WORLD-CLASS CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIA MANAGEMENT
CONFRONTING THE BURDEN OF CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS
The global burden of cardiac arrhythmias is staggering. Patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) face an increased risk for stroke, dementia, heart failure and death,1 and the number of patients with AF in the United States is expected to increase at least 2.5 fold by 2050.2 Ventricular tachycardia (VT) and ventricular fibrillation (VF) are even more serious. VT and VF remain the most significant causes of sudden cardiac death in America,3 at an estimated rate of 300,000 deaths per year.4
