Basic EKG Rhythm Interpretation

SBSI hosted a workshop, “Basic EKG Rhythm Interpretation” on 17 December 2016 at Calmette Hospital. The 4.5 hours class was given by Mr. Bud Hattaway from MTI. There were 31 participants, including 4 doctors, 18 nurses and 13 medical students from UHS and UP.
The objective of the EKG training is to help all medical workers who work in heath sectors including interns, nurses and medical doctors to expand their knowledge in reading patient’s EKG. This workshop was so impressive and extremely helpful for them for examining or making diagnose for patients who have any heart problems.
At the beginning of the workshop, Mr. Bud Hattaway taught on the general anatomy and general function of human heart, then class on reading EKG. We found out that all the participants were interested in learning EKG. Moreover, they want to continuously learn this again soon.
Overall, this workshop is very helpful to them. If they know and be able to read EKG well, they will know when any problem arises to their patients. Dear Mr. Bud and Ms. Chhel Sarim from MTI, Thank you for your warm cooperation. (by Ly Rathana, SBSI intern and a student of UHS).
