Webinar Summary:
Electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring is integral to acute and critical care nursing units. Skill in ECG monitoring is essential for safe patient care, as is knowledge of which monitoring skills are needed in which patient situations. “Update to Practice Standards for Electrocardiographic (ECG) Monitoring in Hospital Settings” was released in 2017. Learn how this update differs from the prior (2004) standards and how to apply these in your practice. This webinar will engage live participants in polling about specific practices, relating those current practices to the update standards. Topics include QTc monitoring, continuous ST segment monitoring and arrhythmia monitoring. Participants will develop their understanding of applying the standards to patient situations and institutional approaches to implement them. Content will also touch on alarm management, as alarms associated with ECG monitoring are a key contributor to environmental noise and patient safety risks.

• Identify the appropriate use of QTc monitoring in hospital practice.
• Describe three patient situations that are recommended for continuous arrhythmia monitoring, and three that are not.
• Discuss three important considerations when establishing an alarm management approach at your hospital.
