Cardiac Rhythm Device Summit: Implantation, Management, and Follow Up

Swissotel Chicago,
323 E. Wacker Drive,
Chicago 60601, United States

Hundreds of thousands of patients receive cardiac rhythm devices each year for brady or tachyarrhythmias and heart failure. In addition, the number of people who may benefit from an implantable cardioverter de brillator (ICD) and/or cardiac resynchronization device (CRT) has substantially increased in the past decade. Evolving device technology has increased programming complexity, follow-up, and management. Cardiac implantable device management related

to electrophysiology remains a major part of daily practice for cardiologists, electrophysiologists, and non-physician caregivers involved in the management of these devices.

Presentations will highlight the following:

1. Update on cardiac pacing technology

2. Review information for device management germane to patient management

3. Lead extraction tips

4. Cardiovascular implantable electronic device infection management
