Program Purpose / Objectives
This program consists of an intense but enjoyable 14 hours of interactive Review and Practice on ECG (or EKG) & Arrhythmia Interpretation ‐ with focus on clinical application . There are 4 main topic areas:

Topic Area #1: ECG INTERPRETATION
Begins with the basics of the Systematic Approach to ECG Interpretation. Areas covered include Intervals, Axis/Hemiblocks, Chamber Enlargement, Bundle Branch Blocks, Ischemia/Infarction (including identification of the "culprit" vessel), Electrolyte Disorders, Pericarditis, WPW, Technical Errors, How to Use (or Not Use) the Computerized Interpretation Readout, and Normal Variant Patterns. Clinical relevance is stressed throughout.

Topic Area # 2: ECG REVIEW: Practice Tracings
Principles covered in Topic Area #1 are continually reviewed through the numerous Practice Tracings that are worked through in detail. Detailed explained answers are found in Dr. Grauer's books and Handout materials given to all participants. Questions are welcome!

Topic Area # 3: Arrhythmia INTERPRETATION
Begins with the basics of Rhythm Interpretation, which serves to catch up providers with less experience — while at the same time surprising even the most experienced interpreters with numerous clinical pearls along the way. Areas covered in addition to the basic rhythms are Narrow and Wide Tachycardias, Nodal Rhythms, MAT, AIVR, Vagal Maneuvers, AV Blocks/AV Dissociation (as well as mimics of AV Block), Aberrant conduction, and lots more.

Topic Area # 4: Arrhythmia Management/Practice
Principles covered in Topic Area #3 are thoroughly reviewed through Practice Tracings that are worked through in detail. Along the way — clinical concepts in arrhythmia management are covered, including diagnostic assessment of the patient with (or suspected of having) an arrhythmia. A practical approach to arrhythmia management is stressed, including clear guidelines for when to refer.

Special Gift:
Dr. Grauer will be providing each attendee with a very detailed course syllabus that includes five free pocket books, authored by him, which consolidate the educational material and contain Practice Exercises with detailed Explained Answers. There will be additional hard copy handout materials, as well as reference pdf files that cover all that will be discussed during Dr. Grauer's sessions.

Dr. Grauer's Pocket Brain Books You'll Receive (His GIFT to You! ):
  • ECG-2014-Pocket Brain Expanded book (navy blue)
  • A 1st Book on ECGs-2014 (baby blue)
  • 12-Lead ECG Practice Exercises (white)
  • ACLS-2013-Pocket Brain book (purple)

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.

Right on the Venetian Lagoon, Hotel Locanda Vivaldi opened its doors in 1999, providing 27 guest rooms, many of which have sweeping views of the lagoon. Rich Venetian brocade fabrics in majestic reds, blues, and golds adorn the walls as well as sofas and beds, putting visitors in a luxe environment without the luxurious price tag.
