Day 1: 12 Lead ECG Interpretation for Acute & Critical-Care Providers

8 hours | Instructor: Bob Page, M.Ed., NRP, CCP, NCEE

Course Description
Bob Page, Author of the book 12 Lead ECG for Acute and Critical Care Providers, has been teaching Emergency and Critical Care providers worldwide for more than 30 years.

If anyone told you that you could take a 12 lead class and have fun, would you believe them? This 8-hour, highly motivating, non-stop interactive course on 12-Lead ECG is comprehensive including proper lead placement, axis and hemiblock determination, bundle branch blocks, differentiating wide complex tachycardia and myocardial infarction recognition. Also included is the use of a 15-lead ECG for increased sensitivity for STEMI. Participants in the program will read approximately 200 12-lead ECGs, gaining both experience and confidence in their newly learned skill. This is a great course for EMS and hospitals implementing STEMI programs or for continuing professional development.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this lesson, the participant should be able to:

  • Describe the difference between monitoring and assessing a patient using an ECG machine.
  • Demonstrate proper lead placement for 12 and 15 Lead ECG.
  • Using a simple chart and leads I, II, III, determine electrical axis and the presence of fascicular blocks (hemiblocks).
  • Using lead V1, determine bundle branch blocks.
  • Describe the clinical significance of hemiblocks and bundle branch blocks in the cardiac patient.
  • Describe a strategy for identifying V-Tach in wide complex tachycardia.
  • On a 12, 15, or Multi-Lead ECG, identify ST and T wave changes relative to STEMI, myocardial ischemia, injury and infarction.
  • Describe a systematic “assessment” of a 12 and 15 lead ECG.
  • Describe possible complications of prolonged QTc.

Day 2: Unlock the Power of Capnography: Enhancing Critical Care

4 hours | Instructor: Bob Page, M.Ed., NRP, CCP, NCEE

Course Description

Join us for an engaging and educational session where you’ll discover the transformative benefits of comprehensive ETCO2 monitoring and waveform assessment. Led by renowned educator Bob Page, this session dives into the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system and demonstrates the pivotal role of capnography in emergency and critical care through multimedia and interactive elements.

Whether it’s cardiac arrest, airway management, ventilation strategies, or patient assessments from initial triage to ongoing monitoring, this course will illustrate why capnography is essential for every patient. Learn to utilize this vital tool across various medical and trauma cases, ensuring optimal patient care.

Learn in detail why you measure CO2, how the machine measures it, how the waveforms are made and explore real cases from A-Z. Come and learn how to fully integrate this session into your practice and utilize it to its fullest potential! Capnography: It’s not just for confirming tube placement!

Session Objectives

At the completion of this lesson, the participant should be able to:

  • Define a simple process for reading a Capnogram (waveform)
  • Given a waveform, identify the physiologic or pathologic processes it represents
  • Describe the limitations and benefits of Capnography in the intubated patient including tube confirmation and post intubation ventilatory management.
  • Describe the benefits and limitations of Capnography in the non-intubated patient including conscious sedation, possible narcotic OD, and various respiratory, medical, trauma and metabolic emergencies.
  • Describe the uses for capnography in cardiac arrest management including measuring CPR effectiveness, ROSC, and airway confirmation.
  • Describe the use of capnography in the initial triage and manage of various patients.
