EXNS 492 - Clinical Testing and Interpretation
4 credit hours
This course is designed to prepare individuals to make intelligent decisions in the world of practice by providing them with knowledge of a comprehensive functional and diagnostic examination of the cardiovascular responses to graded exercise testing. Emphasis will be given to electrophysiology, mechanisms of arrhythmias, normal electrical activation of the heart, axis determination and the normal 12-lead electrocardiogram.
Additionally, this course will prepare individuals in the use of the Electromyography (EMG) to measure and assess the function and health of muscles, including the nerve cells that control them (motor neurons). Course content will include the study of the electrical signals that cause muscles to contract. The course will prepare the individual to translate EMG signals into graphs, sounds or numerical values. Prerequisite(s): EXNS 380 and EXNS 398.
