These notes are my complete revision notes for PARA706 Cardiology. I used these notes to revise for the 12-lead ECG interpretation, written exam and final exams for the degree. These comprehensive notes include tables showing examples of ECGs, ECG interpretation points, causes and signs and symptoms for a wide range of conditions including bundle branch blocks, heart blocks, common dysrhyhthmias and congenital conditions.
Aims of course: Explores the epidemiology and physiology of cardiac disease. Further develops an understanding of cardiovascular anatomy, physiology, electrophysiology and cardiac dysfunction. Develops competence in electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation, and differential diagnoses. Defines management of cardiac dysrhythmias, acute coronary syndromes (ACS), and chronic cardiac conditions.
Topics covered include:
• Cardiac anatomy, physiology and electrophysiology
• ACS, heart failure and cardiogenic shock
• Assessment of a cardiac patient
• Cardiac rhythms and ECG morphologies, especially 12‐lead interpretation
• Pharmacological actions and applications
• Treatment planning
I studied a Bachelor of Health Sciences (Paramedicine) at Auckland University of Technology and was awarded academic distinction at the completion of my degree.
