We hope you are enjoying the course so far!
Next week, we will be building on what you’ve learned by exploring:
  1. Challenges you may face in obtaining a high-quality ECG.
  2. The relationship between the heart’s electrical activity and the ECG waveforms.
  3. ECG parameters for normal sinus rhythm.
  4. Key features of arrhythmias and their potential impact on people.

How’s it going so far?

We’ll ask you each to suggest an “aha” moment in the comments – something that you have learnt that has given you a sudden moment of realisation or inspiration!
We’d also like to hear if there is anything that you have found particularly difficult or are struggling to understand – it may be that someone else on the course can help you with it!
What has been your biggest “aha” moment this week? Which steps have you found most informative and which were more challenging or difficult?
