Speaker: Karen Ellis, RN, BSN is the author of the textbook EKG Plain and Simple. She has worked in the coronary care unit for 14 years. Currently she is the Administrative Supervisor at Touro Infirmary in New Orleans.
This educational activity is designed for RNs who work are interested in or who are required to interpret 12 lead EKG readings. The goal is to enhance the learner’s ability to interpret 12 lead EKG’s. The participant will identify steps in interpreting 12 lead EKG’s and recognize blocks, ischemia and infarction in the patient’s EKG; identify left and right ventricle hypertophy; determine presence of miscellaneous effects; determine myocardial infarction and identify conditions that mimic an MI on the EKG. Although Ms. Ellis has authored an EKG text, she has agreed to deliver information without bias. All information will be presented objectively and with no attempt to sway participant to purchase any textbook (s).
Target audience: RN’s who work on a telemetry unit.
