Give a tennis ball a good, hard squeeze. You’re using about the same amount of force your heart uses to pump blood out to the body. Even at rest, the muscles of the heart work hard – twice as hard as the leg muscles of a person sprinting. Click here for more interesting heart facts.
Senior Nursing students in the Knoxville area learning proper EKG reading techniques from a class taught by EKGs4U
Understanding the Need for 12 Lead EKGs
EKG Training for Leading Healthcare Professionals
Welcome to EKGs 4U. We invite you to take a few minutes to learn who we are and what we can offer you. Let’s start with a question:
Do you follow the universal standardized method of electrode placement?
We have discovered that many healthcare workers learn how to perform a 12 Lead EKG at a patient’s bedside. Their instructors—typically nurses—are usually in a hurry, and much of the information that they pass on is incorrect because they also learned it on the fly. Consider how you learned to perform a 12 Lead EKG.
Do you know if what you were taught is correct? Physicians need accurate information from a 12 Lead to correctly diagnosis the problem, choose the best treatment for the patient, and thus achieve the best possible outcome.
Second question: Are you confident in your knowledge of arrhythmias?
We can teach you how to interpret cardiac arrhythmias with confidence. Our cardiac arrhythmia class is ideal for the novice, as well as the experienced professional. Hone your skills and update your knowledge with our unique tools and teaching methods. This twenty-four hour class is limited in size to ensure personalized instruction and knowledge retention.
Your professional development is our bottom line at EKGs 4U. Our cardiac arrhythmia class, which includes the arrhythmia manual, “Heart Prints,” written by Beth Truex, RN, and our 12 Lead EKG class, which includes hands-on EKG training in the EKG lead placement, will translate into better care for your patients.
