. ECG machines are standard equipment in operating rooms and ambulances. Some personal devices, such as smartwatches, offer ECG monitoring.
Understanding and interpreting cardiac rhythms can prove to be more challenging than anticipated. Basic EKG Interpretation (EKG) equips students with knowledge essential for quickly identifying potential cardiac threats and responding appropriately — which promotes optimal patient outcomes. This course is for healthcare professionals working with monitored patients and ideal for those wishing to improve their ECG skills. This is also a great way to prepare for ACLS certification.
