Description

Today on MedNet21, we're going to discuss Device Therapies for Heart Failure.   

We will review heart failure staging algorithm and discuss the role of device-based therapies in the treatment of each stage of symptomatic heart failure including Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICDs). We will also discuss the emerging indication of a newer defibrillation strategies (wearable ICD and subcutaneous ICD) and highlight the recent expansion of Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) to include patients with mild symptoms.

Objectives

As a result of this educational activity, webcast participants will be able to: DESCRIBE the primary
prevention strategies of the  prevention of sudden cardiac death in chronic systolic heart failure and the role of Cardiac Resynchronization therapy (CRT); and UNDERSTAND indications of the new
defibrillation strategies (wearable ICD and subcutaneous ICD) in the prevention of sudden cardiac death.

You’ll also learn about the following:

  • Medications versus implantable cardiac defibrillators
  • Implantable cardiac monitoring devices
