The course begins with medical terminology relating to cardiac disorders, diagnoses and arrhythmias. Basic anatomy and physiology of the heart are taught so that there is knowledge of how the normal heart functions. The two systems of the heart, mechanical and electrical are covered. Interpretation of arrhythmias and how to measures rhythm strips. You are instructed on how to report and document changes in patient's rhythm strips and how to handle emergent arrhythmias. Telemetry/EKG is ways that help identify damage to heart muscle and the heart's ability to pump blood.
Telemetry/EKG helps identify damage to heart muscles and measure the heart's ability to pump blood. This course begins with medical terminology relating to cardiac disorders, diagnoses, and arrhythmias. Also covered in this course is basic anatomy and physiology of the heart so that students gain knowledge about how a normal heart functions. The two systems of the heart, mechanical and electrical, are covered as well as interpreting arrhythmias and measuring rhythm strips. Students are instructed on proper reporting and documenting of changes in a patient's rhythm strips and how to handle emergent arrhythmias. This is an entry-level course for anyone wanting to work in the area of healthcare.
