Program Purpose / Objectives
An Overview of Clinical ECG and Arrhythmia Interpretation plus Arrhythmia Management for the Primary Care Physician.

RHYTHM INTERPRETATION REVIEW
Review of the Clinical Approach to ECG Interpretation Arrhythmias – beginning with the Basics, and advancing to Intermediate Level and beyond. Among the topics covered in addition to the basic rhythms are Narrow and Wide Tachycardias, Nodal Rhythms, MAT, AIVR, Vagal Maneuvers, AV Blocks.
OVERVIEW OF ECG INTERPRETATION
Review of the Systematic Approach to ECG Interpretation – with attention to Basic Rhythms, Intervals, Axis, Chamber Enlargement, Bundle Branch Blocks, Hemiblocks, Ischemia/Infarction, Electrolyte Disorders, Pericarditis, WPW, Technical Errors, and Normal Variant Patterns. Numerous illustrations; Clinical relevance is stressed.
MANAGEMENT OF CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS
This session will refine arrhythmia diagnosis concepts covered in Sessions #1,2 - and clinically apply these concepts to a representative series of Arrhythmia Case Studies from office and hospital settings. Practical assessment and management of each case will be discussed.
PRACTICE 12-LEAD TRACINGS
Each participant will have the opportunity to work through 20 representative Practice 12-Lead ECGs in the Workbook they will receive. We’ll then work through these tracings together during this session. Detailed Explained Answers are provided in the Workbook that participants may keep.
ACLS: PRACTICE CODE SCENARIOS
Each participant will have the opportunity to work through 4 involved Practice Code Scenarios in Cardiac Arrest in the Workbook they will receive. We’ll then work through each case together during this session. Detailed Explained Answers are provided in the Workbook that participants may keep. This is not an ACLS Course – but ACLS Guidelines will be reviewed.
OFFICE ECGs – A Clinical Approach
Further reinforcement of the concepts covered in Sessions #3,4 and 7,8 by means of a series of 12-Lead Tracings I’ve collected as a Primary Care Clinician at the Bedside. We’ll review each tracing in detail)

TravelSafe.comPlease visit TravelSafe.com for travel insurance information.

Cruise Line cancellation policies are strictly enforced. For that reason, we urge all of our travelers to carefully consider whether travel insurance is a good value for them.

Certainly, if you have reason to think that "something might come up" that might force you to cancel, travel insurance is worth the cost of the premium. Examples we've seen in the past include ill or frail family members and changes in employment causing relocation.

If travel insurance is the right choice for you, we recommend TravelSafe. To visit their site and explore your options click here or on the link above. The cruise lines also offer travel insurance and we'd be happy to help you go that route if you'd prefer.
