Faculty of Health Sciences Electrocardiography: Analysis and Interpretation Continuing Professional Development Individual module Level of study Please select a level How to apply What you'll study Electrocardiography is a key investigation for patients with suspected cardiac disorders. Electrocardiograms (ECGs) provide the ability to detect myocardial ischemia or infarction, and allow detailed analysis of cardiac arrhythmias. This module provides health care practitioners with the knowledge and skills required to analyse and interpret ECGs, including rhythm strips and 12-lead ECGs, in clinical practice. The module will provide the underpinning knowledge required for ECG interpretation. This will include electrophysiology and pathophysiology of the mechanisms underlying the normal and abnormal ECG. You will develop an in-depth knowledge of constituent parts of the normal ECG, providing a template against which abnormalities in the ECG can be identified. The module will be based around a series of patient scenarios, allowing for application of ECG interpretation skills to real-life clinical situations.
