E-news: Endobible author speaking at On-call Diagnostics Course

On-call Diagnostics: a Survival Guide, 25 October 2014, UCH Education Centre, London

The purpose of this one-day event is improve the confidence of doctors when interpreting ECGs, radiological images and medical tests, particularly when on-call.

Morning sessions will improve delegates’ understanding of ABGs and electrolytes in the acute setting, and effective reading of chest x-rays and CT brains.

The afternoon sessions will cover ECGs that doctors may encounter when on-call. This includes patients with acute coronary syndromes, tachycardia, bradycardia or miscellaneous rhythm abnormalities and oddities.

Course Director Dr Simon Fynn says: “Identification of the correct rhythm is vital if a patient is to be managed appropriately. The sessions will cover rhythm abnormalities in detail, including broad and narrow complex tachycardias and heart block.

“By the end of the day, delegates will be able to approach ECGs with renewed confidence, and will be able to deal more effectively with cardiac conditions. The course is not just about diagnosis, there will also be discussion of the management of relevant conditions.”

Dr Frankie Swords, Endobible author, will be speaking on electrolytes.
