Dysrhythmia Interpretation and Management NSCC 7150

Nursing Specialty Critical Care Course

International Fees

International fees are typically three times the amount of domestic fees. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

This course supports the development of fundamental knowledge required to systematically analyze and interpret basic cardiac dysrhythmias. Participants will explore myocardial electrophysiology in relation to cardiac monitoring and develop a systematic approach to dysrhythmia analysis and interpretation. Further, participants will consider the predisposing factors and associated interventions related to the conduction defect present and the consequences of the dysrhythmia to both systemic and myocardial oxygen supply and demand. Finally, the significance of dysrhythmia analysis, interpretation, and management to critical care nursing practice will be explored. Although this course is conducted within the specific context of critical care nursing practice, it would also be suitable for other nurses or qualified health professionals requiring this skill. If you are not a registered nurse or a student nurse in the final years of your BSN program you must consult the Critical Care Nursing Program Head prior to registration. Health professionals who are not nurses may register for this course with approval of the Critical Care Specialty Program Head. If you are registering in the NSCC, NSHA or NSER nursing program follow the program course matrix. Program Head approval is required to take NSCC 7150 as a co-requisite with NSCC 7120, NSCC 7220, NSHA 7100, or NSER 7110. You must achieve 75% or greater in this course to continue forward in the Critical Care Nursing Program and register in NSCC 7220.

Upon successful completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe myocardial electrophysiology and conduction.
  • Describe a normal electrocardiogram complex.
  • Demonstrate a systematic approach to ECG rhythm analysis and interpretation.
  • Analyze and interpret selected sinus, atrial, AV node, ventricular dysrhythmias, and AV blocks.
  • Describe predisposing factors and conduction defects associated with selected sinus, atrial, AV node, ventricular dysrhythmias, and AV blocks.
  • Explain the impact of selected sinus, atrial, AV node, ventricular dysrhythmias, and AV blocks on the components of oxygen supply and demand.
  • Link patient responses to alterations in oxygen supply and demand balance resulting from selected sinus, atrial, AV node, ventricular dysrhythmias, and AV blocks.
  • Choose appropriate interventions to manage selected sinus, atrial, AV node, ventricular dysrhythmias, and AV blocks (e.g., cardioversion, defibrillation, medications, pacemaker therapy).
  • Identify indications for pacemaker therapy.
  • Describe the contribution of cardiac pacemakers to oxygen supply and demand balance and end-organ perfusion.
  • Identify common routes used for temporary pacemaker therapy.
  • Describe component parts and typical settings of a temporary pacemaker.
  • Explain the functions of a single chamber pacemaker using the NBG pacemaker coding system.
  • Recognize pacemaker activity on an ECG rhythm strip.
  • Recognize common pacemaker malfunctions on an ECG rhythm strip.
  • Describe basic troubleshooting procedures for failure to capture, failure to pace and inappropriate sensing of pacemakers.
