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.
As a result of completing this seminar, the nurse will be able to interpret cardiac rhythms, including some advanced dysrhythmias which may be seen in patients with coronary artery disease.
The nurse will also be able to recognize the clinical significance of the rhythms and potential treatment options
Participants taking this course should have a beginning understanding of dysrhythmias. The session is designed to build on the foundation the participant has and elevate the knowledge and interpretation level involving dysrhythmias.

Recent seminar participants had this to say about
“Comprehensive Rhythm Review and Clinical Application”
“We are very grateful to have this course brought to our hospital. It was an amazing class and the instructor was so calm, collected, and in tune with our nurses. She makes the learning process easier.”
“Instructor has an excellent way of making rhythms easier to understand. I loved all the clinical correlation to make it applicable to my practice and patients.”
“This was a great review which will enable me to provide better care for my cardiac patients. I finally understand some rhythms I had been having trouble with and didn’t quite understand. This brought everything together for me…recognition, assessment and treatment of dysrhythmias.”
“I enjoyed this class very much. It was a great refresher of many rhythms commonly seen and other rhythms I was not familiar with. The class reminded me of what I need to spend more time with to better the care I give to my patients.”
“Fantastic refresher course with advanced material presented to further my knowledge. Very interesting and educational AND presented in a way I could understand and use at the bedside!”
“I have been watching monitors for more than 20 years. I learned so much in this course regarding rhythm assessment, rhythms I didn’t know about and how I can use multiple leads in rhythm analysis. The clinical correlation was excellent in bringing it all together for patient care. Thanks!”
