Electrocardiography, Dr. D. Penney


Objectives:

To understand the pathway of conduction from the primary pacemaker to the contractile elements, the rate, the sequence of events and possible alterations thereof. To understand the electrical properties of the heart as sensed at the body surface using electrocardiography. To know standard ECG terminology and connections, the underlying reasons for the ECG patterns observed be able to perform elementary analysis of the ECG, and be aware of several classes of alterations and understand their underlying physiology.
