Basic Cardiac Arrhythmias

Code: NURS8115

Course description

Diseases of the heart affect a large percentage of the North American population. Members of health care professions need to maintain up-to-date knowledge of the most common basic arrhythmias to practice effectively. This course provides an introduction to basic arrhythmias covering topics such as cardiac physiology, lead placement, identification of sinus rhythms, mechanisms of common arrhythmias, pacemaker rhythms and life-threatening arrhythmias. Significant nursing interventions to deal with these arrhythmias will be addressed. The solid theoretical base derived from this course is useful for those requiring a formalized introductory course, a review of basic arrhythmias or as the first course toward a certificate program in Cardiovascular Nursing or Critical Care Nursing
