EKG & Pulse Oximetry Skills (1.5 CEUs)

For allied health professionals looking to add to their skill set, with classroom and hands-on experience. Learn basic skills in administering a 12-lead EKG, including cardiac anatomy and function; appropriate skin preparation; proper lead placement; and identification of P, Q, R, S, and T wave forms. Learn to recognize a normal versus abnormal electrocardiogram, prevent artifacts, and adapt to unusual patient situations. Also learn pulse oximetry measurement. Class covers sensor placement and pulse correlation techniques to measure oxygen saturation accurately. Please note: This course does not prepare you to become an EKG technician.
