The 4th Annual International Hawaii Symposium on Diagnostic and Therapeutic
Modalities in Heart Failure will be held from December 4-6, 2014 at the
delightful Mauna Lani Hotel on the beautiful Island of Hawaii. This year’s
Symposium will detail exciting advances in heart failure, biomarkers,
interventional therapy, and arrhythmias. The agenda for 2014 incorporates
lectures, panel discussions and case presentations presented in an environment
that is ideally suited for both learning and relaxation. Attendees will
have the opportunity to hear leaders in heart failure and biomarkers discuss
the newest important advances in their fields as well as provide practical
guidance for optimizing patient care.
The outstanding faculty includes experts in the field including Drs. Eric
Adler, Ulrika Birgersdotter-Green, Daniel Blanchard, Gregg Fonarow, Barry
Greenberg, Carl Lavie, Alan Maisel and Sara Paul and Michelle Schlueter.
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. Identify patients who would be candidates for new anticoagulants for
treating atrial fibrillation and other CV diseases.
3. Evaluate and manage patients with acute heart failure.
4. Assess and follow patients with heart failure using devices for remote
monitoring and with biomarkers.
5. Implement strategies for reducing re-admission after a heart failure
6. Identify and modify risk in patients with atrial fibrillation.
7. Evaluate and manage patients with pulmonary hypertension.
8. Define indications for valve replacement surgery and to determine which
patients are candidates for catheter based techniques for aortic valve
9. Identify patients who are candidates for ICDs (both external and internal)
and BiV pacemakers.
