About the session:
The analysis of rhythm strips is an important part of the care of cardiac patients. This seminar reviews the physiology involved in the electrical system of the heart and then explains the mechanism behind the formation of rhythms. The session incorporates not only rhythm recognition but also clinical presentations and potential treatment modalities used in clinical practice today. An extensive handout is included with a multitude of strips. Dynamic rhythm recognition and case study review is also used.
(Please note: This seminar is a comprehensive rhythm review for participants who have a basic understanding of dysrhythmias. For facilities needing beginning rhythm recognition, alternate sessions can be provided with additional instruction and practice sessions.)
