Update on Arrhythmias and Syncope
Saturday, June 8, 2019
7:00am - 12:30pm
The Inn at St. John's
This course will be particularly relevant to cardiologists, internists, family physicians, and other health care
providers managing patients with cardiac arrhythmias.
Cardiac arrhythmias, particularly atrial fibrillation, affect many patients and are a common clinical problem
encountered in daily practice. However, as a result of recent advances in basic and clinical research, and
development of new technology, our understanding of the mechanisms of arrhythmias and management
strategies rapidly evolves. The goal of this course is to present and discuss recent advances in the
management of cardiac arrhythmias with primary care physicians, internists, and cardiologists.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will:
• learn more about recent advances in treatment options in patients with atrial fibrillation and how to select
patients for appropriate therapy.
• better understand the new guidelines for anticoagulation in patients with atrial fibrillation.
• learn about management strategies of patients with PVC and ventricular tachycardia.
• be able to identify patients appropriate for leadless implantable devices, ICD and cardiac resynchronization
• learn more about management of sleep apnea and arrhythmias.
