Getting a great ECG and interpreting arrhythmias

This lecture will cover common arrhythmias how to perform a basic ECG interpretation and discuss how ECG complexes are formed. This will entail a brief refresh of basic heart anatomy and the electrical conduction of the heart. Hopefully leaving nurses with an improved understanding and inspiration to apply their interpretation skills in practice.
