The International Forum of Arrhythmias’ main focus is to update in mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias in a collegial atmosphere as interactive as possible and case based if applicable. Sessions on basic clinical electrophysiology will also be provided. The most popular parts of the IFA, Heart Failure Summit and  Atrial Fibrillation Forum will take place this year as well with the contribution of the global leaders in the  field. You are invited to attend the IFA to be part of the latest science. For more information, please visit www.uccvs2018.org .

The international CMR community will gather in Barcelona for CMR 2018, a joint EuroCMR*/SCMR meeting organised by the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging (EACVI), a registered branch of the European Society of Cardiology, and the Society for Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (SCMR).

CMR 2018 will focus on the theme of “Improving Clinical Value by Technical Advances”, emphasizing the common goal of improving clinical outcomes in cardiovascular disease through innovation in basic MR development and medical engineering.

By providing a space where experts from all over the world with different experience and background share knowledge, the meeting offers more than 35 hours of presentations and cutting-edge information both on a novice and advanced level.

The Duke Sports Cardiology and Sudden Death in Athletes Symposium has been designed to enhance learners’ knowledge and their competency to incorporate evidence-based updates in the care of athletes in order to mitigate their risk for sudden cardiac death (SCD). Other topics will include evaluating the unique characteristics of an athlete’s heart, prescribing appropriate testing strategies and effectively interpreting test results, as well as the pros and cons of using EKG screening in athletes.

This symposium is a multi-specialty Cardiovascular educational symposium in North America on the frontier science of left atrial appendage. This topic is of tremendous interest in the practice of cardiovascular care. Over a period of two days, the symposium will offer very informative presentations on the anatomy, physiology and pathological aspects of the left atrial appendage along with old and new therapeutic strategies of stroke prophylaxis including cardiac devices for LAA exclusion. The worldwide presenters are the leaders in the field with a great depth of practical expertise in the science.

The Heart Rhythm Society's Annual Board Review Course is the preferred resource for physicians seeking a comprehensive review of content focused on preparation for the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) certification and recertification examinations in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology. Board Review Course also provides preparation for the International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners (IBHRE) exams for electrophysiology (CEPS) and device (CCDS) certification. The course is led by internationally recognized faculty members and offers attendees a chance to review the essential exam areas described in the ABIM blueprint in both didactic and case-based forms. For those not preparing for an exam, the course provides an excellent update and overview of cardiac electrophysiology.

The Conference is jointly provided by Charlotte Area Health Education Center, Carolinas HealthCare System, CaroMont Health, and Novant Health. This inaugural conference will bring to the forefront the emerging technologies and treatment strategies for Electrophysiology (EP) and heart failure patient populations.  Experts in the field of cardiac care management and electrophysiology will present on a variety of topics. Breakout session tracks will allow those interested in devices, EP lab, and clinical care to attend sessions  relevant to their interests and specialties.

<br><br>Continuing education credit will be provided for nurses and physician assistants. Applications will be made for AARC-CRCE credit for Respiratory Therapists and for AART credit for Radiology Techs.

The purpose of this symposium is to update medical practitioners in the greater Midwest region on the future of cardiac electrophysiology (EP), and on new diagnosis and treatment guidelines in the care and management of patients with arrhythmias, heart failure, and other issues impacting the electrical system of the body. Participants will learn about advances in ablation techniques, device management, appropriate use criteria, and survey new developments in guidelines and recommendations. A review of clinical trials that have helped change the clinical practice of EP will also be held. Participants in this symposium will examine the latest trends in Left Atrial Appendage (LAA) treatment options and gain a greater understanding of anticoagulation and stroke prophylaxis.
