Mayo Clinic Campus - Phillips Hall
This program will focus on diagnosis and management of complex and challenging device related subjects encountered in clinical practice for cardiac rhythm management(CRM). This case-based learning course will provide an update on the indications, procedure lab techniques, new technologies and practice trends, and innovations. The course will also provide state-of-the-art management in complex and unique cases. Learning methods will include integrated lectures, imaging modalities, animal lab hands on, pre-recorded cases, and live cases to interact with the audience with in-depth discussions.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- master cardiac anatomy relevant to device implant and extraction
- differentiate indications for pacemakers, ICDs, subcutaneous ICDs, resynchronization therapies (CRT), and lead extraction
- describe newer technologies such as leadless pacing and LV endocardial CRT
- demonstrate knowledge on His bundle physiology pacing vs. CRT
- interpret complex and unique device implant and lead extraction cases
- describe device and lead design for guiding device programming and trouble shooting
This symposium is designed for electrophysiologists, EP fellows-in-training, device implanters, lab staff, and industrial partners (clinical and technical support staff).
