This presentation will briefly outline the anatomy of the heart and how it works electrically speaking. The remainder of the presentation will be a case presentation of a patient, presenting symptoms, evaluations and tests to narrow down and finalize the diagnosis, then treatment options for the patient with various procedures being described and how they affect the heart overall, arrhythmias, dysrhythmias, and then specific procedures to include pacemaker implantation (which device and why), PTCA, ablations. The attendee will learn why different diagnoses require different treatments and which options are considered for the various diagnoses to test and treat heart irregularities in the most minimally invasive approach possible.
