        1 DAY: Rhythm Interpretation: If you are new or fairly new to telemetry monitoring,  this full day rhythm interpretation workshop is ideally suited. If you are planning on doing ACLS or PALS, this course is ideal to help you in preparing for those sessions. You will learn a systematic approach to rhythm interpretation and have plenty of practice time on  every rhythm strip. The day starts at the basic level of rhythm interpretation with the opportunity of identifying normal and abnormal intervals and understanding what it means when the intervals are abnormal. You will also have a solid understanding of the management of the patient presenting with an abnormal rhythm according to the ACC, AHA, and ACLS guidelines.

        1 DAY: ECG Interpretation: This course identifies a systematic approach to ECG assessment: R (Rate) - I (Intervals) – R (Rhythm) - I (Ischemia/Infarction). As Day 1 -Rhythm Interpretation is focused on learning calculation of rate, identification of intervals and rhythm, the ECG Day quickly reviews the important pieces to remember of rhythm assessment, with the main focus of the day spent on ECG assessment. If you are new to rhythm interpretation, it is highly recommended that you attend Day 1 (Rhythm Interpretation) prior to attending the ECG Interpretation course.  If you have experience in rhythm interpretation, this stand-alone ECG Day is ideal for you.

        At the end of this session, you will have learned and practiced implementing a fast and systematic approach to ECG assessment. You will have a solid understanding of acute coronary syndrome (ACS), as well as treatments and anticipated complications for each type of ACS. There will be many opportunities to practice with various case studies to help reinforce your learning.

        Combined Rhythm & ECG in 1 Day

        If you have experience in rhythm interpretation, and range between a novice to confident ECG assessor, this course is ideally suited for you. Concepts of basic rhythm interpretation are covered very quickly, so if you are new to rhythm interpretation, you may find this segment moderately paced.  If you are new to rhythm interpretation and would like to attend this course, it is strongly recommended that you either purchase the QRS Heart of the Matter Manual  or print off the additional website tips material prior to attending this course. 

        Please note: Upon a request by a group, this 1-day course may be tailored to the novice health care provider. If you are a nursing or pre-hospital care student OR are a novice group working in a department, please contact us to set up a NOVICE Combined Rhythm & ECG session.

        PAEDIATRIC Courses

        Welcome to our Paediatric and Neonatal courses.  We offer PEARS, PALS, and NRP 

        Paediatric Emergency Assessment Recognition and Stabilization (PEARS)

        This one-day, non stressful PEARS course is designed for all health care professionals (medical, nursing, paramedics, students, residents) with limited experience with children. Through hands-on experience and video based simulation, participants will develop the knowledge and skills needed for emergency evaluation and initial stabilization of seriously ill infants and children.

        If you work in a remote, rural, sub-urban or urban emergency department with unstable paediatric patients and want to develop more confidence in caring for these patients, this course is for you.

        The focus of this course will be on establishing a systematic and rapid assessment, recognizing stable vs. unstable, and stabilizing the unstable paediatric patient presenting with airway and respiratory compromise, shock, and cardiac arrest.  

        Due to the nature of the hands-on stations, this course is restricted to number of registrants per class.  

        For a detailed agenda, please contact Diana Curphey at Diana@qrsadmin.com for the PEARS e-flyer.

        Paediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)

        This Heart and Stroke Foundation (HSF) paediatric certification course requires that you come prepared and have completed the HSF on-line pre-course test. Please allow yourself adequate preparation time (eg 3 -6 weeks) as you are expected to demonstrate knowledge of the material. You are also required to purchase the course material.

        For those who have a current PALS card, valid within the past 2 years, and have confidence in the PALS process, and require re-certification, you will need to sign up for the one-day PALS Provider course.

        If you are doing PALS for the first time (certification) or you have an expired PALS card, you MUST sign up for the 5-hour PALS Prep Session plus sign up for the PALS Provider Course.

        The 5-hour PALS Prep session is unique to QRS. We promote attendance of the prep session to everyone doing PALS and do not charge extra for attendance to this session.

        At the full day Provider course, you will be tested on a variety of stations as set out by the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (HSF). These stations include management of BLS/AED, Airway, ACS, Tachycardia, Bradycardia, Asystole, and PEA. 

        If you would like to do some additional self-directed preparation prior to the course, please visit this link http://highered.mcgraw-hill.com/sites/dl/free/007351098x/451682/sample_ch05.pdf

        TRAUMA Courses

        TRAUMA COURSES

        Welcome to our new registration page where we have combined access to all our Trauma courses in one spot!

        We offer two trauma courses and a description of both is provided below

        First is the Assessment and Management of the Adult and Paediatric Trauma Patient.

        Second is the Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS).  

        Assessment and Management of the Adult and Paediatric Trauma Patient. This one-day, non-certification and non-stressful trauma course has been designed by QRS Educational Services for all front-line health care professionals who are working in remote rural, non-urban and non-trauma emergency departments with patients who present with trauma.This course has been developed after receiving numerous requests from staff in a wide-variety of emergency settings who wanted to be more confident in managing the trauma patient.

        The focus of this course will be on establishing a systematic and rapid assessment, recognizing stable vs. unstable trauma, and stabilizing of the patient presenting with airway and respiratory compromise, shock, and neurological trauma. 

        Class size is restricted to allow opportunities for mock scenarios and demonstration on some of the emergency procedures done for patient stabilization. 

        Please contact us if you would like to schedule this one-day Adult and Paediatric Trauma course at your location.

        Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS)

        If you require a certification trauma course, such as TNCC or ITLS, please check out the PHTLS course. What makes the PHTLS course ideal is the fact that the course is tailored to the where the participants are working: pre-hospital EMS or Emergency departments in non-trauma hospitals and this course includes scenarios involving the paediatric trauma patient.

        PHTLS is recognized around the world as the leading certification program for pre-hospital trauma care and pre-trauma centre hospital care. PHTLS is a solid 16 hour course for emergency medical responders, EMTs, paramedics, physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and NPs. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient stabilization and management by all providers involved in the delivery of pre trauma-hospital care through global education centered on the most current evidence-based research findings.  PHTLS emphasizes patient assessment, learning and application of critical life-saving skills, and stresses the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient, as a unique entity with specific needs.  PHTLS includes the management and stabilization of the adult, elderly and paediatric trauma patients.

         "The geography of our country is huge. We have highways and farms and ATV's and boat propellers.  And the further you are from a trauma centre, the more important the skills this course teaches are."  Dr. Barbara Mainville, PHTLS Supervising Medical Director, Provincial Coordinator for Ontario.

        Please contact us if you would like to schedule a PHTLS course at your location.

        PHTLS Registration Process:

        Please register early, as course enrolment is limited. Please allow yourself adequate preparation time  (eg 3 -6 weeks) as you are expected to demonstrate knowledge of the material.
