To Ablate Or Not To Ablate: Current Management of Atrial Fibrillation

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 CME Webcast Discusses To Ablate Or Not To Ablate Current Management of Atrial Fibrillation. In 1998, Dr. Michel Hice-uh-gaire, a cardiologist in Bordeaux, France, determined that the electrical triggers for atrial fibrillation were most commonly located in the pulmonary veins and that he could cure atrial fibrillation by ablating these triggers with a catheter. In the 2 decades since, ablation has a key element in the cardiologist’s toolbox to treat atrial fibrillation. But which patients are best served by medical treatment and which ones are best treated with catheter ablation? On this CME webcast, we’re going to explore this question. Joining our moderator is cardiac electrophysiologist and Professor of Internal Medicine at the Ohio State University, Dr. John Hummel.

Learn About Office EKG Interpretation on CME Webcast

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Learn About Office EKG Interpretation on CME Webcast. The EKG allows us to hear the voice of the heart. It can tell us when the heart is out of normal rhythm and when the heart is stressed by a myocardial infarction. It can also give us warning about heart problems before they occur. On this CME webcast, we’re going to cover some of the common EKG patterns that you are likely to encounter in patients you see in your office. Let me welcome my guest, cardiologist and Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, Dr. Jason Evanchan.
