ECG & Pharmacology
- Explain heart anatomy and basic electrophysiology
- Explain normal ECG measurements
- Recognize and understand basic arrhythmias
- Study basic ACLS drugs and usage
- Understand drugs, doses and routes of administration during cardiovascular emergencies
- Learn to integrate basic drug pharmacology into ACLS algorithms
This course is for healthcare professionals who participate in the management of cardiopulmonary arrest or other cardiovascular emergencies.
ECG recognition skills and drug treatment knowledge have been identified as key gaps in knowledge for healthcare providers. ECG & Pharmacology is a classroom-based course that the AHA has developed to bridge these gaps. The course is designed as a pre-course option for ACLS students who were identified through the ACLS Precourse Self-Assessment as needing to improve ECG recognition skills and/or drug treatment knowledge, or for ACLS students who in general need to refresh their skills and knowledge. This course is also intended for any healthcare provider needing to learn ECG recognition skills and/or pharmacology.
The adult ECG & Pharmacology Course is presented in a modular format and includes one module for ECG and one for Pharmacology. These modules can be taught together or separately. The learning model for this course uses an Instructor CD and Student Workbook. This course does not provide certification, but instead, is designed solely to enhance students’ ECG recognition and drug treatment knowledge. One day course.
The course is intended for anyone who needs basic knowledge in ECG recognition or who needs to understand the drugs used in a periarrest or cardiac arrest.
Students must participate in each module taught to be able to receive a completion certificate.
ECG recognition skills and drug treatment knowledge have been identified as key gaps in knowledge for ACLS students. AHA recognized that without strong competency in either ECG recognition or drug treatment knowledge related to the ACLS algorithms, achievement of ACLS certification for the healthcare provider is more difficult.
As a result, this course was created to address those knowledge gaps and serve as a precourse option for ACLS students who have been identified through the ACLS Precourse Self-assessment as needing to improve ECG recognition skills and drug treatment, or for ACLS students who in general need to refresh their skills and knowledge. It was also created for anyone wanting to gain knowledge in ECG recognition and pharmacology.
