12 Lead ECG Recording

This is suitable for staff who are involved in taking, but not interpreting a 12 lead ECG. Our trainers will need to have access to your ECG machine for the practical work, to ensure staff are familiar and competent in its use. Delegates will work through a workbook which they will keep as a reference at the end of the course.
