Description

This session contains seven presentations regarding normal cardiac electrophysiology and the genesis of arrhythmia mechanisms and conduction abnormalities and the interpretation of intracardiac electrograms during EP studies.

  1. Electrical "anatomy" of the heart, normal and abnormal physiology - Cardiac anatomy for ablations and types of catheters used
  2. Basic EP - Action Potentials and Arrhythmia Mechanisms
  3. EP Lab and Interpretation of Intra-Cardiac Electrograms
  4. Clinical Decision Making in Arrhythmia Patients
  5. Fundamentals of Intracardiac Electrograms and Basic EP Testing
  6. Use of the 12 lead ECG in EP Cases
  7. EP Studies 101 (Measurements, Arrhythmia Induction)

This is session 2 of Course 2: Electrophysiology Lab and Electrophysiology Arrhythmias, and is part of a full curriculum that is a first line of education for allied professionals in electrophysiology.  A curriculum outline is listed below.

Full Curriculum Overview

This educational curriculum is designed for the allied health professional seeking to access new education or supplement prior learning in the field of electrophysiology and arrhythmia management. The course consists of 44 individual presentations covering a broad variety of topics including patient management, electrophysiology procedures and arrhythmia diagnosis/treatment. The presentations include selected video productions acquired from the Allied Health Professional Heart Rhythm Society 2014 Scientific Sessions and newly developed content presented as narrated power point production. The content of this course will be revised, updated and expanded to keep pace with new developments in the field of electrophysiology and necessary improvements in course materials.
