What you should know about this year's workshop
We are looking forward to yet another year of outstanding sessions focused specifically on EP Allied Professionals. These sessions are not for researchers or physicians, but for you, the EP Allied Professional. This is your chance, in a single weekend, to learn from leading professionals and practicing cardiac electrophysiologists, to interact and share knowledge and experiences with your peers across the eastern US, and to get your questions answered by exhibitors from all the major EP suppliers. And if you also enjoy the seashore and Myrtle Beach, that's OK with us.
This is SASEAP's 25th annual workshop, and we are honored again to have a faculty with some of the best physicians, nurses, and technicians available worldwide. Here are some take-aways for the conference.
- New to EP
- Describe cardiac anatomy, identify origins of rhythms and trace electrical pathways through the heart by participating in a hands-on cardiac anatomy laboratory.
- Discuss protocols for and basic measurements made in an EP Study.
- Participate in peer discussions of progressive pathway responsibilities for EP professionals
- Interested in Certification
- Learn why certification is important and often required. Discuss topics and types of questions covered on the RCES exam and identify materials used in preparation for the exam.
- Clinic Settting
- Review topics important to EP patients in a clinical setting: DFT testing, remote monitoring, device optimization, and others.
- Learn from the experience of others with clinical case studies.
- All Attendees
- Interact with colleagues on effective lab and clinic management and how to resolve patient and EP staff problems both during the weekend and in small, interactive round table discussions on your choice of topics.
- Review the differences between Sub-Q vs transvenous ICDs from the perspective of an advanced EP nurse.
- Describe properties of surface ECGs, identify normal vs abnormal intracardiac tracings, and discuss pacing protocols and outcomes.
- Test your EP knowledge in an interactive, "Jeopardy"-like session.
- Explore the relevant practical differences between radio-frequency and cryogenic ablation catheters with an EP nurse practitioner.
- Review the current status of cardiac pharmacology and peri-procedural management of anticoagulants.
- Receive practical updates on new EP technologies and procedures from practicing cardiac electrophysiologists.
- Learn practical information about recent pacing techniques, like pacing in the bundle of His.
- Review the implications and treatments of EP patients with structural heart disease and TAVR.
- Gain practical knowledge that will better prepare you to assist or perform in clinical and EP lab situations.
