Many common arrhythmias are associated with significant mortality and morbidity. Echocardiography can play a critical role in identification of arrhythmias that are both basic and complex. This presentation will describe and analyze basic and advanced arrhythmias encountered during the echocardiographic exam and familiarize attendees with the steps needed to arrive at clinical interpretation. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit)
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
List the diseases related to cardiac arrhythmias
Describe the echocardiographic findings that are associated with arrhythmias
Demonstrate how to interpret basic and complex arrhythmias
