AdaptivCRT™ Algorithm for Chamber and Timing Optimisation in CRT Devices: What Is the Effect in a Real-World Population?
In this webinar, experts in Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy (CRT) will show how the AdaptivCRT™ algorithm improves the hemodynamic function of the heart and leads to better patient outcomes. Dr Ulrike Neuhold (Krems, AT) will present the echocardiographic impact of left ventricular only pacing, synchronised with spontaneous right ventricular conduction using AdaptivCRT; Dr Maurizio Lunati (Milan, IT) will show the latest clinical evidence in a real-world population and Prof Carina Blomström-Lundqvist (Uppsala, SE) will moderate the session.

Key Learning Objectives
- The issue of non-response to CRT and how this can be addressed using device algorithms.
- The benefits of pacing only the left ventricle synchronised with spontaneous right ventricular conduction in CRT patients.
- The latest clinical results of AdaptivCRT™ in a real-world population.
- Cardiologists/electrophysiologists and HF specialists involved in the implantation and/or follow-up of cardiac resynchronisation therapy devices.
- Allied healthcare professionals such as physiologists, hospital technicians or nurses involved in cardiac resynchronisation therapy devices.
Dr Maurizio Lunati is Director of Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology and Cardiac Pacing Unit and Chairman of the Department of Cardiology/Cardiac-Thoracic-Vascular Surgery "A. De Gasperis", Niguarda Hospital, Milan, Italy.
Dr Lunati is lecturer at Milan-Bicocca University and Varese-Insubria University. He is the past Director of the Cardiac Pacing Course of the Educational Committee of the EHRA (European Heart Rhythm Association), branch of the ESC (European Society of Cardiology).
Dr Ulrike Neuhold is working as a Cardiologist in the University Hospital Krems, Austria and in her work, she focuses on electrophysiology, echocardiography, interventional cardiology and the implantation of devices. She is providing echocardiography courses in Austria: echo is an important consideration in the indication for CRT and after CRT implantation, she always checks whether the dyssynchrony has disappeared.
Dr Carina Blomström-Lundqvist is Professor of Cardiology at the Department of Cardiology, Institution of Medical Science, Uppsala, SE and Senior Consultant and Professor at the Department of Cardiology and Medical Science, Örebro University Hospital, Örebro, SE.
Dr Blomström-Lundqvist graduated in medicine in 1976, she went on to specialise in cardiology and internal medicine, and started research on haemodynamics and myocardial metabolism in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy. With the developments in electrophysiology she switched her research interest towards arrhythmias and after 3 years she defended her PhD thesis on the diagnostic and prognostic implications of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia in 1987 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
At Uppsala, Dr Blomström-Lundqvist has become research leader for the arrhythmia unit, mainly focusing on research related to atrial fibrillation (AF). In collaboration with the Department of Thoracic Surgery, procedures for Maze surgery followed by thoracoscopy epicardial atrial fibrillation ablations were initiated.
Dr Blomström-Lundqvist has also served as scientific secretary to the Swedish Society of Medicine and is presently chair of the Heart Rhythm Group of the Swedish Society of Cardiology. She is presently coordinating the Arrhythmia section of ESC Congress Programme Committee and the Councillor of the ESC Board.
Dr Blomström-Lundqvist is a member of the AER editorial board.
