An introduction to ECG to identify atrial fibrillation

We are incredibly proud to welcome friend and colleague of PIP nurse consultant Charlie Bloe to deliver this educational session.

During this event, Charlie describes some of the aspects of the ECG relevant to atrial fibrillation. This session would serve as an excellent introduction to ECG interpretation.

Speaker information

Charlie has a particular interest in two key areas of cardiology; the early management of acute coronary syndrome and embolic stroke prevention in Atrial Fibrillation. He established one of the first nurse-led thrombolysis practices in Scotland in 1990 and soon after arriving in NHS Highland in 2008 he developed the pre-hospital ECG support service that has significantly increased early delivery of life-saving thrombolysis treatment by Paramedics. His work around embolic stroke prevention in Atrial Fibrillation won First Place at the coveted Thrombus 2012 Awards.

BSc RN NDN ITU cert. Charlie graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1984 and subsequently pursued a career in Acute Cardiac Nursing. He has been particularly proactive in Cardiac Education and has authored over 50 interactive educational programmes to date. His work in cardiac CPD earned him The British Journal of Cardiac Nursing ‘Innovation in Education’ Award in 2008.
