This course will provide comprehensive instruction for diagnosing common and complex cardiac arrhythmias in the electrophysiology laboratory and achieving effective and safe ablation. Case-based illustrative presentations will highlight diagnostic dilemmas and key management strategies. Experts discussing detailed patient cases provide a step-by-step analysis and in-depth review of approaches to catheter ablation for the spectrum of cardiac arrhythmias.
• Recognize the mechanisms underlying cardiac arrhythmias amenable to ablation
• Distinguish both normal and abnormal cardiac anatomy and its role in the genesis of
arrhythmias and ablation strategy
• Describe optimal mapping and ablation techniques for specific arrhythmias and clinical
• Discuss major risks associated with ablation
• Assess the value and limitations of high-end technology in the ablation process
• Identify the role for pre and intraprocedural imaging techniques to optimize outcomes
and increase safety of ablation procedures
The course is of interest for electrophysiologists, electrophysiology fellows, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, technologists, physician assistants and nurses/nurse practitioners.
