EKG for Terminal Tip Positioning – User comments

EKG_programTaking the EKG/Terminal Tip Positioning Systems program, you will learn how and why the electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is an effective system for guided tip positioning of a central venous catheter. Upon completion of this program, you will be able to:

  • Identify the importance of real-time tip confirmation
  • Describe the anatomy and electrophysiology of the heart
  • Review EKG waveforms, how they work and what each waveform represents
  • Explain how to apply EKG as a method to accurately determine terminal tip location during the placement of central venous catheters
