Cardiac Dysrhythmia Conference 2018


Program Overview

Course Description:

The purpose of the planned Dysrhythmia Conference is to update healthcare providers on a variety of heart rhythm disorders including atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia and sudden death. Atrial fibrillation is the most common abnormal heart rhythm encountered in clinical practice, affecting 3 million people in the United States, and the incidence and prevalence of AF continues to increase.  The effective and safe management of patients with AF poses a major challenge to healthcare providers and systems and we plan to review recent developments in AF management. This course will review anticoagulation strategies to reduce risk of stroke in AF patients, and will update attendants about cardiac implantable electronic devices such as implantable loop recorders, pacemakers and defibrillators and review patients who may benefit from such devices. Presenters will also discuss new technologies available such as leadless pacemakers and left atrial appendage occlusion for patients with atrial fibrillation.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Explain the available treatment options available for patients with atrial fibrillation.

  2. Identify ECG findings that may be associated with sudden death and that may require evaluation.

  3. Recognize new technologic advances available to treat patients with heart rhythm disorders.
