In this recorded webinar, Jennifer Carlquist, PA-C, will give you a process and practice for spotting 5 concerning arrhythmias you can't afford to get wrong on EKGs. She'll teach you to plot the patterns and read between the lines, so you make good catches instead of misses.
This recorded program covers:
Identify two high-risk findings that can kill young people. Learn why you should get an EKG any time a young patient presents with palpitations or syncope, and how to look for ticking time bombs. Differentiate STEMI from its mimics so you can determine when to treat and discharge, refer to primary care or cardiology, or rush to the ED. Decipher EKGs to spot warning signs and pathologic patterns (delta waves, biphasic waves, Wolff Parkinson White syndrome and more)
If you appreciated the practical, evidence-based pearls presented during the webinar, you're sure to benefit from EB Medicine's practice-improving resources. EB Medicine joined forces with Jennifer Carlquist, PA-C, to bring you The Urgent Care EKG Course, an in-depth training program focused on EKG interpretation essentials and best practices. This expert-guided self-study course picks up where your academic program and previous training likely left off. The Urgent Care EKG Course gives you practical, hands-on, time-tested techniques for enhancing clinical skills, improving accuracy of EKG interpretation, and, in so doing, boosting clinician confidence.
Urgent care operators have struggled for years with hiring and retaining providers skilled in injury procedures. When loyal patients are turned away for reasons advertised as treatable at the clinic, the patient's trust is broken and they may never return.
According to the Journal of Urgent Care Medicine, laceration repairs performed in urgent cares have decreased by 27.7% from 2019 to 2022. The Urgent Care Association reported that 15% of urgent care providers are not offering basic X-ray services at all, while many more turn patients away when they do not have staff to support their radiology equipment. While operators cite skill and cost as barriers to entry, research shows that there is a higher price to pay for both providers and patients in not making the small investments in these services that offer big returns.

In this webinar led by Dr. Christopher Chao and moderated by Dr. Joseph Toscano, tick-borne disease is addressed as an emerging health threat in the United States. Ticks are known to transmit bacterial, viral, and parasitic disease to humans, and while early treatment of tick-borne illness usually results in good outcomes, a missed diagnosis can lead to disability and death. In the urgent care setting, tick-borne illnesses can be challenging to diagnose due to nonspecific presentations and the limitations of testing in early disease.
Within this hour, Dr. Chao addresses identification of tick-borne illnesses in the United States, proper tick removal procedure, signs and symptoms of illness, limitations of lab testing, and more.
Dr. Chao is the current President of the College of Urgent Care Medicine and an active member of the Urgent Care Association. Dr. Chao is also an urgent care physician with WakeMed Health and Hospitals in Raleigh, North Carolina. He is passionate about teaching and mentoring students and clinicians who want to transition to the practice of urgent care medicine.

Although dizziness is common in the ED, understanding the fundamentals of physical examination findings in dizzy patients can be difficult. By using a "timing-and-triggers" approach instead of the old "what do you mean, 'dizzy'?" approach, you can more confidently make the correct diagnosis and ensure that patients with central causes of dizziness receive appropriate care in a timely manner.
