2 GOALS & OBJECTIVES Why You Should Attend: CVI s New Paradigms in Arrhythmia Management 2012 focuses on two major topics in management of patients with arrhythmias: atrial fibrillation and sudden cardiac arrest. We have assembled an impressive faculty of internationally recognized thought leaders and regional experts in the fields of electrophysiology and electrocardiographic interpretation for this day long educational initiative. The program agenda highlights risk stratification for sudden death; ECG recognition of channelopathies and genetic syndromes; the use of cardiac magnetic resonance in rhythm disorders, causes of sudden death in student athletes; complications of defibrillator therapy; pharmacologic management of atrial fibrillation; ablative therapy and other non-pharmacologic options for the management of atrial fibrillation, and genetic identification of arrhythmia syndromes. Target Audience: Cardiologists, primary care, emergency medicine, family practice, internal medicine and adolescent medicine physicians, radiologists, fellow, residents, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and nurses. Learning Objectives: After attending CVI s New Paradigms in Arrhythmia Management 2012: Atrial Fibrillation to Sudden Death, participants will be better able to: Recognize ECG patterns that might help identify individuals at risk for sudden cardiac death Describe clinical risk factors used in risk stratification for patients at risk for sudden cardiac death Identify specific ECG patterns caused by cardiac ion channel disorders Recognizing the genetic basis of sudden death syndromes particularly in the young and athletes Describe the utility of Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging to assess arrhythmic substrate Recognize disease states for which CMR is an effective diagnostic tool Recognize the cardiac causes of sudden death in young athletes Describe screening strategies and disqualification criteria for participation in sports Identify those individuals best served with implantable device therapy Identify causes for and consequences of appropriate and inappropriate defibrillator shocks Describe management of arrhythmias causing inappropriate therapy Describe newer device algorithms which can reduce inappropriate therapy Recognize specific ECG patterns associated with sudden cardiac death syndromes Compare and contrast ECG patterns of patients with Brugada, Long QT, IHSS, and RV Dysplasia Compare and contrast efficacy and safety of rate vs rhythm control for patients with atrial fibrillation Incorporate current guidelines and recommendations for management of atrial fibrillation to improve patient outcomes Utilize new therapeutic options and guidelines for pharmacologic management and control of atrial fibrillation Recognize the potential benefits and risks of newer forms of anticoagulation Recognize the values and limitations of warfarin therapy Recognize genetic variances in warfarin therapy in patients with different ethnic backgrounds Discuss improved outcomes associated with home monitoring services for patients on warfarin therapy Improve patient compliance with newer, more manageable options for anticoagulation therapy Identify individuals who would most benefit from ablation therapy for atrial fibrillation Recognize the potential risks and benefits of ablation therapy for atrial fibrillation Recognize the potential beneficial effects of atrial fibrillation ablation therapy in patients with severe heart failure Accreditation Statement: This event has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Pennsylvania Medical Society through the joint sponsorship of the Albert Einstein Medical Center and Cardiovascular Institute of Philadelphia. Albert Einstein Medical Center is accredited by the Pennsylvania Medical Society to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. Credit Designation Statement: AMA: Einstein Medical Center designates this live educational event for a maximum of 8.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s) TM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the educational event. AOA: This program is eligible for 8.0 credits in Category 2A of the American Osteopathic Association through the Pennsylvania Osteopathic Medical Association Foundation.
