This workshop will take the participant through the steps of interpreting a 12-Lead ECG necessary for the primary care provider. This interactive workshop will include didactic content and case studies to increase participants’ knowledge and skills for interpreting 12-Lead ECGs in adult patients. During the workshop participants will practice hands-on activities to increase their confidence in applying a systematic approach to interpretation.

Learning Objectives:
After completion of this offering the participants should be able to:

  1. Review the principles behind the 12 views on the electrocardiogram (ECG) & how they align with frontal, augmented, & precordial leads.
  2. Interpret axis deviation, if present, on the 12-Lead ECG.
  3. Identify possible pathological events that explain abnormalities on the 12-Lead ECG.
  4. Utilize a systematic approach for interpreting 12-Lead ECGs
