Speaker: Angele Davis, RN. MSN is an Assistant Professor of Nursing at Nicholls State University. She has been a critical care nurse and educator for the majority of her nursing career.
This educational activity is designed for RNs who work on telemetry units. The goal of this program is to increase participants’ knowledge of ECG interpretation and explore treatments associated with dysrhythmias. The participants will identify basic normal EKG waveform morphology; describe the normal physiology of cardiac conduction; distinguish between basic dysrhythmias and describe the distinguished features and associated treatments for each basic dysrhythmia. Additionally, the participant will apply concepts of ECG interpretation to provide safe, evidenced based, patient centered care.
Target audience: RN’s who work on a telemetry unit.
