An ECG (electrocardiogram) is a recording of the electrical activity within the heart muscle. It is the most commonly performed cardiac test.

Practice in 12-lead ECG recording varies across the Health Service predominantly due to variations in training, personal experience and preferences as well as resources.  This short course aims to reduce such variation by ensuring that members of staff that perform 12-lead ECG recording do so using evidence-based information based on national approved guidelines issued by The Society for Cardiological Science & Technology (SCST). This course will also introduce you to a number of abnormal ECG rhythms to further expand your skills and knowledge.

This course is suitable for anyone that has a requirement to record 12-lead ECGs in their clinical role.
