GENERAL INFORMATION
The 6th Annual International Hawaii Symposium on Diagnostic and Therapeutic Modalities in Heart Failure will be held from December 1-3, 2016 at the delightful Mauna Lani Hotel on the beautiful Island of Hawaii. This year’s Symposium will detail exciting advances in heart failure prevention and treatment including use of biomarkers, drug therapy using both new and emerging agents, interventional strategies and devices for treating various aspects of the heart failure syndrome. During the 2.5 days, lectures, case presentations and panel discussions will cover a topics ranging from prevention, integrating current treatments for heart failure at its various stages and management of arrhythmias in this patient population. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear leaders in heart failure, electrophysiology and biomarkers discuss the newest important advances in their fields as well as provide practical guidance for optimizing patient care.


SYMPOSIUM OBJECTIVES
At the end of the meeting the participant will be better able to:

1.   Implement effective therapy for treating patients with heart failure including the
       use of pharmacologic agents and devices.
2.   Recognize new FDA approved drugs for treating heart failure.
3.   Identify patients who would be candidates for new anticoagulants for
       treating atrial fibrillation and other CV diseases.
4.   Define patients who might benefit from the use of left atrial appendage
       closure devices.
5.   Assess and follow patients with heart failure using devices for remote
       monitoring and with biomarkers.
6.   Identify and modify risk in patients with atrial fibrillation.
7.   Evaluate and manage patients with pulmonary hypertension.
8.   Define indications for percutaneous mitral repair.
9.   Identify patients who are candidates for ICDs (both external and internal) and
       BiV pacemakers.
10. Explore novel “biomarkers” such as heart rate, pulmonary pressure,
       serum potassium, apnea/hypopnea index, and how this will lead to new and
       effective targeted therapies.
11. Identify patients who might benefit from new agents available to treat
       hypercholesterolemia and new therapies for diabetes.
