Description

Cardiac dysrhythmias can be benign or life threatening. The ability of nurses to rapidly recognize potential lethal rhythms is critical when providing care to patients in emergency departments, acute or critical care units, or outpatient settings. This program begins with information about the normal physiology of the heart and how aberrations can cause a variety of pathologies. There is a detailed discussion on rhythm strip interpretation, which includes explaining each of the waveforms as well as measuring the intervals between them. Finally, an analysis of a normal sinus rhythm is demonstrated.

Objectives
After viewing this program, the learner will be able to do the following:

1. Explain the electrophysiologic properties of the heart.

2. Describe the heart’s electrical conduction system and how it affects the functioning of the heart muscle.

3. Define and measure the following on a 3-lead EKG rhythm strip:

a. P wave
b. PR interval
c. QRS wave
d. ST segment
e. T wave
f. QT interval

4. Calculate heart rate using a 3-lead EKG rhythm strip.

5. List the affects of the autonomic nervous system on the heart.

6. Assess normal sinus rhythm using the 7-Step Method.
