The class will include anatomy and physilogy of the heart, conduction of the heart and analysis of sinus, atrial, junctional, heart block and ventricular rhythms. Pacemakers will be discussed. Homework and completion of an exam are required to obtain a certificate. Students must bring the current textbook to the class.
This course is designed for the person taking cardiac dysrhythmias for the first time. This may help the person who would like to be a monitor technician. Others may atttend )i.e. students, nurses, RCPs).
Student Learning Outcomes
- Define unique characteristics of cardiac systems related to anatomy and physiology of the heart
- Identify common variations in the electrical conduction of the cardiac systems
- Distinguish deadly heart rhythms in the electrical conduction of the cardiac system
