The symposium will cover a broad range of topics focused on management of heart rhythm disorders including exercise and arrhythmias, screening for silent atrial fibrillation, patient selection for catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation, as well as overlap of arrhythmias with heart failure, lung disease, and adult congenital heart disease. Other topics include the biological pacemaker, lead extractions and ablation of ventricular tachycardia.

This year's program will feature a concurrent afternoon breakout session for allied healthcare professionals interested in enhancing their knowledge of anticoagulationissues in the EP lab, patient education and follow up of the EP lab patient, remote monitoring of electrical devices, and the role of the genetic counselor in the arrhythmia clinic. 



Objectives
  1. Apply acquired knowledge and competence in practice to improve atrial fibrillation diagnosis and management
  2. Determine which patients with atrial fibrillation will benefit from catheter ablation techniques
  3. Explore new developments in cardiac implantable devices such as loop recorders, pacemakers and defibrillators
  4. Utilize new tools and devices, and other evidence-based recommendations to improve patient care and reduce the risk of stroke or sudden cardiac death
  5. Select the optimal approach to managing patients with postural and ventricular tachycardia
  6. Specific to Allied Healthcare learners: Describe anticoagulation issues in the EP lab as well as patient education and follow up of the EP lab patient
