This was very informative. It was a lot of information to take in at once. Unfortunately I was not able to see the diagrams she was drawing on the white board to elaborate on some points. Jo is very knowledgable in her area.

This online course is very educational and I encourage all nurse who work in the unit where you deal with ECG to watch this on line course.
