This activity is intended for electrophysiologists, interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, clinical cardiologists, cardiology nurses and nurse practitioners, and other allied healthcare professionals.

The goal of this activity is to reinforce the need for risk stratification of patients undergoing revascularization so as to determine the appropriate need for therapy to prevent sudden cardiac death.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Examine the mortality risk and risk for sudden cardiac arrest after coronary revascularization
  2. Evaluate measures to prevent sudden cardiac death in patients with compromised left ventricular ejection fraction after surgical and/or percutaneous revascularization
