This course is designed to encourage discussion and promote improved patient outcomes in all our practices. We have chosen topics and presenters to cover the latest in familiar topics as well as map out areas of frontier exploration. There will be interaction between Primary Care and Electrophysiology physicians and plenty of time for questions.
At the end of this session, learners should be able to:
  • Interpret basic ECG
  • Outline the most common arrhythmias & their diagnosis
  • Compare advantages of pharmaceutical vs. device treatment
  • Determine the need to refer patients to EP
  • Describe Updates in Current Arrhythmia Management Strategies
