Thursday, 7 September 2017
08:00-17:00

Course Description

The ability to interpret the electrocardiogram (ECG) is a life-saving skill, but ECG training in most specialties only teaches the basics. Through a series of mini-lectures and multiple case-presentations, the speaker will teach the audience an assortment of ECG pearls that will elevate their ability to interpret ECGs to the a significantly higher level, and he will also discuss many of the common pitfalls that can lead to disastrous outcomes. Whether members of the audience are new residency graduates or seasoned physicians, they are going to learn new and useful information that will truly make a difference in patient care and will save lives!

Credit Designation Statement
The American Academy of Emergency Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 6.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
