Arrhythmias and Clinical Electrophysiology

The Arrhythmias and Clinical Electrophysiology Learning Pathway addresses hot topics and debates surrounding arrhythmias, atrial fibrillation, new drugs and anticoagulants, and devices. Plus, attendees will have plenty of opportunity to reach out and interact with faculty and colleagues in sessions that address the best management of anticoagulation and stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation and the role new drugs or devices such as the left atrial appendage occlusion devices play.

The Heart Rhythm Society and ACC Joint Symposium (session #622) takes up controversies in arrhythmia management and includes questions related to use of ablation as first line therapy for atrial fibrillation and whether patients with right bundle branch block should receive CRT. Also, look for an in-depth and case-based discussion of the syncope guidelines scheduled for release close to or at ACC.17 in Syncope: What's New (session #739).

ECG Screening in Athletes: The Great Debate (session #606) continues to be a high interest topic for all cardiovascular professionals. This year’s session includes a special ACC Talk, Talking to the Athlete with a Heart Rhythm Problem, which general cardiologists, CHD specialists and others who care for student athletes will find interesting.

All health care providers involved in the care of patients with arrhythmias will benefit from attending the Arrhythmias and Clinical EP Learning Pathway sessions. Get up to date on caring for patients with arrhythmias and its possible complications.
