Learn About Cardiac Rhythm Wearable Monitoring Devices on Webcast

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Learn About Cardiac Rhythm Wearable Monitoring Devices on webcast. On this CME webcast, we’re going to update you on these devices. We’re pleased to introduce cardiologist and Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, Dr. Wesley Milks and cardiac electrophysiologist and Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, Dr. Muhammad Afzal.

What you’ll learn in this webcast

As a result of this educational activity, webcast participants will be able to: identify common consumer-targeted devices that are capable of ECG monitoring; discuss the potential utility of identifying atrial fibrillation via a patient’s use of a consumer-targeted and/or “wearable” device; decide about the best modality of monitoring for a particular patient; decide about anticoagulation in patients with device detected atrial fibrillation.

You’ll also learn about the following:

  • Choosing the duration of the Holter monitor
  • Arrythmias other than atrial fibrillation
  • Detection of QT prolongation by consumer devices
  • Myocardial infarction diagnosis

Experts Discuss Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation on Webcast

OSUWexnerbloglogo2014 Experts Discuss Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation on Webcast. In the 1980’s, cardiac rehab emerged as the standard of practice for most patients. Pulmonary rehabilitation was also found to be an effective treatment for patients with chronic lung disease. On this CME webcast, we are going to bring you up to date with the current concepts in both cardiac and pulmonary rehab. I’m pleased to welcome cardiologist and Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, Dr. Wesley Milks. And also, pulmonologist and Professor of Internal Medicine, Dr. Philip Diaz.
