Objectives: We will briefly review normal cardiac conduction and how it is evaluated with a surface electrocardiogram (ECG). Performing diagnostic quality ECGs will be discussed along with a review of interpretation. Diagnosis and treatment of common cardiac arrhythmias will also be discussed as a way to clinically apply all of the information.
