A 2-day boot camp for the two most critical problems challenging paramedics: advanced ECG diagnosis of tachycardias and acute myocardial infarctions. This course is projected to debut fall of 2018. Continuing education credit is being arranged.
An Advanced Dysrhythmia Boot Camp is available with CME credit. Due to the complex nature of the subject matter, this course is offered only as a VIP Private Tutoring module for one or two participants or as a privately contracted group (maximum 20 participants).
Private ECG Boot Camps
We can arrange private boot camps for 10 or more participants at a tremendous savings! Great for large groups. Small groups can combine with other groups to receive the same great discounted tuition! AMA PRA Category 1 credit is included. To learn more about private boot camps or to arrange one, contact Jerry W. Jones, MD at 713/931-5423.
Are ECGs Your Weakness?
Most physicians and other health-care providers begin their practices with little or no training at all in the interpretation of ECGs. Very few (if any) medical or nursing schools offer any formal classes in ECG interpretation. This is one of the most rapid, affordable, informative and frequently-ordered tests for assessing the heart. And it is often at the center of a large amount of malpractice litigation.
Yet education in the application of this test is woefully lacking. Most health-care providers reading ECGs are doing so at a dangerously elementary level. Self-teaching books and most online courses simply teach you how to read an ECG... not how to interpret it. This is analogous to simply reciting a patient's symptoms without trying to arrive at a diagnosis. Don't pat yourself on the back because you can recognize a right bundle branch block... a second-grader can be taught that as well.
And many live courses that claim to be "advanced" do nothing more than review the basics without introducing any advanced subject matter at all! Sorry, but being able to recognize left or right bundle branch block or a classic inferior STEMI are not advanced skills!
Join us for a live, 4-day intense study of ECG interpretation. Learn about the subtlest signs of acute ischemia, narrow and wide complex tachycardias, how to use laddergrams to decipher complex arrhythmias and much, much more. Experience up to 14 hours interpreting complex ECGs with guidance from an expert electrocardiographer.
