SEMINARS OFFERED

A.  ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS:

  • Minimum Age: Eighteen (18) years old
  • Proof of prior completion of any medical training or one year work related experience (a letter of endorsement from employer is required)
  • Prospective students must pick up the book, study guide and online practice exam one week before the seminar starting. After completion of the seminar, student must register at www.nhanow.com to take the Certified EKG Technician (CET) national examination.

 B.  SEMINAR DESCRIPTION:
This 60 hours seminar presents the principles of EKG monitoring associated with patient care. Each chapter presents learning objectives, enabling the students to focus attention on specific areas needing improvement. After completion of this seminar students will be able to perform the following:
    1. The EKG Monitoring

  • Calculate a patient’s heart rate from the EKG tracing (e.g., 6-seconds methods, R to R, sequencing).
  • Identify artifacts from the tracing (e.g., wondering baseline, somatic, electrical).
  • Resolve artifacts from the tracing (e.g., wondering baseline, somatic electrical).
  • Record and EKG on a patient
  • Verify the leads recorded on an EKG
  • Upload a completed EKG to a patient electronic medical record
  • Mount a competed EKG for a patient chart.
  • Measure a patient’s heart rhythm from the EKG tracing.
  • Inspect the waveforms of a cardiac cycle for symmetry, direction, and amplitude (e.g., P waves, QRS complexes, St Segments, T waves).
  • Measure a patient’s heart conduction from the EKG tracing (e.g., PR-intervals (PRI), QRS duration, QT-interval).
  • Identify the major classifications of arrhythmias from the EKG tracing (e.g., sinus, atrial, ventricular, and junctional).
  • Identify the major variances to waveforms related to ischemia, injury, or infarction.
  • Respond to potentially life-threatening arrhythmias.
  • Verify EKG machine paper speed (e.g., 25 mm/second, 50mm/second.
  • Verify EKG machine sensitivity (e.g., h, 1, 2)
  • Maintain EKG equipment and the work environment.
  • Recognize pacemaker spikes on an EKG trace.

    2.  Patient Care

  • Prepare the Patient
  • EKG monitoring (e.g., patient history, cardiac medications, patient positioning).
  • Holter monitoring
  • Stress testing
  • Telemetry monitoring
  • Apply Electrodes on Patient
  • Holter monitoring
  • Stress testin
  • Pediatric patient
  • Patient with special Considerations (e.g., right sided heart, posterior chest, amputations)

C.  Respond to sign and symptoms of cardiopulmonary compromise.
D.  Adhere to HIPAA regulations regarding Protected Health Information.
E.   Monitor patient condition during stress testing.
F.   Respond to complications during stress testing.
G.  Verify patient understanding of Holter monitor procedures.
H.  Obtain patient vital signs (e.g., heart rate, respirations, temperature, blood pressure, and pulse oximetry.
   3.  Case Studies

  • Stress Test
  • 12-Lead EKG
  • Holter Monito

SEMINAR OVERVIEW:
EKG rhythms provide important data for the diagnosis of heart conditions. As a Certified EKG Technician (CET), you’ll have the credentials nearly all healthcare employers require to perform the critical tasks of administering EKGs, as well as Holter monitoring and stress testing. These tests can be performed during physical exams, when cardiovascular problems are suspected, or in preparation for surgery.
By administering EKGs — testing the electrical activity of the heart through small electrode patches attached to the body — you’ll be making a life-changing difference by helping people of all ages prevent and treat heart disease.
The need for qualified EKG technicians continues to rise as the aging population in America grows (and with it, the prevalence of heart-related conditions). Earning your CET will help you launch a successful and meaningful career that can help make a difference in countless lives. Whether you seek full-time or part-time employment, the opportunities in this profession are flexible and in high demand. Plus, the added skills of Holter monitoring and stress tests required for the Certified EKG Technician (CET) will help you to be even more competitive as you launch your healthcare career..
