Interpreting rhythm strips is an important skill for any clinician, although it can be a difficult skill to become comfortable with and even master. This workshop will provide the attendee with the skills needed to become more knowledgeable and confident in interpreting arrhythmias. Topics will include review of basic concepts, and discussion of criteria required to diagnose normal sinus rhythm, sinus bradycardia, sinus tachycardia, sinus arrhythmia, premature atrial contraction, paroxysmal atrial tachycardia, atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, first-degree AV block, second-degree AV block, type 1 & II, third-degree AV block, idioventricular rhythms, premature ventricular contractions, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, and ventricular standstill (asystole) followed by hands-on practice to reinforce new knowledge. 

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
⦁ Describe the important steps in analyzing rhythm strips
⦁ Describe the diagnostic criteria for each of the rhythms discussed
⦁ Differentiate distinctions between atrial, AV blocks, and ventricular arrhythmias
⦁ Analyze unknown rhythm strips and accurately diagnose normal sinus rhythm, sinus bradycardia, sinus tachycardia, sinus arrhythmia, premature atrial contraction, paroxysmal atrial tachycardia, atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, first-degree AV block, second-degree AV block, type 1 & II, third-degree AV block, idioventricular rhythms, premature ventricular contractions, ventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, ventricular standstill (asystole)
⦁ Propose appropriate first-line treatment options each arrhythmia
