Managing Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Patients and Their AF Burden
Description
HCM is a chronic, progressive disease with diverse clinical presentation. HCM remains underrecognized and often goes undiagnosed. Patients with HCM are at enhanced risk of arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation (AF), stroke, and rare but devastating sudden cardiac death. Specifically, AF can occur in up to 33% of patients with HCM, a marked increase compared to the general population. AF is also a chronic condition inflicting more than 2.7 million adults in the U.S. alone. Symptomatic AF results in reduced quality of life and increased burden. Patients with AF are at increased risk of stroke and exhibit higher mortality rates than patients without AF. This webinar is to support clinicians in the patient management of HCM and their elevated risk for arrhythmias, including AF.
Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activty participants will be able to;
  1. Recognize latest evidence on the treatment of HCM.
  2. Understand the prevalence of AF burden in HCM patients.
  3. Apply best practices on how to manage the treatment of HCM patients
Target Audience
This activity is designed for all professionals who participate in the care and management of heart rhythm disorders.
