This session consists of six presentations will provide the learner with an overview of the common supraventricular arrhythmias, the electrophysiologists approach to diagnosis in the EP lab and unique challenges in diagnosis.

  1. Observations and Maneuvers to Determine PSVT Mechanism
  2. AV Nodal Reentrant Tachycardia - Simple and Complex
  3. Accessory Pathway - Mediated Tachycardia
  4. Focal Atrial Tachycardia - ECG, Catheters, Mapping Systems
  5. Typical Atrial Flutter - Simple, Yet Challenging
  6. Atypical Atrial Flutter - Finding It, Fixing It

This is session 3 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.
