Asia Pacific Online Symposium on Cardiac Rhythm Management: Innovations in ICD & CRT-D Technology For Improved Patient Outcomes
Please join us at 16:00 Delhi / 18:30 Singapore / 19:30 Tokyo / 20:30 Sydney for our next Asia Pacific Online Symposium on Cardiac Rhythm Management focused on how innovations in ICDs and CRT-Ds are leading to improved patient outcomes.
Part one of the webinar will look at the growing adoption of remote monitoring for patients (particularly app-based monitoring) and how it is reshaping the management of patients with heart rhythm disorders. The second half of the program will cover device therapy advancements including how SyncAV™ Plus CRT technology can improve hemodynamic function and lead to better patient outcomes as well as enhanced algorithms for detecting and treating challenging life-threatening arrhythmias. We’ll also hear from our expert panel from different regions as they share and discuss the impact these enhancements have on enabling a higher quality of life for patients.
