2016 Electrophysiology Board Review

Content of this course is available for you to view whenever convenient for you. Credit must be claimed by August 24, 2018. 

This enduring material is a recording of the Mayo Electrophysiology Review Course for Boards and Recertification (August 13-15, 2016). This course will provide the cardiologist and electrophysiologist with an overview of all aspects of cardiovascular electrophysiology. Experts in each field will give in-depth didactics on all pertinent aspects of arrhythmia and device management. Although this material is designed specifically to prepare the heart rhythm specialist for the electrophysiology boards or recertification, it also aims to provide the clinician with an update on current best practices and advances in arrhythmia management. The full spectrum of electrophysiology will be reviewed: ranging from basic arrhythmia mechanisms and pharmacology, to catheter diagnosis and therapy, and device-based treatments. There are also dedicated cardiac anatomy sessions and careful review of the key maneuvers for arrhythmia diagnosis in the EP lab. 

Please note:  References made to things available on your portal or dashboard only pertain to live course attendees, and not all content presented at the live course is presented in the DVD format. This is a result in the change of credits offered. Please refer to the DVD breakdown in your uploaded materials for the content available to you. 

Upon completion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Apply 3-D mapping techniques to distinguish between reentrant vs. focal mechanisms of VT;
  • Develop evidence-based approaches for atrial fibrillation ablation;
  • Identify the EP characteristics of cardiac impulse propagation, including anisotropy, cable theory, and spiral/scroll conduction;
  • Select and appropriately utilize maneuvers to differentiate AVNRT from JT and ORT in the EP lab;
  • Recognize the indications for ILR, tilt-testing, and ambulatory monitoring in patients with syncope;
  • Distinguish the clinical principles and theory of defibrillation and cardic resynchronization;
  • Describe the molecular basis of the action potential of the human heart;
  • Recognize the pharmacokinetic properties of antiarrhythmic drugs, including use dependence;
  • Recognize and describe the basic mechanisms of common LQTS, Brugada, short-QT, and J-wave syndromes;
  • Formulate management approaches to the arrhythmia syndromes in congenital heart disease, sarcoid, and ARVD.

Mayo Clinic course does not indicate nor guarantee competence or proficiency in the performance of any procedures which may be discussed or taught in this course.

This course is intended for cardiologists, electrophysiologists, cardiovascular fellows, electrophysiology fellows, and all practitioners involved in the care of complex arrhythmia patients in the outpatient and laboratory settings.
