Why CRT Works, When CRT Works. How to Make CRT Work for Your HF Patient?

Jan 29, 2022 10:45am ‐ Jan 29, 2022 11:15am

Identification: D4

Learning Objectives:
  • The attendee should be able to explain the anatomic targets and physiologic mechanisms of remodeling associated with cardiac resynchronization therapy vs GDMT and recall current indications for CRT (D and P) to identify appropriate candidates in the HF clinic and refer to electrophysiology
  • The attendee should be able to identify expected indicators of optimal cardiac resynchronization therapy including: 12-lead EKG findings, patient symptoms and clinical presentation, and device interrogation data in order to achieve beneficial outcomes in HF patients
Speaker(s):
