Tracheostomy is a stoma (a small opening) made in the trachea (your windpipe) where it is close to the skin. A tracheostomy tube is put in to your trachea to help you breathe. Tracheotomy procedures are done due to a variety of illnesses, obstructions of the airway, or injury to air pipe.
This course aims to remove the fear out of tracheostomy care. This course is designed for healthcare providers and family members in order to allow them to get comfortable and become confident with a tracheostomy patient.
An electrocardiogram or ECG, sometimes EKG, is a reading of the electrical impulses in the heart that activate the heart muscle and its blood-pumping action. Twelve electrodes are affixed to the skin of the patient. They are positioned on the chest, arms, and legs in order to sense those impulses from various vantage points.Part of the reason why the ECG has had such staying power is that the output is visual: a line graph with peaks and valleys, not a stream of numbers.
This course is designed for healthcare and non healthcare professionals who want to have a better understanding of all the waves and bumps on an EKG strip. This course is rhythm recognition made easy.
