This course is designed to provide the learner with the most up to date evidence for ICD based therapy.
International Winter Arrhythmia School is an excellent program designed for the Electrophysiology Community, including Cardiologist, Trainees/Fellows, EP Technicians/Nurses and Family Physicians.
This course will provide full coverage of all the latest electrophysiological technologies and procedures through live cases performed by elite international operators and lectures by leading scientists.
EP live is a two day intensive educational meeting targeting practicing electrophysiologists as well as fellows in training.
A normal heartbeat is controlled by a smooth, constant flow of electricity through the heart. A short-circuit anywhere along this electrical pathway can disrupt the normal flow of signals, causing an arrhythmia (an irregular heartbeat). Cardiac ablation is a procedure used to destroy these short-circuits and restore normal rhythm, or to block damaged electrical pathways from sending faulty signals to the rest of the heart.
Cardioversion is a corrective procedure where an electrical shock is delivered to the heart to convert, or change, an abnormal heart rhythm back to normal sinus rhythm. Most elective or "non-emergency" cardioversions are performed to treat atrial fibrillation (A Fib) or atrial flutter (AFL), non-life threatening abnormal heart rhythms. Cardioversion is used in emergency situations to correct an abnormal rhythm when it is accompanied by faintness, low blood pressure, chest pain, difficulty breathing, or loss of consciousness.
2002 Expert Consensus Statement: Radiofrequency Catheter Ablation in Children with and without Congenital Heart Disease1292
June 2002 — Based on the Consensus Conference held during the 21st Annual Scientific Sessions of the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology (NASPE; now known as Heart Rhythm Society), this consensus statement covers issues of specific cardiac arrhythmias in children with or without congenital heart disease (CHD), the special needs of children and patients with CHD, and how best to meet these needs.
