Mark E Josephson Twenty-Sixth Annual State-of-the-Art Arrhythmia Symposium

Co-Sponsored Event


Activity Description:

This annual symposium was created to provide the busy clinician, associated professional, and electrophysiologist with “state-of-the-art” information on arrhythmia diagnosis and management. It is presented in a format that permits each group the opportunity to focus on some of their specific issues and concerns as well as to review topics of common interest.

Current information on invasive and non-invasive electrocardiographic and electrophysiologic tools used in the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders will be presented. Attendees will develop an understanding of the best practice approaches to diagnosing and treating patients with atrial fibrillation, other atrial and ventricular arrhythmias, and risk factors for sudden death.
