By: Phlebotomy Career Training
Sept. 29, 2010 - PRLog -- Earning a certification in telemetry and ECG will allow students to get jobs as telemetry technicians and enhance their credentials as a qualified health-care professional.  Students can add extra earning power to their degrees.  This is a one week course.  Students are able to sit for the National Healthcareer Associations  ECG Technician Certification upon course completion.  Why wait? The same course goes for over $5000 to $10,000 dollars at local community colleges and technical health career schools.  Phlebotomy Career Training is offering the course for $150.  The National Healthcareer Association test fee is not included.  Nurses, LPN, LVN's, Medical Technologist, Medical Assistants, Certified Nursing Assistants and the lay public who are interested in the medical filed are all welcome to take the online telemetry/ECG course.  Hospitals are looking for those who can multitask.  Having a certificate that will help solidify ones current position is a great relief.   Students can work most anywhere if they have the knowledge to interpret ECG's and have a thorough understanding of the cardiovascular system.  School should be affordable to everyone.  Here at Phlebotomy Career Training
students get quality education at an affordable price.

The Telemetry ECG Certification Course is similar in content to the course that Physicians and Registered Nurses must complete upon hiring into hospitals.  The course helps students to read and interpret ECG Lead Tracings.  Students will learn to interpret such rhythms as Atrial Fibrillation, Ventricular Tachycardia, Premature Ventricular and Atrial contractions, Type I, II and III heart blocks and many more.   In addition students are trained in the mechanism of action regarding the biometabolism of  heart medications such as beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, Calcium channel blockers as well as cardiac glycosides.  The renin-angiotensen cascade will be studied in relation to how high blood pressure effects the cardiac muscles and the renal system.   The course will cover the entire anatomy and physiology of the heart muscle, and delve into the rhythmicity and excitability of cardiac tissue.   Students learn to correlate the different heart medications to specific cardiac rhythms.  This course is much more in depth than the National Healthcareer Associations Study Guide for ECG Technician.  The NHA was so impressed with the final exam which Professor Kimmel wrote, that they approved the program immediately.  Professor Kimmels undergraduate work  in biochemistry at the University of Michigan and toxicology at Kansas State have paved the way for the plethora of knowledge that Professor Kimmel can impart to students.   Professor Kimmels PhD thesis detailed  the toxicology of cardiac specific medications.  Dr. Kimmel experience as an Registered Nurse includes working in the cardiac care unit, ICU, intermediate intensive care and medical surgical units.

Professor Kimmel States; "This is a very serious course.  Students who consider taking this course should have some prior experience in the medical field and direct patient care skills. This course requires interpretation of actual cardiac rhythm strips.  Although a telemetry technicians interpretation will be reviewed by a registered nurse and  physician, technicians should be aware that immediate changes in the cardiac rhythm could be fatal.  With that said, students should be ready to perform CPR.  This is a course that is designed for those with experience in the healthcare field and that have some familiarity with cardiac leads and telemetry.   Students should be prepared to purchase a caliper.  These can be purchased at any uniform or medical supply store.  For the ECG tracings, students should be able to print off the various strips to be interpreted.  Students will need the calipers for their final exam.  

The instructor of the course, Professor Nancy Kimmel is a Registered Nurse, a Certified Hazardous Materials Manager, Certified Phlebotomy Instructor, Certified Nurses Aide Trainer, PhD and a Basic Life Support Instructor through the American Heart Association.  Professor Kimmel has worked in ICU, CCU, Intermediate Intensive care, Emergency, medical surgical floors and has done home-care.   Professor Kimmel has been an ardent instructor in the Metro Detroit area since 2002.  She has taught Mechanical Engineering at Lawrence Technological University, math, physics and engineering at Henry Ford Community College, Mechanical Engineering at Oakland University as well as authoring a best selling nursing entrance text which Wayne County Community College and Henry Ford Community College offer for sale in their book stores.  Professor Kimmel holds a United States Patent on a revolutionary air filter and is currently working on helping the nation further their education with other affordable online courses.
