Cardiac Arrhythmias: An Interactive Update for Internal Medicine and Family Practice

Learn to better recognize, evaluate, and treat common heart rhythm problems. Bring your challenging cases, reinforce what you know, learn something new!

 

Description

This annual, full day, interactive conference provides a focused update on cardiac arrhythmia care for your patients. Cardiac arrhythmias may indicate serious heart disease, an increased susceptibility to stroke, or sudden cardiac death. On the other hand, many arrhythmias are relatively innocent. In any case, many arrhythmias are amenable to excellent treatment outcomes when physicians and nurses are well informed. Update your knowledge through presentations by experts in Cardiology and Cardiac Electrophysiology, panel-led question-and-answer sessions and lively case discussions using interactive technology.
