Interpreting 12-Lead Electrocardiograms for Acute ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction: What Nurses Know
Evaluating nurses' ability to differentiate ischemic from nonischemic ECG patterns, to detect affected ECG leads and location of ischemia, and assesses skill level by hospital unit type provides important information for researchers implementing clinical trials evaluating the use of bedside ECG monitoring systems for detection of acute myocardial ischemIA.
Abstract 3089: Nurses Ability to Identify Location of Acute ST Elevation Myocardial Infarction on the 12-Lead Electrocardiogram Can be Improved by Using a Simple and Easy to Learn Tool
To determine if a nurse’s ability to identify acute MI location improved by using an easy to learn tool (MI Rule ®) designed for rapid interpretation of 12-lead ECGs for ST elevation MI, a pre-test, post-test study design was used.
Patients and Partners in Research: Patient and Caregiver Perceptions of Research Engagement and the Role of Their Psychosocial States in Participation
The findings of this study support the role of MS patients’ perspectives about MS, their understanding of the science of MS, and role of their psychosocial states as all these factors were patient identified as being key to their ability to be active, engaged and willing research participants.
