Prior to this, he served as a Military Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Army for eight years, handling leadership, strategic planning, and operations, which honed his skills in managing complex training in dynamic environments.
"Every device clinic is unique, operating under different protocols and patient needs. It's crucial for clinical teams to be proficient in fundamental concepts and specialized technical skills. Our device clinic webinar series is designed to bridge this gap, offering insights into technical principles and practical applications, all delivered by our experienced training team and IBHRE-certified clinical experts."
Explore the Topics
This 6-episode webinar series for cardiac device technicians,
nurses and clinic managers presents critical concepts,
case studies and best practices.
Best Practices for Conduction System Pacing Follow-Ups
Conduction system pacing offers an alternative to traditional RV pacing and can provide many benefits to your patients, but also comes with unique challenges. In this webinar we will be reviewing His Bundle and Left Bundle Branch pacing, including selective and non-selective capture, and how to troubleshoot high thresholds, oversensing, undersensing, and interactions with other algorithms.
ILR Management and Rhythm Interpretation
Implantable loop recorders are a great tool to help correlate patient symptoms with rhythm disturbances, as well as to monitor arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation. This webinar will discuss how to classify rhythms detected by ILRs and how to manage false positives.
PMT Interpretation and Management
PMT, or pacemaker mediated tachycardia, is a common phenomenon that can happen in dual chamber devices and lead to patient symptoms. This episode will cover what PMT is, how to stop it, and the different algorithms designed to prevent it from occurring.
VT vs SVT Episode Analysis
The primary purpose of an ICD is to appropriately treat and terminate life threatening arrythmias such as VT or VF. However, the device needs to be specific enough to inhibit therapy for SVTs with rapid ventricular conduction. In this webinar, we will discuss a systematic approach for analyzing ICD episodes, including how to differentiate VT from SVT.
LV Lead Troubleshooting
CRT, or cardiac resynchronization therapy, is a therapy that has the potential to significantly improve a patient’s quality of life, but it is not without challenges. We will discuss how to troubleshoot problems such as high LV thresholds, diaphragmatic stimulation, and non-response to CRT.
Interpretation of Heart Failure Diagnostics
Heart failure is a condition that impacts tens of millions of people worldwide. Heart failure patients can decompensate quickly, often requiring a costly and intensive stay in the hospital to recover. Some implantable devices can improve heart failure symptoms, but also can identify an impending heart failure decompensation. This webinar will discuss some of these algorithms and best practices for how to interpret the data.
