Cardiac Rhythm Device Summit: Implantation, Management, and Follow Up

This summit serves as a platform for collaboration, learning, and innovation as we explore the latest advancements and emerging trends in this critical area of cardiology. We look forward to engaging in discussions, networking opportunities, and exchanges of knowledge that will ultimately enhance patient care and outcomes.

The Cardiac Device Summit offers a comprehensive update on the indications, follow-up, and management of cardiac rhythm technology, focusing on essential clinical pearls. Each year, hundreds of thousands of patients undergo implantation of cardiac rhythm devices for various rhythm disorders such as bradyarrhythmia, tachyarrhythmias, and heart failure. Moreover, the population eligible for implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and/or cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) has risen significantly over the past decade.

With evolving device technology, there has been a notable increase in programming complexity, follow-up procedures, and management strategies. This summit aims to address these challenges and provide attendees with practical knowledge and skills to optimize patient care in this rapidly advancing field.
