Overview

Please join us at 18:30 Singapore/19:30 Tokyo/20:30 Sydney for our upcoming Asia Pacific Online Symposium on Cardiac Rhythm Management focused on how recent enhancements in Insertable Cardiac Monitors and connectivity are improving the detection and diagnosis of suspected arrhythmias and leading to better patient care. As ICM technology continues to evolve, constant improvements are being made to detection algorithms, diagnostic features, and connectivity, as well as simplifying data management. We’ll hear from Dr. John Ip (US) as he shares insights from his recently published clinical trial on arrhythmia detection with ICMs and Dr. Hiro Yamasaki (Japan) who will share his experience with ICMs and data management. Our expert panel will discuss the impact these advancements have on enabling a faster and more accurate diagnosis for patients.
