12 lead ECG course content from day 2 of FREC 4 course

Not only is this course great for new medics, it is also useful for IHCD Technicians, Paramedics and qualified FREC medics who want either a refresher or to fill in gaps in their knowledge.

We start with basics and go on to unpick what depolarisation/repolarisation in the heart wall does and how it causes deflections in an ECG. By the end of the 7-hour day, you should be confident at identifying the various types of myocardial infarctions and many other conditions, both acute and chronic.

We will also cover:

Normal sinus rhythm, Ventricular fibrillation, Ventricular tachycardia, Asystole, Pulseless electrical activity, Bradycardia, Tachycardia, First degree atrioventricular heart block, Second degree atrioventricular heart block type 1 (Wenckenbach), Second degree atrioventricular heart block type 2 (Mobitz), Third degree atrioventricular heart block (complete), Premature ventricular contractions (PVC), Accessory pathways, ST elevation/depression, R on T, SVT’s including: supraventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter.

It is strongly recommended that learners get hold of a basic ECG book and make a start on this subject before joining the course. This will make it much easier to understand the many extras that we will teach you.
