Speakers

This webinar aims at improving your confidence in the interpretation of ECG, one of the most important tools in cardiovascular care. Studies clearly indicate that a systematic approach to ECG analysis along with up to date interpretation skills are essential for identifying an early and appropriate management for cardiac conditions. Yet, many physicians and medical students have only been receiving basic ECG information during training.

 This webinar is ideal for those required to interpret ECGs within their clinical role, who have a basic knowledge of ECG, and wish to quickly develop a reliable method for ECG interpretation. A simple, but systematic, learning approach and high-quality content will be provided here with the final goal to truly “understand” ECG and not simply
memorize patterns. During the webinar, you will be encouraged to send your questions by chat and interact with our speaker who will provide live feedback.
