ECC-6: Approach to Arrhythmias and ECG Interpretation in the Emergency Room

This is the 6th Course in the Emergency and Critical Care Program!
 
ECC-6: When you are working as an emergency clinician, you frequently encounter arrhythmias. When you see arrhythmias on your ECG monitor, it can be pretty scary. You start thinking that your patient will die soon.  You want to intervene to reverse the arrhythmia, but often times you don’t know what to do. Actually some arrhythmias don’t need any treatment at all even though They look really scary on your monitoring machine.
 
This course will cover the more common arrhythmias you can see in your practice. It will also cover which arrhythmias need immediate intervention or need no intervention at all.  Treatment of arrhythmias will also be discussed.
 
This course will not only be helpful to the emergency veterinarian but also to the general practitioner as arrhythmias can occur in many situations!
