Basic Arrhythmia Cardiac Rhythm Interpretation (BACRI) Class

Basic Arrhythmia Cardiac Rhythm Interpretation (BACRI) class is a non-consecutive two-day course designed to prepare nurses and other select staff of VUH to recognize cardiac arrhythmias.  Basic electrophysiology concepts are reviewed, and specific complexes, waves, and intervals are detailed.  Sinus, atrial, junctional, and ventricular arrhythmias and blocks are discussed.  Hemodynamic effects and treatments also are presented.

Registrants must attend both days of the class.
