ECG Interpretation


This CPD vet nurse course module looks in detail at interpretation of ECGs, starting with a revision of how the heart works, and its conduction system. It then demonstrates how to achieve the perfect ECG, and identifies some common artefacts. It then gives a logical approach to ECG interpretation, finishing with some cases and scenarios that may well be seen in the veterinary practice.

Learning Outcomes

  • An understanding of the heart.
