About: The ECG and Pharmacology course is an excellent introduction to the ACLS and PALS curriculum. The ACLS and PALS course does not teach ECG and Pharmacology; students are required to know ECG and Pharmacology before attending these courses. This is a perfect course to bring you up to speed on the ECG rhythm recognition, cardiac physiology, and pharmacology dosage and administration. Even if you are practicing medical professional or fresh out of school, this course will boost your knowledge and confidence in dealing with cardiac emergencies. This program prepares you for the pre-test for both of the ACLS and the PALS courses. The AHA requires you score a 70%, or higher, to gain entry to their ACLS or PALS program(s).
• Heart anatomy
• Basic electrophysiology
• Normal ECG measurements
• Basic Arrhythmias
• Basic ACLS drugs and usage

Audience: RNs, NPs, PAs, interns, students, and more.
