Identifying The Risk – Sudden Cardiac Death and The Post-AMI Patient
Friday, May 10, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
This lunch symposium will focus on the risk of Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) in patients who have recently experienced AMI. Patients with ejection fractions (EF) ≤35% have proven high risk of SCD but, because of medical criteria and reimbursement considerations, are not candidates for an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) until at least 40 days post-MI and 90 days after a revascularization procedure.
Lunch will be served.
