Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

Accurate interpretation of complex cardiac arrhythmias is an advanced nursing skill which can impact patient outcomes. In this session, you gain proficiency and confidence in interpreting high-grade AV block, atrial tachyarrhythmias, AVNRT, AVRT in Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and ventricular arrhythmias. You learn clinical pearls including the use of the Lewis lead, strategies for determining of the etiology of SVT and a practical methodology for differentiating SVT with aberrancy from VT.


  • Correlate the physiological problem in heart block to the findings on the rhythm strip, presentation and required treatment.
  • Distinguish ectopy (VT) from aberrancy (SVT with BBB) based on QRS morphology in lead V1.
  • Differentiate between typical AVNRT and AVRT (orthodromic).
