About this course

By Dr. John Russell

Learn how to interpret a 12-lead electrocardiogram used to evaluate the human heart, taught by a heart surgery nurse practitioner and doctor of nursing practice! This two hour course will start at the most basic concept and build on your knowledge until you are able to practice along and make this seemingly complex process into a simple decision during simulated EKGs showing real myocardial infarction (heart attacks).
