‘Beyond the Basics’ has been expanded to a 3-day program, with the addition of current practice guidelines, anatomy and dissection lab, enhanced fluoroscopy/cine instruction, and more time for electrogram review. In addition, there are case studies which include more discussion of electroanatomical mapping. Content on arrhythmogenesis, treatment modalities, and supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias has been updated. The recommended audience for this course is those with at least 6 months of electrophysiology lab, office, or industry experience.

Identify sinus rhythm, atrial pacing and extrastimulus testing, and ventricular pacing and extrastimulus testing in an electrophysiologic study.

List the steps included in analysis of an electrogram.

Label the anatomical features of a dissected heart.

Correlate fluoroscopic and electroanatomical mapping findings to the anatomy of the heart.

Discuss rationale for arrhythmia treatment with drugs, ablation, and devices.

List findings which lead to the diagnosis of supraventricular rhythms during the EP study.

Discuss techniques used during EP testing for supraventricular rhythm studies.

Discuss treatment aspects in the management of atrial fibrillation.
