12-Lead EKG: From Start to Competent in 3 Hours!

Kathy Magdic, DNP, ACNP-BC, FAANP

This 12-lead EKG presentation is designed to refamiliarize nurse practitioners (NPs) with EKG basics.

Other topics covered in this presentation include:

  • Systematic approaches
  • Anatomy of a 12-lead EKG
  • EKG basics (i.e., quadrant method, normal axis, axis deviations)
  • Ischemia, injury, and infarction
  • 10+ EKG case studies

Radiology Review: From Novice to Expert

Rita A. DelloStritto, PhD, RN, CNS, ENP, ACNP-BC, FAANP

Most NPs have a basic understanding of x-ray interpretation, but many question the “why and how” of radiology, especially with more complicated patient films. This two-part session takes the participant from a basic understanding of the shades of black and white on an x-ray film to the ability to identify pneumonia, CHF, cardiomegaly, bowel obstruction, spine injuries, Salter Harris fractures, and much more. Within 2 ½ hours, it’s from novice to expert with radiology in acute care!
