Basic ECG

BASIC Membership

This Basic Membership of ECG Academy was designed for nurses, technologists, and students – anyone who wants to be able to correctly interpret ECG rhythm strips. Even the Basic level covers complex topics in arrhythmia recognition such as Ashmann's Phenomenon and Torsades de Pointes. The Basic membership plan included access to the Level 1 ECG Course video tutorials and the basic-difficulty ChalkTalks and is suitable for:

  • Nurses or Telemetry technicians
  • Medical, Radiologic, Respiratory technologists working with cardiac monitors
  • Cath Lab or EP Lab personnel
  • Anyone taking Basic Life Support (BLS) or Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
  • Police, fire, rescue personnel involved in cardiac conditions

 

Advanced ECG

INTERMEDIATE Membership

This Intermediate level of ECG Academy is suitable for physicians, nurses, NPs, PAs, technologists, and medical students who want to interpret 12-lead ECGs. The Intermediate membership plan includes access to the Level 1+2 Video Tutorials and the intermediate-difficulty ChalkTalks and is suitable for:

  • Medical Students, Interns and Residents
  • Cardiac Nurses (CCU/ICU, Cardiac Cath Lab, EP Lab, Telemetry Unit, Emergency Department), Advanced Practice Nurses
  • Physician Assistants
  • EMTs / Paramedics
  • ECG technologist

 

Advanced ECG

ADVANCED - Available 2015

This Advanced membership plan will include access to Level 1 + 2 Course videos, all archived ChalkTalks, and a weekly series of video discussions on advanced topics. This membership plan is for physicians who want to improve their ECG reading skills and for advanced students who need to be familiar with the finer points of the electrocardiogram and arrhythmias. Ewlectrophysiologic topics including arrhythmia mechanisms, His bundle studies, and advanced topics such as idiopathic ventricular tachycardia syndromes are included. The Advanced membership is suitable for:

  • Practicing Physicians (Cardiologists, Internists, Emergency Physicians, or Intensivists)
  • Cardiology or Electrophysiology Fellows
  • Medical Residents interested in Cardiology
  • Cardiac Physician Assistants or Nurse Practitioners
  • Medical Students with an Interest in Cardiology
