Cardiac Rhythm Analysis

Welcome to the Cardiac Rhythm Analysis Self-Directed Learning Package information booklet. This booklet is designed to provide theoretical and practical information to enable the Registered Nurse (RN), Enrolled Nurse (EN) and Registered Midwife (RM) to identify cardiac rhythms and thereby assist in the management of cardiac monitored patients in a safe and effective manner.

This package will be useful for the novice as well as the experienced nurse, and those who seek revision on the subject. Nurses caring for a patient on a cardiac monitor (including telemetry) should have the knowledge, understanding and ability to interpret cardiac rhythms and to identify and act upon abnormal rhythms.

In order to successfully complete this learning package:

  • Complete the learning package theory component – Information Booklet

  • Read ‘Goulburn Valley Health Clinical Practice Guidelines: Cardiac Telemetry Monitoring’.
