Order and Disorder Electrophysiology Training Program

Many course categories will soon be available for study.  Courses in each category are numbered, and must be completed in order.  Choose link on left to access full course description of course modules that are available or will be within in the next two weeks.

These courses have been approved by an AACN Certification Corporation-approved Provider (#12190 & 12851) (Critical Care Ed) under established AACN Certification Corporation guidelines.  They are also approved by the California Board of Nursing (CEP 12206).

The Basics-is a course covering electrophysiologic principles, review of basic arrhythmias, 12 Lead EKG principles, antiarrhythmic drugs and drugs used for sedation, EP lab set-up, indications for electrophysiologic testing, the basic steps of an EP study, and syncope.  The intended participant for this course is staff who have worked in electrophysiology labs or industry for less than one year or those who want a solid review or foundation in basic electrophysiology.

Course Objectives: Upon completion of this program the learner will be able to...

1. Recall fundamentals of basic electrophysiology, including cellular physiology, anatomy and physiology of the conduction system and mechanisms of arrhythmias.

2. Calculate axis and identify bundle branch block on a 12-lead EKG.

3. Discuss elements of the typical electrophysiology laboratory physical plant and equipment used.

4. State the types of EP studies and the objectives of each.

5. Be familiar with the indications for EP testing and the common clinical scenarios meeting these criteria.

6. Discuss the various responses to Head-up Tilt Testing.

7. State a systemic approach to interpreting electrograms.

12 Lead EKG Course-The intended participant for this course is hospital staff responsible for EKG interpretation. This course provides an overview of the basics.

Course Objectives-1.Provide a firm knowledge of components of the normal 12 Lead EKG; 2. Introduce basic components of 12 lead EKG used to assess pathology.

Participant Objectives-Upon completion of the program the learner will be able to:

1. Identify normal coronary artery circulation and cardiac conduction system.

2. Identify the 12 standard electrocardiogram leads.

3. Determine the mean QRS axis from a 12 lead EKG.

4. Determine hypertrophies from a 12 lead EKG.

5. Identify EKG changes after myocardial infarction.

6. Identify the location of a myocardial infarction from a 12 lead EKG.

7. Differentiate between right and left bundle branch blocks.

Module 1 (12 Lead EKG-Module 1) reviews the materials that are taught in the beginning of the 12 lead EKG course. Anatomy, Physiology & Basics of Electrophysiology.

Module 2 (12 Lead EKG-Module 2) looks at the EKG complex in depth and presents an arrhythmia overview.

Module 3 (12 Lead EKG-Module 3) presents the normal 12 lead EKG, axis calculation and analysis of bundle branch blocks.

Module 4 (12 Lead EKG-Module 4) Chamber enlargement and MI
