Arrhythmia Research Summit
One Day Event - Nov. 19, 2014
Four Day Event with Scientific Sessions - Nov. 16-19, 2014
McCormick Place
Chicago, Ill.

This summit will bring together faculty and participants involved in the areas of arrhythmia mechanisms, diagnosis, and management to participate in topics devoted to cutting edge research and therapeutic innovation. A diverse range of topics will permit clinicians, basic scientists, biomedical engineers and outcomes experts to participate. 
The one day program will be structured to be highly interactive promoting free exchange of ideas.
Areas of Expertise:
Cardiology, Resuscitation, Stroke, Electrocardiography, Cardiovascular Surgery, Intervention, Arrhythmia/ECG, Genetics, Epidemiology, Cardiovascular Imaging, Nursing, etc.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of the summit, participants will be able to:
  1. Describe known and novel risk factors, pathophysiologic changes, genetic loci, and biomarkers associated with increased risk of AF and their potential implications for AF prevention
  2. Recognize important new avenues for research in assessing and modifying risk for AF
  3. Explain optimal use of pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic interventions for managing or terminating AF
  4. Identify and describe emerging treatments and technologies likely to improve outcomes for patients with AF
  5. Review current and emerging research explaining mechanisms, risk factors, and biomarkers associated with VT/VF and SCD
  6. Research and identify markers and strategies to improve assessment of risk for SCD associated with VT/VF
  7. Understand and appropriately implement patients for guideline-recommended interventions for ventricular arrhythmia
  8. Recognize benefits and risks of available interventions for VT/VF
  9. Identify and explain research findings, including research into new and emerging medications and technologies that can improve outcomes for patients with VT/VF
  10. Contribute to research efforts aimed at clarifying mechanisms leading to VT/VF and from VT/VF to SCD and identifying improved or new strategies for prevention or intervention
  11. Recognize barriers to early initiation of both bystander in-hospital CPR
  12. Contribute to the development of education and research toward improving resuscitation outcomes
