Introduction to Cardiac Electrophysiology/course program

The program guides you through the key principles, equipment, pacing protocols, arrhythmia mechanisms and ablation techniques used and seen in the everyday EP lab. Intracardiac recordings will also be taught, endowing participants with the ability to understand and follow procedures in the EP lab, as well as explain these procedures to patients and relatives.

Cardiac anatomy and physiology

Principles of EP

Pacing protocols

Evaluation and treatment of AV Node Reentry Tachycardia (AVNRT)

Evaluation and treatment of AV Reentry Tachycardia (AVRT)

Evaluation and treatment of Atrial Tachycardia (AT)

Evaluation and treatment of Atrial Flutter (AFL)

Evaluation and treatment of Atrial Fibrillation (AF)

Evaluation and treatment of Ventricular Tachycardia (VT)

Atrial Flutter (AFL)

Concealed bypass tract (AVRT)

Pre-excitation syndrome (WPW)

AV Node Reentry Tachycardia (AVNRT)

RV Outflow Tract VT (RVOT VT)

Brugada Syndrome

Ventricular Tachycardia


X-ray orientation and catheter identification

Cardiac anatomical dissection

How to load and prime an EP catheter irrigation pump

EP catheter connector cables

EP catheters

EP catheter short sheaths

EP catheter long sheaths

Participants will also have full access to regular 30-40 minute scheduled live-streamed workshop sessions

The sessions will deliver case studies, tutorials or general Q & A

Participants will have the ability for live interaction and discussions

The sessions will be scheduled at various days and times to allow participants many options to attend 

The sessions are invaluable in allowing interaction with peers and to clarify unfamiliar or complex concepts

Upon enrolment participants will have uninterrupted 12 month access to all online education tools at including all lectures in full colour with audio, case studies, tutorials and live-streamed workshops

Participants will be able to demonstrate:

Improved knowledge of cardiac anatomy and physiology

Solid understanding of the role of EPS in managing patients with bradyarrhythmias and tachyarrhythmias

Enhanced knowledge of patient and lab set up and equipment used

Familiarity of catheter access and approaches, basic catheter locations and electrogram interpretation

Understanding of pacing protocols used during EPS

Appreciation of common arrhythmia aetiology, mechanisms and diagnostic features

Comprehension of arrhythmia mapping and ablation techniques and endpoints
