Outline Content

An ECG is only useful as a screening tool when quality and adherence to guidelines exist.

The 12 lead ECG is an essential diagnostic tool in the management and treatment of ischaemic heart disease (Jevon, 2000).

When recording a 12 lead ECG it is important to ensure accuracy and standardisation in order to avoid misinterpretation of the ECG and mismanagement of the patient (Jevon, 2003).

Learning Outcomes

  • This workshop can be a standalone course or undertaken with Day 2.
  • Between days 1 and 2 you will need to complete a learning log.
