Course Description

Innovations in devices, techniques, and recent clinical trials in cardiac electrophysiology have created knowledge and competency gaps among practitioners. Experts in the field will address these gaps with in-depth didactics on state-of-the-art subjects in electrophysiology and device therapy and present information on the newest approaches and techniques in the diagnosis and management of electrophysiology disorders, including atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. Participants will leave with up-to-date practical information which will have widespread clinical application.

Target Audience

This program is designed for, but not limited to, cardiologists, electrophysiologists, cardiovascular fellows, electrophysiology fellows, nurses and all healthcare providers involved in the care of complex arrhythmia patients.

Learning Objectives

After completing this program, the learner will be better able to:

  • Describe the latest techniques and clinical trial results with catheter ablation procedures that focus on targets or drivers of the AF substrate
  • Discuss how stroke prevention with VKA and non-VKA oral anticoagulants, and left atrial appendage occlusion devices can be used more effectively to avoid underutilization of stroke prevention therapies in patients with AF
  • Demonstrate awareness of cardiac implantable electronic devices, allowing greater ability to address questions, problems, and other issues related to CIEDs in their patients
  • Appraise His-bundle pacing options, cardiac devices such as leadless pacemakers, subcutaneous ICDs, and wearable defibrillators
  • Recognize the advances in the management of ventricular arrhythmias such as antiarrhythmic drug options, premature ventricular depolarization (PVD) ablation, VT-substrate ablation, sustained VT ablation, MRI image-guided VT ablation, voltage mapping, ICD implantation, and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)
  • Describe the challenges and new opportunities in lead management and appreciate new technologies in imaging and surgery that have the potential to improve outcomes
  • Assess the role of cardiac surgery in invasive electrophysiologic procedures
