This course will familiarize the student with basic anatomy and physiology of the cardiopulmonary system as well as electrophysiology of the heart. A large emphasis will be placed on gaining a fundamental understanding of the normal functions and electrical conduction of the heart. The student will learn the normal cardiac cycle as it relates to the 3 - lead ECG and will become knowledgeable of the parts that make up the ECG. Students will learn how to approach the assessment of rhythms and will begin to become familiar with some of the more common rhythms. A portion of the class will also be dedicated to making sure students understand basic, lifesaving CPR accompanied by the use of an AED. This course is for students with little or no knowledge of ECG interpretation.

The focus of this course is twofold. Students in the healthcare field who are being required or will be required soon to take ACLS and/or PALS may want to consider this course as preparation/review for the aforementioned courses. Providers with a previous understanding of basic ECG interpretation may consider taking this course for review and/or to deepen their current knowledge. This course also serves as a bridge to the 12 lead ECG course. Students with little or no knowledge of ECG interpretation should take the Level I – Basic ECG Interpretation course first before considering this course as it will build off the previous. Students will come to a more in depth understanding of anatomy and physiology of the heart and electrophysiology. Students will begin to interpret more advanced rhythms and abnormalities still focused on the 3-lead view. This course will also begin to introduce clinical treatment of certain rhythms to include electrical and pharmacological interventions.

Unlike the Level I and Level II courses, this course will introduce and familiarize the student with basic 12 lead ECG interpretation. The student will become familiar with the parts of the 12 lead, how to place electrodes for the 12 lead, and how to approach interpretation. Information covered will include but is not limited to rhythm identification, axis identification, R wave progression, ST elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI), left and right bundle branch blocks (LBBB/RBBB), other STEMI mimickers, basic treatments, etc. It is expected students already have at least an intermediate understanding of 3 lead ECG interpretation. It is recommended, but NOT required, that the student take Level I and Level II ECG Interpretation, assuming the student can pass the pre-course exam that is required for all who wish to take the 12 lead ECG course. Students must pass the pre-course exam with a score of 70% or greater to take the 12 lead ECG course.

  • Physiology of life and death
  • Scene assessment
  • Patient assessment
  • Airway
  • Breathing, ventilation and oxygenation
