This course is a Basic ECG Course, introducing the concepts of the ECG and the electrical conduction system of the heart. Topics covered include: 

  • Basic cardiac anatomy, physiology, and electrophysiology,
  • Normal and Abnormal cardiac muscle and electrical activity;
  • The ECG and its relationship to cardiac electrical conduction;
  • 3-lead ECG lead placement;
  • In-depth explanation of the ECG waveforms;
  • Heart rhythm analysis using 3-lead ECG;
  • Identifying and classifying heart rhythms;
  • Appropriate treatment options for various heart rhythms

This course is offered as a three-session course, and students must attend all three sessions to successfully complete the course. In addition, there is a manual that each student must purchase as part of the course.

CPR2U's 12-lead ECG course builds upon the foundations of the Basic ECG course, adding the ability to perform, interpret, and understand 12-lead ECGs to the student's repertoire. Additional topics covered include:

  • Obtaining the 12-lead ECG, including lead placement and troubleshooting;
  • Interpretation of the 12-lead ECG waveform, including the clinical significance of the rhythms;
  • Identification of the anatomical locations of the 12-lead ECG in reference to cardiac anatomy and electrophysiology, and their importance to clinical assessment of abnormal ECGs, including identifying ST-Elevated Myocardial Infarction (STEMI); and
  • Treatment options for various rhythms identified on the 12-lead ECG

among others. Prior experience with 3-lead ECG is essential to successful completion of this course, and it is assumed each student registering will have either already taken a 3-lead ECG course, or has taken CPR2U's predecessor class, Basic ECG

Completing the Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP) course involves several steps.
