STEMI/12-Lead EKG

Available course dates

Course fee: $195 • Nonrefundable: $50

 

Thousands of patients suffer from STEMI (ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction) each year, many of whom do not get the necessary proper treatment in a timely manner. This comprehensive 2-day course focuses on the early recognition of STEMI, its pathophysiology, and treatment.  The course also focuses on 12-lead EKG application and interpretation, and includes a hands-on skills session on proper lead placement.
Students will be required to take and pass an on-line assessment test prior to registering for the course.

If you successfully complete the course you can 14 hours of instructor-led CEUs and 6 hours of non-instructor-led CEUs for nurses, paramedics, and EMTs with previous EKG knowledge. A course completion certificate will also be provided.

Prerequisites

Students must be either a nurse or paramedic.  EMTs that have completed the UCLA Paramedic Preparation Program, ACLS, and/or ACLS Prep: ECG Pharmacology may also take the course.

Students will be required to take and pass an on-line assessment test prior to registering for the course.  Once you have taken the test and passed with a minimum of 80%, you can register online via this UCLA website. You will have two opportunities to pass the exam with an 80%. If the exam is not completed within these two attempts, you must wait 14 days before taking the exam again.
