American Heart Association, ECG and Pharmacology Course
PRICING: AHA ECG & Pharmacology Course = $150.00 plus $20.00 for the book
All ECG & Pharmacology students must purchase a current AHA ECG & Pharmacology book prior to the course.
The ECG and Pharmacology course is designed to refine ECG recognition for basic and advanced arrhythmias. The program allows Healthcare Providers to become proficient in basic ACLS drug usage and routes of administration during cardiovascular emergencies. This course uses the “building-block” method of learning starting with basic rhythm recognition skills and moves into more advanced concepts. Perfect for credentialed healthcare providers who either must or wish to supplement their training. It is an ideal solution for students who are preparing to take ACLS or PALS, but can also be used by anyone needing to learn ECG recognition skills and or pharmacology, including pre-hospital and hospital personnel.
This comprehensive course presents information on basic electrophysiology, normal ECG measurements, basic arrhythmias, basic ACLS drugs, usage and routes of administration during cardiovascular emergencies, and how to integrate basic drug pharmacology into ACLS algorithms.
The American Heart Association (AHA) ECG and Pharmacology Course “closes” the key knowledge gap in Electrocardiogram ECG and Pharmacology.
This is a great introductory course for anyone looking to prepare for an upcoming ACLS or PALS certification class.
The ECG course covers:
- Heart anatomy
- Basic Electrophysiology
- Normal ECG measurements
- Basic Arrhythmias
The Pharmacology course covers:
- Basic ACLS drugs and usage
- Drugs, doses and routes of administration during cardiovascular emergencies
- Integrating basic drug pharmacology into ACLS algorithms
The course is intended for a variety of healthcare providers, including ACLS students preparing for the ACLS provider course, physicians, nurses, paramedics, residents, respiratory therapists, occupational therapists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, clinical pharmacists and ECG technicians.
