Accreditation: CPD: 11h 45m Why Attend? Does your work require you to perform 12-lead ECGs? Do you feel confident in interpreting basic and advanced cardiac rhythms, and recognising ECG changes? Is it time you had a refresher on the use of ECGs? If so, then these two highly evaluated study days are for you.
