A systematic approach to ECG interpretation beyond pattern recognition
To be able to solve ECG-recordings correctly, it is essential to use a systematic approach. The lectures include basic physiology of heart, the mechanisms of arrhythmias, determination of mean electrical axis, common and more uncommon supra ventricular and ventricular arrhythmias, bundle branch blocks, AV-blocks, etc. A step-wise method will be implemented to diagnose ECG abnormalities on a series of clinical cases that we will solve together.
