This is a renewal course for the ACLS instructor.  Student must have a valid instructor card and be in good standing.

The Basic 12-lead EKG class is for the Healthcare Professional that knows how to interpret EKG rhythms on a single lead view and wants to get introduced to the basic assessment capabilities the 12-lead EKG provides.

This course will provide a review of cardiac anatomy and physiology, the importance of proper lead placement, and how to recognize probable improper lead placement on a 12-lead strip.  The course will cover axis deviations, atrial and ventricular enlargements, bundle branch blocks, and recognition of coronary artery occlusions that qualify as a STEMI.

For this class students may find Appendix C and Appendix D of Basic Arrhythmias, 8th edition by Gail Walraven to be helpful, though almost any basic 12-lead interpretation manual should be helpful.

Some electrolyte imbalances (such as Hyper and Hypokalemia), as well as touching on some advanced 12-lead tips (Smith-modified Scarbosa criteria, A-fib with WPW, Brugada Sundrome, etc.) may be discussed if time permits.

The Trauma Nursing Core CourseTM (TNCC) - 9th edition, is a one and a half day course developed by the Emergency Nurses Association to present a firm foundation in trauma nursing and to provide nurses with core or basic trauma cognitive knowledge and psychomotor skills that are associated with the delivery of professional nursing care to the trauma patient.

The goal of TNCC is to improve trauma patient outcomes by providing nurses with foundational trauma knowledge, skills, and a systematic Trauma Nursing Process to guide trauma patient care.

Verification of successful course completion is based on passing the written exam and the Trauma Nursing Process (TNP) psychomotor skills station  Verification is valid for four years.

Pre-Requisites:

Participants must be an RN and possess a current unrestricted nursing license to receive verification.

It is preferred that participants have at least six months of clinical nursing experience in an emergency care setting before attending the course.  It is assumed that the course participant possesses generic nursing knowledge, has an understanding of emergency care terminology, and has familiarity with standard emergency equipment.
