The electrocardiogram offers immediate information regarding the stability of our patient’s ability to properly perfuse. Many in the profession still struggle to interpret EKG and make sound clinical decisions based on their patient’s EKG. This course will help you to integrate your patient’s EKG findings \into your Physical therapy Plan of care. You will practice calculating a patient’s rate, rhythm, axis and regularity using EKG strips. The course objectives will be met through the use of lecture and practice lab interpreting EKG. You will come away from this course with valuable tools to better work with all of your patients. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
