Cardiology Teaching Packs

  1. 0
    Hi, I work in a 12 bedded Coronary Care Unit, with telemetry monitoring facilities.
    I would like to put together a teaching pack suitable for student nurses on placement,
    to gain understanding in ecg analysis and rhythm disturbances, without making it too
    complicated. I would appreciate your comments and ideas.

    A good thing to know would be how much cardiac they've had in the classroom before they hit your floor.

    Maybe keep to the basics of "too fast - too slow - oh crap"

    Maybe highlight areas you know they'd see a lot of based on your population.

    A review of your own monitoring system and lead placement would be good so you don't find patient's rhythm's changing because their leads are all mixed up.

    Thank you so much for your reply. I tend to get a bit too theoretical (boring?) and
    loose the stimulus of being very practical, so your suggestions are very welcome
