This two part course on 12-Lead ECG interpretation is intended for providers who know the basics about obtaining an electrocardiogram and want to know more about interpretation. This course assumes that a good understanding of interpreting a 3-Lead ECG and working knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the heart. Part 1 of the course describes the flow of electrical impulses through the heart, organization of an ECG tracing, and signs of myocardial ischemia and infarction that are detectable with an ECG. Part 2 of the course introduces other conditions detectable with an ECG and provides opportunities to practice. Note: users need to complete part 1 and part 2 course components to receive 2.0 hours of CECBEMS approved advanced CE hours.
