In addition to being the world's first ICDs, CRT-Ds and CRT-Ps approved for MR scans, BIOTRONIK's new Lumax 740 and Evia HF-T devices also offer unique therapy options such as BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring®. Studies demonstrate that BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring® enables the early detection of atrial fibrillation and significantly reduces hospitalizations (COMPAS(1)) as well as unnecessary and inappropriate shocks (ECOST(2)).
BIOTRONIK's Education Programs at the HRS Congress
BIOTRONIK is committed to supporting exceptional, world-class education programs for physicians who are actively shaping the future of cardiovascular medicine. At Heart Rhythm 2012, BIOTRONIK is engaged in supporting the EPIC Alliance Meeting and the Max Schaldach Research Fellowship in Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology.
The Max Schaldach Fellowship in Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology
The Max Schaldach Fellowship in Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology is a $50,000 postdoctoral Heart Rhythm Society Research Fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology that will be awarded at the congress on Friday, May 11. The goal of the full-year postdoctoral award is to assist awardees in initiating world-class research. The award is presented in the name of Professor Max Schaldach, the inventor of the first German pacemaker and founder of BIOTRONIK, to support the research training of individuals in either basic or clinical electrophysiology.
The EPIC Alliance (Electrophysiologist International Community Alliance) supports female physicians and researchers working in the field of electrophysiology and is holding one of its international meetings at the Heart Rhythm Society congress.
Professor Jeanne E. Poole, a member of the EPIC Steering Committee from the University of Washington (USA), will chair the session which is designed to address topics aimed at informing and supporting women electrophysiologists.
"We invited women EPs and fellows-in-training to join our annual meeting during Heart Rhythm 2012 in Boston, MA.," says Jeanne E. Poole, Professor of Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, WA and EPIC Alliance Steering Committee member. "Women electrophysiologists who are interested in mentoring and collaborating for the purposes of career development and research opportunities are encouraged to become involved with the EPIC Alliance."
