ECG and Pharmacology

Specifically designed to address a key knowledge gap in Electrocardiogram (ECG) and Pharmacology, the American Heart Association’s Adult ECG and Pharmacology Course is a new program focused on specific ECG recognition skills and drug treatment knowledge. This is a pre-course option for ACLS students and other healthcare providers, and is also for ACLS students who need to improve after the ACLS pre-course self-assessment test. 



The course is divided into two modules – one for ECG and one for Pharmacology – which can be taught together or separately, depending on the need. Skills taught in the ECG module include heart anatomy, basic electrophysiology, normal ECG measurements and basic arrhythmias. The Pharmacology module covers basic ACLS drugs and usage; drugs, doses and routes of administration during cardiovascular emergencies; and integrating basic drug pharmacology into ACLS algorithms 



Course Length: 3.5 hours for the ECG module, 2.75 hours for the Pharmacology module, and 6.25 hours for both modules. 



For a variety of healthcare providers, including physicians, nurses, paramedics, residents, respiratory therapists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, clinical pharmacists and ECG technicians.
