The second annual “ExPlore 2018: Innovations in Electrophysiology for the Allied Professional” is jointly provided by Charlotte AHEC, Atrium Health, CaroMont Health, and Novant Health with the goal to bring professionals together to discuss emerging technologies and treatment strategies for Electrophysiology (EP) and heart failure patient populations.
General sessions in the morning will cover topics such as atrial fibrillation ablation, ventricular tachyarrhythmias, and pacing options. Afternoon breakout sessions will allow those working with EP devices and those providing care to EP patients to choose the sessions best suited for their educational needs.
