One of the world’s largest gatherings of Cardiac Electrophysiologists
To Restore Heart Rhythms, Delhi Hosts Electrophysiologists
New Delhi, October 28: Human body also has a grid system to supply electricity to keep heart to beat in rhythm. When this rhythm goes awry the heart can start beating too fast, too slow, or with an irregular rhythm. This condition is called arrhythmia. It happens when there is something amiss in the grid system. Electrophysiologists of Asis Pacific will pore over for four days on this problem and best solutions available starting from tomorrow.
During an arrhythmia, the heart may not be able to pump enough blood to the body. Lack of blood flow can damage the brain, heart, and other organs. The APHRS Scientific Session, one of the world’s largest gatherings of Cardiac Electrophysiologists is being held in India for the first time ever. In its seventh edition, the annual conference organized by the Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society will take place in conjunction with the Indian Heart Rhythm Society simultaneously in Hotel Taj Palace and Maurya in New Delhi from 29th October to 1st November, 2014.
The primary objective of the conference is to provide a platform to physicians, researchers and other partakers involved in the fields of arrhythmia and electro cardiology from across the world to come together and contribute in enhancing international academic exchange and development in this field under one roof. The highlight of this year’s conference will be the 200 scientific sessions being conducted by 250 core leading National and International faculty on topics such as ECGs, Sudden Cardiac Death, Atrial Fibrillation, Heart Failure, latest technological advancements in Cardiology amongst others.
Speaking on the upcoming conference, Dr Mohan Nair, Chairman Organizing Committee, 7th Asia APHRS Scientific Session and Chairman Cardiology, Saket City Hospital said, “I am delighted to announce that the 7th APHRS Scientific Session, one of the most prestigious and largest gatherings of Cardiac Electrophysiologists in the world is going to take place in the National Capital this year. A global conclave aimed at upholding excellence and advancement in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with heart rhythm disorders, the APHRS Scientific Session 2014 will be attended by nearly 1500 leading physicians, cardiologists and medical students this year. I thank all our partners and look forward to getting more such opportunities to India in the future.”
Dr Young-Hoon Kim, President APHRS said, ‘Started in 2008, APHRS takes place every year in different countries of the Asia Pacific Region. The reason behind scheduling these conferences in different countries is to provide an exchange of information related to not only arrhythmia and electro cardiology but also to put forward an apt platform for the exposure to the local culture which is rewardingly educational and deeply enriching. I am extremely excited about attending this conference in India amongst some of the leading global experts in the field’.
In the past APHRS has been organized in countries such as Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Korea, Japan, and Taiwan. Next year’s conference will take place in Melbourne, Australia during the month of November 2015.
