The electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the most commonly performed investigations in the Emergency Department (ED), and is an extremely useful adjunct that guides diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. In the majority of cases, nurses are the first health care professional to assess the patient, and to record an ECG, yet anecdotal evidence would suggest that very few emergency nurses actively review, interpret and act on the findings from the ECG.
