RIO 2020 - - Complex Arrhythmias Made Simple: Ablation of Structural Heart VT – VT Ablation

Overview

In this session ‘Rhythm Interventions Online 2020 – Complex Arrhythmias Made Simple: Ablation of structural heart VT - VT ablation’, a live case and an international panel address some of the most pertinent issues facing the practicing electrophysiologist.

 

Rhythm Interventions Online (RIO) is a new innovative virtual event that will bring together a leading international faculty to create a rich, interactive experience to best inform the global electrophysiology community of the latest developments and advances in clinical practice. 

 

Led by Course Director, Prof Richard Schilling, Barts Heart Centre, London, and delivered through a crafted programme of discussion, opinion, and live cases from leading international centres, RIO will comprise twelve hours of best-in-class learning.

Terms & Conditions

Radcliffe Education requires contributors to our CME programmes to disclose any relevant financial relationships that have occurred within the past 12 months that could create a conflict of interest. These will be identified in the faculty section if applicable.

 

The session of ‘Rhythm Interventions Online 2020 – Complex Arrhythmias Made Simple: Ablation of structural heart VT - VT ablation’ is accredited by the European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) for 1 hour of external CME credits.

 

Each participant should claim only those hours of credit that have actually been spent in the educational activity. EBAC works according to the quality standards of the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), which is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).

  • Electrophysiologists
  • Arrhythmologists
  • General cardiologists
  • Cardiac catheterization technologists and technicians
  • Physiologists
  • Device Implanting Specialist

Learning Objectives

The overall programme, Rhythm Interventions Online 2020, endeavours to best address the following learning objectives:

  • Discuss the merits of using ablation in the day surgery setting and as a first-line treatment for atrial fibrillation
  • Summarise recent clinical data on emerging ablative techniques for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia (VT)
  • Recall how to carry out ablative procedures including fluoro-free ablation, high power ablation, ablation of structural heart VT, convergent ablation and ablation in atrial tachycardia
  • Recall how to carry out leadless pacing and His bundle pacing for cardiac synchrony
