About the session:
The analysis of rhythm strips is an important part of the care of cardiac patients. This seminar reviews the physiology involved in the electrical system of the heart and then explains the mechanism behind the formation of rhythms. The session incorporates not only rhythm recognition but also clinical presentations and potential treatment modalities used in clinical practice today. An extensive handout is included with a multitude of strips. Dynamic rhythm recognition and case study review is also used.
(Please note: This seminar is a comprehensive rhythm review for participants who have a basic understanding of dysrhythmias. For facilities needing beginning rhythm recognition, alternate sessions can be provided with additional instruction and practice sessions.)
- Describe the physiology and clinical significance of electrical generation and conduction in cardiac tissue and abnormalities which may occur.
- Recognize the various types of slow rhythms seen in cardiac patients, the distinguishing ECG characteristics, clinical presentation, and appropriate management.
- Recognize the various rhythm patterns that can be seen in patients with temporary or permanent pacemakers.
- Identify and initiate appropriate treatment for patients in ventricular fibrillation or pulseless ventricular tachycardia.
- Distinguish between the characteristics of the various atrial dysrhythmias and appropriate treatment.
- Identify the characteristics of the wide versus narrow complex rhythms and appropriate treatment.
- State the appropriate differential diagnosis and treatment options in patients with pulseless electrical activity or asystole.
- Describe the causes, clinical presentation, rhythms, and initial management of patients in pulmonary edema and shock.
- Distinguish between several advanced dysrhythmias which may be seen in patients with coronary artery disease.
- Identify various cardiac dysrhythmias and appropriate interventions during a rhythm review session.
