Brief Description:

Pre-hospital 12-Lead ECGs are rapidly becoming more common as EMS services add this option to their cardiac monitors.  But when should paramedics be acquiring 12-Lead ECGs?  What can we do to improve the quality of our 12-Lead ECGs? And what are the benefits of pre-hospital 12-Lead ECGS for the patient?  

Dr. Matt Davis is continuing his local research into the utility and benefits of the pre-hospital 12-Lead ECG.  During the webinar, he will address these questions and provide updated information from his research.

  • Determine appropriate situations for obtaining a prehospital 12-lead ECG
