Course Description

This one day course will develop the skills and knowledge needed to take an accurate high quality 12 lead ECG. It will develop understanding of the use of ECG in monitoring patients and of the diagnostic potential of the ECG.

Content includes:

  • electrical pathways of the heart
  • recognising normal sinus rhythm
  • recognising when a rhythm is not normal and to explain why
  • recognising common arrhythmia and life threatening arrhythmia
  • anatomy and physiology of the heart
  • how the ECG is formed
  • how to analyse an ECG rhythm
  • how to take a 12 lead ECG.

At the end of the day you will be able to take a 12 lead ECG and have the knowledge and skills required by ECG rhythm monitoring and analysis.

Each study day has a number of NHS funded places, with support of Health Education England across Yorkshire and the Humber (HEE Y&H). 

Funded places are available to employees of NHS trusts and primary care staff within Yorkshire and the Humber and to anyone working in an area which provides placements for University of York nursing or midwifery students. This also applies to nursing staff working in the ambulance service, prison service and hospices. Places may be available to social services staff working in a healthcare environment. This is agreed on a case-by-case basis.

We therefore do not charge when you book your place, but will contact you should you not meet the required criteria for a funded place. Non funded places are charged at £100.00, payable in advance.

Please follow the booking process all the way through. You should receive a confirmation email. Please note that your booking is not confirmed until you have received a confirmation email. If you experience a problem during the online booking process please contact Jane Milsom on 01904 321392.
