Course Description

Join this international, expert faculty as they discuss innovations in devices, techniques, recent clinical trials and current guidelines in cardiac electrophysiology. Topics include ablation for atrial fibrillation, stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation, methods for mapping of ventricular arrhythmias, new frontiers in pacing and lead management, sudden cardiac death and CHD.

This 1.5-day program will provide an opportunity for both faculty and attendees to interact in a forum which will encourage open discussion of arrhythmia management, research, perceived challenges and future directions.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this educational activity, practitioners will be able to do the following:

  • Identify and analyze the latest scientific advances and innovations in the field of heart rhythm disorders.
  • Integrate and evaluate emerging evidence and procedural options for prevention, detection, risk assessment, rhythm and rate management, and stroke prevention into the care of patients with atrial fibrillation.
  • Select appropriate, evidence-directed pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to achieve optimal outcomes for patients with heart rhythm disorders.
  • Demonstrate awareness of cardiac implantable electronic devices, allowing greater ability to address questions, problems, and other issues related to CIEDs in their patients.
  • Integrate preparation, recognition and avoidance of device and ablation complications.
  • Discuss the role, utility and limitations of imaging (fluoroscopy, intracardiac echocardiography, electroanatomic mapping) in electrophysiologic procedures.

Target Audience

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