14th Annual Learn from the Experts Approach to the Unknown Tracing 

11:45 a.m. – 1:45 p.m.
McCormick Place West, Skyline Ballroom 375A

Sponsored by Medtronic

This activity is specific to the needs of Fellows-in-Training

Utilizing an interactive case-based approach, this course, directed by George J. Klein, MD, is designed to instruct EP Fellows on the interpretation of electrocardiographic and intracardiac tracings and recordings. The course will include discussions on mechanisms, diagnosis, and treatment of arrhythmias.

 

Improving Persistent AF Ablation Outcomes through a Multidisciplinary Approach

11:45 a.m. – 1:45 p.m.
Hyatt Regency McCormick Place, Regency Ballroom C-E

Sponsored by MediaSphere Medical, LLC, and Cine-Med
Supported by AtriCure 

Ablation outcomes for the treatment of persistent or long standing persistent AF remain suboptimal, as many highly touted approaches have proven ineffective in certain patient populations. The symposium will evaluate the potential impact of emerging hybrid ablation procedures for improving outcomes in patients who are not optimal candidates for catheter ablation alone.

The leading experts will evaluate existing challenges for the treatment of persistent or long standing persistent AF, and assess patient selection and techniques necessary to enhance outcomes with multidisciplinary hybrid approaches. The symposium lectures, case reviews, and panel discussions are complemented with a dedicated Q&A session that enables interactive audience participation.

His-Bundle Pacing: A Case-Based Approach

6:30 – 8:45 p.m.
Radison Blu, Atlantic Ballroom C/D

Sponsored by Medtronic

Right ventricular (RV) apical pacing has been the standard practice for patients requiring permanent ventricular pacing; however, long-term RV apical pacing has its drawbacks. Is His-bundle pacing a feasible alternative to RV pacing? Join us for an in-depth discussion of His-bundle pacing with an expert panel of electrophysiologists. They will share their experiences with His-bundle pacing, their clinical results (both acute and chronic), and their criteria for selecting patients for His-bundle pacing lead implantation.

 

EP Cases for the Real World

6:30 – 9:15 p.m.

How Innovation and Cybersecurity Impact Physicians
and the Patients We Treat: Balancing the Risks and
Patient Benefits with Medical Technology Advancements

6:30 – 8:30 pm
Regency Ballroom A, Hyatt Regency McCormick Place

Sponsored by MediaSphere Medical, LLC, and Cine-Med
Supported by Abbott

The symposium will evaluate how medical technology advancements must be balanced against cybersecurity risks and patient benefits. Medical technology with remote management solutions can improve patient outcomes, including quality of life, decrease in-office visits, and reduce healthcare costs. However, as medical technology become increasingly interconnected via the internet, hospital networks, and smartphones, there exists some risk for exploitation of cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Improving technology to address cybersecurity risk must be balanced with how to best care for patients’ benefit of medical technology advancements.
This educational symposium has been developed to raise awareness through the insights of leading experts who will provide reviews surrounding the current and future direction of medical technology cybersecurity for increasing standards of patient care while maintaining and enhancing security without compromising technology advancements and patient care. The symposium lectures and panel discussions are complemented with dedicated Q&A sessions that enable interactive audience participation with the leading faculty experts.

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy 2017: Building a Program to Get All Patients Successfully to the Finish Line

7:00 - 9:15 p.m.
Hilton Chicago Hotel, Waldorf Room

Sponsored by The Cleveland Clinic Center for Continuing Education
Supported by unrestricted educational grants by multiple companies

CRT has been proven in many well-designed clinical trials to improve quality of life and functional status in patients with HF, to improve pump efficiency, and to enable patients to live longer. Careful attention to appropriate device-related programming can maximize the benefits to be gained with CRT. Remote monitoring of patients' status using innovative sensors may in future years enhance HF patient outcomes. As new information about the benefits of CRT are demonstrated, it may become possible to reduce the burden attributable to HF disease progression with this relatively new therapeutic modality. The goal of this activity is to provide healthcare providers a state of the art update of CRT in 2017.

Accreditation Statement: The Cleveland Clinic Foundation Center for Continuing Education is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Cleveland Clinic Foundation Center for Continuing Education designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Participants claiming CME credit from this activity may submit the credit hours to the American Osteopathic Association for Category 2 credit.
