Course Description

The electrocardiogram or ECG is an essential and most commonly used tool for monitoring the functioning of the heart. As a consequence, it also a key element in supervising the safety status of clinical trial subjects. This course will provide you with the basics of the nature of the electrocardiogram, concentrating on the reasons for the positioning of the leads, the nature of the electrical tracing, and the various sections of a normal ECG tracing.

The second part of the course will cover disorders of heart rate and rhythm, concentrating on the most common abnormalities reported in trials. Disorders of conduction will be covered in reasonable depth, with dedicated sections on congenital and acquired disorders. In this section, there will also be a detailed review of the QT interval covering its measurement, the various correction factors involved, and the clinical implications of interval prolongation.

Finally, other disorders of relevance will be covered, including acute and chronic ischaemic changes, heart failure, and cardiomyopathy.
