EKG 102
– Blocks, Part II

Provide proper care to your patients with further diagnostic skills. New fascicular blocks, or the presence of a left bundle branch block, represent developing or underlying cardiac conditions that require a referral to cardiology. Learn how to diagnose these three patterns.

EKG 102 is another advanced course, which continues to build on principles taught inAnatomy of an EKG,EKG 100, andEKG 101. This course teaches the identification of left anterior fascicular blocks, left posterior fascicular blocks, and left bundle branch blocks.

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Identify and define left anterior fascicular blocks and left posterior fascicular blocks. 
  • Identify and define a leftward axis and poor precordial R wave progression.
  • Discuss and identify an early repolarization pattern.
  • Identify and define a complete left bundle branch block and an incomplete left bundle branch block.
  • Reinforce concepts taught in the previous course(s).
