The program highlights key topics in cardiology to keep the practitioner current, with an emphasis on cases, updates, and clinical guidelines.  The diagnosis, management, and prevention of common rhythm disorders, atrial fibrillation, and ventricular arrhythmias will be reviewed along with challenging aspects of congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, and myocardial disease.  Special sessions will highlight ECG pearls useful in all aspects of cardiology. There will be an emphasis on patient management, case-based presentations, and panel discussion sessions to provide interaction between the faculty and attendees.  Mayo Clinic and guest faculty will share “pearls” to aid in the evaluation and assessment of patients with commonly seen cardiovascular diseases.

COURSE HIGHLIGHTS
• Atrial Fibrillation: Drugs, Ablation, Stroke Prevention, New Drugs, and Closure Devices;
• ECG Pearls for Clinical Practice
• Heart Failure Update: Drugs, Devices (Resynchronization, LVAD, Newer Treatments), and Remote Monitoring
• Long QT Syndrome and Genetic Testing: What You Need to Know
• Ventricular Arrhythmias and Sudden Cardiac Death
• Sports and Heart Disease: How to Counsel Your Patients

Destination Information

Kauai is Hawaii’s fourth largest island and is sometimes called the “Garden Isle,” which is an entirely accurate description. The oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is draped in emerald valleys, sharp mountain spires and jagged cliffs, aged by time and the elements. Centuries of growth have formed tropical rainforests, forking rivers and cascading waterfalls.
