Dr. Harvey

Over 200 health professionals attended her session entitled, “A Systematic Approach to 12 Lead ECG Interpretation.” The session provided the nurse practitioners with a systematic approach to interpreting the 12 lead ECG. Participants were briefed on major physiologic underpinnings using actual case studies and electrocardiograms. Normal and abnormal 12 lead ECGs were reviewed and a stepwise interpretation approach was introduced.
