Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Devices (CEIDS) session during Heart Rhythm 2019 will be an incredible opportunity to appraise the present and strive towards the future for all heart rhythm professionals.Dhanunjaya R. Lakkireddy, MD, FHRS
Wednesday, May 8
Session Description: The audience will gain knowledge on how to implant LV leads in patients with challenging Coronary Sinus (CS) anatomy.
Session Description: An up to date review of the developing understandings of the relationship between stroke, atrial fibrillation, the left atrial appendage and anatomy, and implications for diagnosis and treatment.
Session Description: Left atrial appendage isolation is an established treatment for stroke prevention in AF patients, but is amongst the newer skills required by electrophysiologists. Come learn how to stay safe and avoid complications in this fast-expanding field, in a multi-disciplinary session.
Session Description: Cardiac monitoring has become increasingly sophisticated. The medical field has evolved from bulky less convenient external monitors to something very robust. This session discusses the clinical utility of a wide variety of monitoring devices including ELRs, ILRs, sticky patches, smart phones and smart watches. ILRs are an important diagnostic tool in clinical practice. This session will provide a practical approach to managing ILRs in day to day operations ranging from how to choose a device to how to program settings for improving patient satisfaction, reduce costs and increase the diagnostic yield.

Session Description: Most of the time, transvenous CIED implantation is a straight shot. However, at times anatomy throws us a curve-ball. This session deals with such challenges and offers management options.
S-JS01. WSA/HRS Joint Session: Progress in Cardiac Implantable Electronic Devices: Miniaturization in Technology and Extra-Cardiac Approach
Session Description: Great progress has been made in the field of CIED technology. This session is a summary of current indications, directions, limitations, follow-up and future innovation for novel leadless pacemakers, S-ICD and wearable cardiac defibrillators. In addition, it will update the audience on latest knowledge regarding this important topic. A Joint Session presented by the World Society of Arrhythmias (WSA).
Session Description: His-Purkinje conduction system pacing is a new physiologic pacing method and become a hot topic recently. Chinese electrophysiologists have done some excellent work and could share experience with doctors in U.S.A. and other countries. This program has been discussed with Professor Dejia Huang,the president of CSPE and professor Su Zhang, the former president of CSPE. We also contacted with Chairman and all speakers. A Joint Session presented by the Chinese Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology (CSPE).
Session Description: This rapid fire case based session focuses on post implant issues in SICD and leadless pacemakers.
MP05. Managing data - Beyond the Device Implantation!
Session Description: This session helps understand innovative methods of data management that is obtained from CIEDs
Session Description: Case based learning in understanding complex clinical scenarios and use of appropriate scientific data and decision making processes to arrive at specific endpoint in safe and effective clinical care.
Session Description: This session is designed to provide comprehensive knowledge on all the latest developments in leadless pacing technology
Session Description: CIED extraction can be an exercise in on-the-spot biomedical engineering. This session will cover tools and practices designed to make the extraction procedure more successful and less risky.
Session Description: His Bundle pacing has become increasingly recognized as an important tool for improved and synchronized Ventricular pacing. This session provides a general overview of the concept of His Bundle pacing. Attendees can learn several practical pointers for appropriate identification of candidates, implantation techniques, avoid complications and improve success rates.

MP06. Nuances in CIEDs Implantation and Management
Session Description: This session focusses on various nuances involved in CIED implantation and management
Session Description: In this session, international experts will discuss their "tricks" for managing tough CRT cases. This will include not only the placement of conventional left ventricular leads, but also different alternatives.
Session Description: The session will provide a perspective for how risk stratification has evolved, what technologies are available and how risk stratification may be improved.
MP07. Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Devices - Present and Future
Session Description: This session focusses on various aspects of CIED use in clinical practice and lessons learnt over the years.
Session Description: Patients with systolic cardiomyopathy are at higher risk for sudden death than the general population. The most commonly used risk stratification tool for SCD risk is left ventricular ejection fraction. The evidence for ICD implantation in patients with low LVEF is less robust for nonischemics than for ischemics. Should we still be using LVEF to risk stratify in NICM?
Session Description: The audience will learn to make decisions about when to use CRT versus His bundle pacing.
Session Description: In this session, world-experts will debate the use of oral anticoagulant therapy to treat pacemaker and ICD patients with subclinical atrial fibrillation.
Session Description: This session is a case based learning on how to effectively incorporate guidelines for choosing appropriate therapies in clinical care situations.
Session Description: All CIED implanters encounter complications. How can we minimize and/or manage the most common ones? This session will reveal best practices.
Saturday, May 11
Session Description: This session will present recent research that will highlight ways to improve outcomes of cybersecurity threats to patients with implanted pacemakers and defibrillators.
Session Description: This is a didactic session that provides a comprehensive review of the evidence for the prevention of ventricular arrhythmias and ICD indications in special populations, with a special focus on the recent AHA/ACC/HRS Guideline for Management of Patients With Ventricular Arrhythmias and the Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death.
Session Description: In this session experienced physicians and surgeons will share their expertise with improving patient outcomes with the S-ICD.
