EKG 103
– Old Myocardial infarctions

Discovering an old myocardial infarction warrants further testing to identify damage and appropriate treatment. Know the next steps to take, what additional tests to order, and when to make a cardiology referral.

EKG 103 continues to advance participant’s EKG interpretation skills.Anatomy of an EKG, as well asEKG 100,EKG 101, andEKG 102 are all recommended prerequisites prior to taking EKG 103. This course focuses on identification of old myocardial infarctions on EKGs. These skills specifically include identifying Q waves and poor R wave progression.

In this course, you will learn to:

  • Learn the diagnostic criteria for identifying old myocardial infarctions.
  • Identify old myocardial infarctions in specific leads and in conjunction with cardiac anatomy.
  • Understand the importance of R wave progression and its role in old myocardial infarctions.
  • Reinforce concepts taught in the previous course(s).

This course is approved for 2.9 contact hours by the Kansas State Board of Nursing.
