Webinar: Rhythm monitoring: new technologies, new strategies - a Horizon 2020 AFFECT-EU


This is a joint webinar AFFECT-EU and EHRA.

Due to demographic changes, we are facing an arrhythmia epidemic projected to double by 2050. AF is often asymptomatic, with its first manifestation being a debilitating stroke in 11.5% of patients. Arrhythmia produces high healthcare costs for European society, precluding healthy ageing, and its detection may be challenging. Since population-based systematic screening may not work across healthcare systems, enrichment techniques like biomarkers, imaging, and artificial intelligence-based ECG interpretation may be applied.

There is a surge of new devices/wearables, some producing an ECG and others only detecting arrhythmias. However, information on their validity and experience in practical use is limited. In order to establish a link to care pathways in the virtual world, all these issues – including gaps in knowledge – related to new rhythm-monitoring technologies and novel strategies will be discussed at our webinar based on current evidence and guideline recommendations.
