163926 - Registrar Series - ECG

  • : Online

Improve your confidence in rapid interpretation and description of ECG to colleagues in a friendly and supportive teaching environment. 

After completing this session you will be confident and comfortable to provide a succinct description of common important ECG patterns over the telephone to ED or Cardiology colleagues. 

The GPs ability to accurately diagnose key findings on the ECG is modest, however, the ability to appropriately refer based on clinical presentation is exceptional. Based on current findings , the interpretative function on ECG machines should be viewed with extreme caution. 

ECG provision and interpretation remains inconsistent in both primary and secondary care. Primary care practitioners are less experienced and less confident with ECG interpretation than cardiologists, and require support in this area. 

Relevance to General Practice

Developed for specifically for GP registrars, this workshop will focus on interpreting electrocardiogram (ECG) tests. 

The 12 lead ECG is a common and important diagnostic test available to GPs for the evaluation of patients who present with cardiac and other complaints. 

It is crucial for practitioners to apply their knowledge in order to identify common and rare abnormalities. 

Presented by Professor Rukshen Weerasooriya, this session aims to empower registrars in interpreting common ECG patterns along with rarer syndromes.
