ECG education for healthcare professionals
A sound understanding of electrophysiology and the ability to interpret an electrocardiogram is one of the basic necessities of cardiac care. The electrocardiogram is an essential diagnostic tool in many clinical environments including the hospital ward, emergency department and the general practitioner’s rooms, where making a rapid assessment of a cardiac tracing is critical. The ECG tutorials & exercises, authored by GenesisCare Chief Medical Officer – Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist Dr Daniel Cehic through e-medici’s Voltaire, is designed to help develop these skills.
The tutorials contain thirty chapters which guide the user through the essential and relevant information on electrophysiology of the heart. The normal and abnormal structures and functions are described, as are some of the management options.
*Please note, not all tutorials feature pictures as they were developed in an older format, however despite the tutorial limitations, the content is generally useful.
More than 130 ECGs are available for a Healthcare professional to interpret. The user is invited to go through each ECG in a structured manner and is then provided with feedback as to the appropriateness of their selections, with information provided on the abnormalities identified.
