Course Overview

Chest pain is a very common symptom in patients who present to A&E departments, accounting for 20-30% of all presentations. This makes the ability to interpret 12-lead ECGs a fundamental requirement for staff involved in the assessment of patients with chest pain. 

This programme, authored by Charles G Bloe BJN UK Cardiovascular Nurse of the Year 2020, provides an overview of the 12-lead ECGs seen in patients presenting with chest pain and Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS). The course features interactive eLearning, quizes and case studies.
