Event Overview
Welcome message:

According to the American Heart Association, cardiac arrhythmias have an estimated prevalence of 14.4 million patients in the United States, and they account for more than 40,000 deaths annually. New developments and advances in the management of cardiac arrhythmias, such as newer anticoagulants, atrial appendage closure devices and CIEDs afford benefits to patients who suffer from these conditions. Novel analytical approaches and important clinical trials challenge the practicing physician to implement translation of those discoveries into his clinical practice. The gaps that form between new knowledge and changing paradigms in the practice of medicine can only be filled with effective dissemination of the emerging information.


This one-day program is designed to provide clinicians with a review of selected topics in present day management of patients with cardiac arrhythmias, emphasizing new advances in the field and incorporating current guidelines and evidence-based principles of practice. The format will incorporate didactic lectures as well as case management studies and panel discussions with experts in the field.


Target Audience


This conference is intended for cardiologists, internists, primary care physicians and other health care professionals with a special interest in the evaluation, diagnosis and management of patients with cardiac arrhythmias.
