Activity Description:

This program is designed to provide electrophysiologists, cardiologists, internists, and associated professionals with state-of-the-art information on invasive and non-invasive  electrocardiographic and eleotrophysiological tools used in the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders. Attendees of the symposium will develop an understanding of the correct approach to patients with atrial fibrillation, other atrial ventricular tachycardias, and risk factors for sudden death.

  • Discuss the considerations in using drug therapy for atrial fibrillation.
  • Discuss new techniques and technologies used during complex EP device and ablation cases.
  • Identify patients with unusual arrhythmia syndromes including long QT Syndrome, Early Repolarizatlon Syndrome, and Brugada Syndrome.
  • Discuss risk of sudden death in young patients, athletes, and those with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
  • Identify epicardia origin of VT in patients with VT in the setting of nonischemic cardiomyopathy.
