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.
The Heart Rhythm Society, established in 1979 (originally named the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology, or NASPE) has been led by some of the most accomplished and distinguished cardiac pacing and electrophysiology professionals.
HRS Ambassadors serve as the Society’s official representative with designated external organizations.
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.
