Transcript of The Heart

  • The HeartMore than just a love muscle?

  • Cardiology: its all about Hearts

  • So what does a Cardiac Physiologist do?ECGs Ambulatory monitoringExercise testingCardiac Ultrasounds (AKA Echocardiograms)Catheter labsPacemakersElectrophysiology

  • Electrocardiograms (ECGs)

  • Ambulatory Monitoring

  • Exercise Testing

  • Echocardiography

  • Cardiac Catheter Lab

  • Cardiac Catheter Lab

  • Pacemakers

  • Electrophysiology

  • Electrophysiology

  • How can I do that?The NHS in the West Midlands runs a regional training scheme based on the Clinical Physiology course run by University of WolverhamptonThis takes 4 years combined with on the job learning for the practical skills (you have to have the job to do the course)To apply for this youll need a minimum of 2 A levels, at least one of which must be a science

  • Why should I do that?A thoroughly challenging jobLots of potential for progressionYou get to save lives!

  • Thank You

    PowerPoint on CardiologyHearts football team and diagrams of hearts.7 pictures: 1) Picture of an Electrocardiogram (ECG). ECG monitors heartbeat. 2) Picture of a Ambulatory monitoring screen. Ambulatory electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) monitors the electrical activity of your heart while you go about your usual daily activities. Many heart problems occur only during certain activities, such as exercise, eating, sex, emotional stress, bowel movements, or even sleeping. A continuous 24-hour recording is much more likely to detect any abnormal heartbeats that occur during these activities. 3) Picture of someone exercising and having heart functions monitored. 4) An echocardiogram, or echo stress test, is a cardiac ultrasound which takes pictures of your heart for the diagnosis of heart disease conditions 5) Tool for diagnosing illness within a patients cardiovascular system (catheter inserted into arteries of the heart). 6) a small battery placed under the skin and joined to the heart by pacing wires, which measure the pulse and corrects too fast or too slow rhythms. 7) A diagnostic procedure to look more closely at the electrical function of your heart. It is the most accurate and reliable method of evaluating your heart rhythms.

    (ECG, EKG) Graphic representation of the electrical activity within the heart, detected by electrodes placed on the body. Ambulatory electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) monitors the electrical activity of your heart while you go about your usual daily activities.
