EKG 101
– Blocks, Part I

Learn to identify important conditions that will affect your plan of care and prevent missed diagnoses. Properly diagnosing right bundle branch blocks and left ventricular hypertrophy will empower you to identify potential pulmonary problems, cardiomyopathies, and hypertension.

EKG 101 is a more advanced course that builds upon principles introduced inAnatomy of an EKG andEKG 100. This course teaches the identification of right bundle branch blocks, left ventricular hypertrophy, and ischemia patterns. Being able to pinpoint these key EKG concepts will enable you to obtain proper workups for your patients, as well as aid you in identifying hypertensive heart disease and aortic stenosis.

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Identify and define incomplete right bundle branch blocks and complete right bundle branch blocks. 
  • Identify and define left ventricular hypertrophy. 
  • Identify ST-T wave abnormalities/ischemia pattern on an EKG.
  • Discuss and define the morphology and duration of P waves.
  • Reinforce concepts taught in the previous course(s).

This course is approved for 2.4 contact hours by the Kansas State Board of Nursing.
