The course will combine theory and practice to provide instruction in all aspects of EKG technology and patient care. Students will learn about the anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular system, appropriate patient care, and how to properly conduct an electrocardiogram (ECG). The course will also provide students knowledge as to how to diagnose different rhythms discovered through ECG tests. Additional topics that students will learn about is the use of pacemakers as well as ECG cardiogram artifacts and the 12-leag ECG and acute myocardial infarction. Upon completing this course, students will have gained knowledge and confidence to be able to move one step closer to take either the AMCA EKG Technician Certification (ETC) national certification exam or the NHA EKG Technician Certification (CET) national certification exam.
