Rapid ECG interpretation – ED style

Tue 5th December @ 6:30 pm

THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED

Sydney North Primary Health Network (SNPHN) invites local GPs and Primary Care Nurses to build skills in the quick interpretation of ECG tracing. The 12 lead Electrocardiogram ECG remains a cornerstone of cardiac assessment and is among the most commonly ordered tests in the Emergency Department (ED). The ECG can provide clues for a non-cardiac high risk diagnosis, which we cannot afford to miss in our practice. This session, provided by Emergency Specialist physician, Dr Pankaj Arora will provide an interactive update on ECG interpretation to assist review and improve assessment of significant cardiac and noncardiac conditions in general and Emergency practice.
