“The fear and uncertainty of reading ECGs and telemetry is something I don’t need to feel anymore, now I have the confidence to apply Anne’s Famous 5 step process to interpret heart rhythms. If you feel anxious when faced with an ECG or telemetry monitor then this course will change all that!” – Jodie

SYnopsis

The growth of telemetry in both specialist units and general ward situations has heightened the Nurse’s responsibility to ensure their knowledge regarding cardiac arrhythmias and ECG interpretation is current and reflects best practice guidelines.

The content covered in this seminar is considered essential knowledge and clinical competence of any Nurse working in the areas of ward telemetry, coronary care, critical care, and emergency nursing. It is also key information for the Nurse working in other clinical areas who is wanting to upskill their knowledge on the interpretation of arrhythmias.

Understanding of the foundation of electrophysiology and the three parameters of measurements will aid the Nurse in recognition of any deviation from the normal cardiac rhythm.

Seminar Learning Outcomes

In this seminar, you will:

    • Identify the three essential parameters (values) that assist with the analysis of a rhythm strip
    • Demonstrate how to work out these parameters: PR interval, QRS width, and QT interval
    • How to interpret a 12-lead ECG
    • Explore the additional clinical scenarios of a drug overdose and post-myocardial infarction and what the Nurse would observe on a rhythm strip of that patient

  • The foundation of interpretation of sinus rhythm
  • The presentation and pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation

  • The importance of assertive communication in getting the best outcome for your patient
  • The warning signs of impending cardiac arrest on the telemetry monitor
  • The R-on-T phenomenon

Happy attendees

I just attended the Interpreting ECGs on the Gold Coast. Honestly, how good was that??! Totally loved it and lots of light bulb moments for me.

I will need to practice the arrhythmias and get more proficient at it but I have learnt so much.

Abby

Telemetry, Cardiac Arrhythmias and 12 Lead ECG Seminar | Gold Coast | 2023

The course was easy to follow due to the presenters clear passion for her subject. It was paced perfectly and every aspect was interesting and relevant. It has given me more confidence to begin to properly analyse why we are monitoring our patients and given me a good foundation to begin interpreting the rhythms.

The presenter [Anne] is easily the best thing about the event, and the infectious passion for the subject.

Telemetry, Cardiac Arrhythmias and 12 Lead ECG Seminar | Gold Coast | 2023

Anne made ECGs understandable. Excellent conference. I feel empowered with the ability to confidently read ECGs and GPs to review patients immediately if required. Thank you.
