23 Feb 2019 ECG Masterclass | 6 QI&CPD (Category 2) Points
The 12 lead ECG is a common and important diagnostic test available to the general practitioner for the evaluation of patients who present with cardiac and other complaints.
Today, our patients can use smart phones to record their own ECG and artificial intelligence/machine learning is being applied to assist in the interpretation of the recordings. It is more important than ever to be comfortable reading ECGs. It is crucial for practitioners to apply their knowledge in order to identify common and rare abnormalities. This session aims to empower participants to easily interpret common ECG patterns along with rarer syndromes. The inaugural ECG Masterclass in 2018 was met with resounding success. In 2019, the RACGP WA, together with Professor Rukshen Weerasooriya present the new ECG Masterclass series. Venue: TBC. Time: 01.00pm-04.00pm (Reg 12.45pm). Cost: RACGP Members: $99, Non-Members: $129
