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 anyone 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.

Paramedics also interested in ECG interpretation are very welcome.

Seminar Learning Outcomes

In this seminar you will:

    • Identify the three essential parameters (values) that assist with analysis of a rhythm strip.
    • Demonstrate how to work out these three parameters: PR interval, QRS width, 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

You will learn:

  • The foundation of interpretation of sinus rhythm
  • The presentation and pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation
  • Two potentially life-threatening complications of atrial fibrillation
  • Interpretation of PEA (Pulseless Electrical Activity) and VT (Ventricular tachycardia)
  • The treatment of PEA and VT according to the Australian and New Zealand Committee of Resuscitation guidelines (ANZCOR)
  • 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
  • The three common tachycardias seen on telemetry:
    • Sinus tachycardia
    • Supraventricular tachycardia
    • Ventricular tachycardia
  • Sudden cardiac death in the youth
  • Hereditary Long QT interval syndrome
  • How a patient with Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) presents and the gender issues on presentation
  • The common errors that are made in performing a 12 lead ECG
  • The difference between angina, anterior and inferior MI on the 12 lead ECG
  • Wellen’s syndrome
  • SCAD – Spontaneous Coronary Artery Dissection
  • The presentation of Takotsubo syndrome
