Who Should Attend?
Industry professionals seeking insights from clinical decision makers in electrophysiology.
What are the Learning Objectives?
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:
- Gain a basic understanding of clinical decision making related to Heart Failure, Atrial Fibrillation, and Ventricular Arrhythmias
- Learn about the pathophysiology of cardiomyopathies and the device-based strategies for treating heart failure and preventing sudden cardiac arrest
- Hear the latest trends in pacing therapies
- Understand the genetics, pathophysiology, and clinical presentations of atrial fibrillation
- Review the state-of-the-art and future technologies for treating atrial arrhythmias
- Appreciate the range of strategies employed to treat patients with life threatening ventricular arrhythmias
Why Should I Attend?
The attendee will have the opportunity to look at the world of clinical cardiac electrophysiology through the eyes of busy practitioners who are experts in the field. This will prepare them to better meet the challenges in their professional environment, and anticipate the needs of their present and future customers.
How Many Seats Will Be Available?
By design, space is very limited - only 100 seats total will be offered. Thus, act now before the meeting is fully booked.
