Key Learning Objectives
- How digital health is changing cardiology and how to embrace it.
- How digital technology can help transform patient management in cardiology.
- An overview of the latest innovations in cardiac implantable cardiac devices, incorporating Bluetooth communication with smart devices, such as tablets and smartphones.
- Cardiologists/electrophysiologists and heart failure specialists involved in the implantation and/or follow-up of cardiac devices, such as implantable cardiac monitors, pacemakers, ICDs and cardiac resynchronization therapy devices.
- Allied healthcare professionals such as physiologists, hospital technicians or nurses involved in implantable cardiac device therapy.
Prof. Enrico Caiani is Associate Professor at the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering of the Polytechnic University of Milan, Italy. He is Past-Chair of the e-Cardiology working group and Vice Chair of the Digital Cardiology Board Committee of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). His main research interests include e-health solutions in cardiology, technology, cardiac image processing and space physiology.
Dr. Paul Roberts is a Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist in the University Hospital, Southampton, UK. He is an experienced Interventional Electrophysiologist with particular expertise in device implantation (pacemakers, ICDs and cardiac resynchronization devices) and catheter ablation.
