Rhythm Interventions Online 2021 – Full Programme: On-Demand
Published: 06 December 2021
Building on the outstanding success of 2020’s inaugural event, Rhythm Interventions Online (RIO) 2021 again delivered the highest quality learning over three days.
With an interactive programme designed to reflect the very latest tips, tricks and technologies, the aim of RIO 2021 was, conversely, one of continuity: the continue to provide you, the healthcare practitioner, with stimulating virtual sessions to educate, challenge, and best support optimal outcomes in patient care. Central to RIO’s philosophy was for all sessions to again be free-to-access, providing a platform for the widest dissemination of live case procedures, expert opinions and best-in-class presentations and discussion.
Watch the full programme – including symposia and breakouts – on-demand here.
Radcliffe Cardiology will publish details on the next year's event – RIO 2022 – shortly.
Note, the live version of this session was CME accredited; this on-demand version is not.
Prof Schilling has been a consultant cardiologist at St Bartholomew’s and the Royal London NHS trust since 2001. He was appointed as chair in cardiology and electrophysiology in 2009. His current practice involves all aspects of electrophysiology and management of cardiac arrhythmia including catheter ablation, implantation of pacemakers and cardiac defibrillators, and cardiac resynchronization therapy for heart failure patients.
Prof Schilling was part of the team that lead the merger of the Heart and Barts hospitals which is one of the largest heart centers in Europe. He is the Strategy Director for Barts Hospital, the Medical Director for the Arrhythmia Alliance and President-Elect for the British Heart Rhythm Society.
Prof Schilling is a member of the AER editorial board.
Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology
Professor of Cardiology
Dr Carina Blomström-Lundqvist is Professor of Cardiology at the Department of Cardiology, Institution of Medical Science, Uppsala, Sweden.
Dr Blomström-Lundqvist graduated in medicine in 1976, she went on to specialize in cardiology and internal medicine, and started research on haemodynamics and myocardial metabolism in patients with dilated cardiomyopathy. With the developments in electrophysiology she switched her research interest towards arrhythmias and after 3 years she defended her PhD thesis on the diagnostic and prognostic implications of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia in 1987 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
At Uppsala, Dr Blomström-Lundqvist has become research leader for the arrhythmia unit, mainly focusing on research related to atrial fibrillation (AF). In collaboration with the Department of Thoracic Surgery, procedures for Maze surgery followed by thoracoscopy epicardial atrial fibrillation ablations were initiated.
KR Julian Chun
Dr Chun heads the electrophysiology section at CardioVascular Center Bethanien, Markus Krankenhaus in Frankfurt, Germany. He trained at the University of Lübeck and St Georg Hospital, Hamburg, Germany. He is a member of the Nucleus and Treasurer of the Arrhythmia Working Group at the German Cardiac Society. He is a faculty member at the University of Lübeck.
Dr Chun is a member of the Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Review editorial board.
Dr Mattias Duytschaever obtained his medical degree in 1995 from the University of Ghent and conducted research for his PhD into the role of atrial electrical remodeling in the management of atrial fibrillation , at the University of Maastricht, The Netherlands.
Dr Duytschaever completed his training in cardiology at the Academic Hospital Ghent, Belgium, from 2000 to 2002, and became Professor in Electrophysiology at the University of Ghent in 2003. Since 2006, he has been conducting diagnostic and interventional electrophysiology at the Department of Electrophysiology at St Jan Hospital Bruges, Belgium, still providing his services as Professor in Electrophysiology at the University of Ghent.
DM, Consultant Cardiologist
Professor Dhiraj Gupta is a consultant cardiologist at the Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital (LHCH), which is the largest specialist cardiothoracic centre in the United Kingdom. Prof Gupta is a very high-volume operator in interventional electrophysiology and Left Atrial Appendage Occluder (LAAO) work. He proctors cardiologists nationally and internationally for complex procedures.
Prof Gupta has served as the Chief Investigator for many multicentre international trials in the field of catheter ablation, and he has over a hundred scientific publications to his name. He has an honorary appointment with the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at the University of…
