The International Winter Arrhythmia School is one of the foremost electrophysiology (EP) events in Canada, designed for cardiologists, electrophysiologists, trainees, fellows, EP technicians, and nurses. It has been designed to provide a broad introductory base to cardiac electrophysiology, as well as a range of advanced topics. The program is divided into two streams: a devices stream and an electrophysiology stream comprising of lectures on complex ablations, cardiac arrhythmias, pathophysiology, imaging, and pharmacology delivered by top experts in the field.
This year there will be a special focus on robotics in cardiac electrophysiology, advanced mapping and ablation techniques, catheter navigation, anticoagulation and special circumstances in devices and implants for cardiac arrhythmia. The role of robotics in cardiac electrophysiology has expanded significantly.
Schulich Heart Center is one of the leading centers utilizing robotics to treat patients with different arrhythmia substrates. This has resulted in many publications related to the role of robotics in cardiac arrhythmia ablation. During the upcoming meeting, the leading users of robotics systems in the U.S. and Europe will convene to discuss existent challenges and future development of robotics in catheter ablation of supraventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.
In addition, various workshops and courses will be hosted throughout the conference. These include the Telemetry Workshop about the indications and pitfalls of electrocardiographic monitoring and the ECG Workshop on how to differentiate supraventricular tachycardias. These workshops are designed especially for nurses, EP technicians, and allied professionals.
This event is an accredited group learning activity under Section 1 as defined by the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons of Canada for the Maintenance of Certification program. This program is approved by the Canadian Cardiovascular Society for a maximum of 18 credits (RCPSC: MOC Section 1, AMA Category 1).
