After a recap from the previous week new topics were introduced such as cardiovascular emergencies. Part of the assessment done in Circulation consists of recording an ECG. The participants practiced this and the next step was interpreting the rhythm. There were lectures in the conducting system of the heart and finally they learned how to evaluate a cardiac rhythm in a    systematic way.

The participants were very eager for learning and stated that they are looking forward to the next week of training! They really want to improve and deliver time-critical treatment for all of their patients.
