Syllabus

The electrocardiograph (also known as electrocardiogram) or ECG is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure, commonly used to assess people with known or suspected heart disease, in a variety of healthcare settings. Competent recording, reading and interpretation is vital to ensure safe and effective care, yet ECGs are commonly undertaken by unqualified and junior staff, who have received little training. Gain an introduction to ECG assessment and interpretation This free online course will equip you with an introductory understanding of ECG assessment and interpretation, which will support the further hands-on training that is needed to competently perform the ECG test in clinical practice. Over two weeks, you will be guided through a step-by-step approach to undertaking the procedure, including ECG lead placement, and how to deal with common challenges you may face in obtaining a high quality ECG reading. You will also explore the principles of electrophysiology, and how to recognise a normal heart rhythm, as well as signs of arrhythmia. You will learn through demonstrations and interactive animations, and be able to check your knowledge and deepen your understanding through a variety of quizzes and peer discussion.
