Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute (TCAI) at St. David's Medical Center hosted its fourth international symposium on complex arrhythmias, EPLive 2018, earlier this year. Nearly 200 leaders in the field of electrophysiology came from across the globe to participate in the two-day educational conference.

EPLive 2018 featured a variety of new technology, including the Confirm Rx™ Insertable Cardiac Monitor (ICM)—the world’s first and only smartphone-compatible monitor designed to help doctors identify cardiac arrhythmias.

"EPLive brings the world’s top cardiac electrophysiology physicians and researchers together to share the latest advances in the field, as well as the tools and technology required to treat patients with heart rhythm disorders," Dr. Andrea Natale, cardiac electrophysiologist and executive medical director of TCAI, said.

EPLive 2018 used live and recorded cases with expert commentary as the primary teaching tool, broadcast from some of the world's premier treatment centers. The conference also featured demonstrations by a number of TCAI physicians.
