Description

What is ECG Interpretation? An electrocardiogram or ECG, records electrical activity in the heart. An ECG machine records these electrical signals across multiple heart beats and produces an ECG strip that is interpreted by a healthcare professional.

Objectives

Describe the conduction system of the heart. Discuss the sites of action potential generation and propagation through the cardiac conduction system. Contrast the effect of parasympathetic with sympathetic stimulation of the cardiac conduction system. Correlate the actions of the heart represented by the p wave, PR interval, QRS complex, and T-wave. Choose proper placement of electrodes based on ECG mechanics.
