Cardiology: ECG interpretation

Wednesday 29 April 2015

The ECG is a commonly used investigation in primary care but confidence in interpretation can vary amongst GPs who are not necessarily reviewing them every day. A working knowledge of the ECG, including cardiac anatomy and electrophysiology, together with a practical approach to interpretation and an understanding of typical ECG abnormalities is essential for all practising clinicians.

In this interactive session our expert speaker, Dr Chris Arden, will cover:

  • Principles of electrocardiography and the cardiac conduction system
  • Comprehensive assessment of the ECG, including territories and axis
  • Common ECG abnormalities and their relevance
  • Case studies – the ECG in clinical practice

After taking part in this session, you should feel more confident in your knowledge of the fundamentals of ECG recording, reporting and interpretation, including classical ECG abnormalities. The session will also highlight the important role of the ECG as a tool for the diagnosis and treatment of your patients, whilst recognising the importance of interpreting the result in the light of their history and physical examination.

The webinar will also include a dedicated Q&A session and links to helpful resources. 

The webinar fee includes 30 day on-demand access to the video recording and presentation slides.

Individual fee: £35
