Cardiology Conferences

Learning objectives
The learning objectives of this course are to have the attendees be able to: a) understand the role of imaging in identifying patients at risk of sudden cardiac death (SCD), b) appreciate the particular issues regarding preventing SCD in athletes, c) discuss the non-traditional device options for managing SCD, e)  recognize the role of genetic testing for SCD, f) discuss the approach to evaluation of unexplained cardiac arrest, g) describe the clinical aspects of arrhythmogenic RV cardiomyopathy, h) understand the interaction of SCD and heart failure, i) describe the current approaches to catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT), j) appreciate the management options in a patient with VT storm.
 
Course Description
In the United States alone, there are approximately 400,000 sudden cardiac deaths (SCDs) per year; SCD is the leading cause of death among adults over the age of 40. However, SCD can be prevented, in many instances, through early recognition and treatment. In addition, advances in management of SCD survivors have decreased morbidity and improved survival.

This course will provide didactic sessions on various aspects of managing the diverse population at risk of sudden cardiac death, with respect to both primary and secondary prevention, as well as acute management following cardiac arrest.  The program format also includes interactive case discussions to highlight salient features in managing this difficult patient population.
