Description

Successful completion of this module will enable the practitioner to effectively use cardiac monitoring to facilitate clinical assessment and deliver evidence-based care for adults with cardiac arrhythmias.

 

Who is this module for?

This module is suitable for healthcare practitioners working with adult patients in a range of acute clinical settings including cardiology, cardiac surgery, acute medicine, pre-hospital and emergency care.

PreRequisites

Students should be healthcare practitioners who regularly work with patients undergoing cardiac monitoring.

Assessment

Usual assessment: Unseen exam

NOTE - TEMPORARY ASSESSMENT CHANGE: Due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements, this module has a modified assessment in place: Online Essay Questions. The modified assessment will apply to module runs starting from September 2020 and will remain in place until social distancing requirements can be sufficiently relaxed to allow on-site, face-to-face assessment. At the time of writing, it is not known when this will be. 

Learning Outcomes
  1. Systematically analyse cardiac rhythms to accurately identify sinus rhythm and a range of arrhythmias, demonstrating awareness of potential causes for individual patients
  2. Apply knowledge of cardiac anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology to inform an accurate understanding of the potential complications arising from cardiac arrhythmias
  3. Formulate and prioritise effective care to ensure safety of patients experiencing cardiac arrhythmias and anticipate evidence-based pharmacological or invasive management.
  4. Critically reflect upon the psychosocial issues and ethico-legal considerations for patients living with cardiac arrhythmias.
