IV. COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The focus of this lecture course is to study the basic principles of electrophysiology, pulmonary diagnostics, polysomnography, and special procedures. Special procedures include bronchoscopy, thoracentesis, and chest tubes. Emphasis is placed on technical aspects as well as analyzing results. A detailed study of the electrocardiogram procedure, including indications, performing, troubleshooting, and interpretation of the test will be discussed.

Students will be able to recognize and distinguish between normal and abnormal

ECG tracings.

VII. COURSE METHODOLOGY:

Students will be required to participate in traditional lectures, role-playing, group discussion, assignments, worksheets and interactive proceedings.

VIII. GRADING:

A = 93 – 100

B = 85 – 92

C = 77 – 84

F = 0 – 76

A final grade of at least 77% is required to pass this course.

Please note that students must achieve at least a satisfactory in each lab and clinical evaluation to pass this course. If a student fails to achieve a satisfactory in lab or clinical practice, regardless of lecture grade, student will receive a grade of F for the course.
