This expert webinar is designed to improve knowledge around the management of arrhythmias in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). It assists secondary healthcare professionals to:
- better understand the pathophysiology of atrial fibrillation (AFib) and arrhythmias in HCM patients
- determine the best management strategy for symptomatic AFib patients
This webinar is 60 minutes duration.
Cardiologists, echocardiographers, electrophysiologists, cardiac sonographers, cardiology nurses, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, physician assistants, pediatricians, pediatric nurses.
This activity is supported by educational grant funding from Bristol Myers Squibb and Cytokinetics. Learners may participate in this educational activity free of charge.
- Welcome and overview of arrhythmias and HCM
- Pharmacologic management of atrial fibrillation
- Pharmacologic management of ventricular arrhythmias
- Non-pharmacologic management of atrial fibrillation
- Non-pharmacologic management of ventricular arrhythmias
- Q&A and closing remarks
By the end of this activity, attendees will be able to:
- outline the risk of developing atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias in patients with HCM
- summarize the consequences of atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias on patients with HCM
- describe appropriate pharmacological management strategies for patients with atrial fibrillation and HCM
- describe appropriate non-pharmacological management strategies for patients with atrial fibrillation and HCM
This activity will provide continuing education (CE) credits for physicians, physician assistants, nurses and nurse practitioners.
