The Emergency Department, San Fernando General Hospital, hosted an ECG (Electrocardiogram) Training Workshop - Basic Level on April 9th, 2019 for front-line trauma staff. The session was facilitated by Dr. Saleem Varachhia who indicated that it was about creating an awareness and an understanding about the concept of ECG and its importance in making diagnosis, determining treatment and eventually saving lives.

It was an interactive session where Dr. Varachhia explained how to place the ECG leads on a patient, and how to read an EGC report. He also presented medical case scenarios along with their respective ECG readings and asked the participants to analyse the reports, outline the steps they would take to manage and treat each presenting health condition.
