  • Overview

    As the burden of various cardiac rhythm disorders increases, and their management becomes more evolved and sophisticated, electrophysiologists (EPs) need to understand key concepts in electrophysiology science and management, including effectiveness and complications of the diagnosis, and to manage patients appropriately.

    This symposium will provide an opportunity for EPs and allied health professionals in electrophysiology to interact with an expert faculty. The faculty will encourage open discussions of data, guidelines, perceived challenges, and future directions in clinical practice to optimize patient care. The symposium is designed for physicians and allied health care providers who manage patients with cardiac rhythm disorders who are also at risk of comorbidities.

  • Learning Objectives

    • Appreciate the need for extended time periods (>14 days) when assessing atrial fibrillation episodes with ECG technology
    • Relate the importance of atrial fibrillation episode and duration using data from many unique patient data sets to optimize deep learning algorithms for detection of atrial fibrillation events
    • Discuss how data from wearable monitors could potentially help healthcare professionals develop personalized treatment plans and anticipate the need of intervention before symptoms due to arrhythmias, such as atrial fibrillation, occur


  • Target Audience

    This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of Cardiac Electrophysiologists and Allied Health Specialists in Electrophysiology.
