Too Fast or Too Slow? Managing the Secondary Diagnosis: Arrhythmia

The non-cardiac patient may develop arrhythmias that can be discovered in the in-patient or out-patient setting. This course will aim to review the diagnosis and management of the most common arrhythmias that may be discovered by generalists and treated as a secondary diagnosis: atrial fibrillation and bradyarrhythmias.

This course is designed for nurses and allied health professionals who would like to increase their competency in recognizing and managing common
arrhythmias, understanding the rationale for treatment strategies, and understanding when referral to cardiology or electrophysiology may be indicated.
