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 electrophysiologic 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 the patients with atrial fibrillation, other atrial ventricular tachycardias and risk factors for sudden death.
