Complimentary: Get Back to Care Webinar Series

To give you vital information to avoid missing out on the care you need during the pandemic

If the pandemic has made you feel reluctant to venture out to see your doctors, you’re not alone. We’ve heard from many of you who say you’re not getting the care and treatment you need because you want to stay safely at home. Some of you have said that telemedicine has not been as easy as it should be, either.

The good news is, doctors and hospitals are doing everything possible to help you feel comfortable going to them to get care.

We want you to have the peace of mind to go to the doctor and get treatment if you need it, or to use telemedicine and remote monitoring tools to make sure you get the care you need.

That’s why we’ve created our new, complimentary Get Back to Care Webinar Series—to give you vital information to avoid missing out on the care you need during the pandemic. When you sign up, you’ll have access to the entire series.

Here’s the link where you can read in detail about the first two webinars, and sign up to receive access to all of them:

The two past webinars include:

What to Know About Heart Monitoring for Afib, featuring cardiac electrophysiologist Jonathan P. Piccini, MD, FHRS. Discover how tiny heart monitors inserted in the doctor’s office can monitor your heart and diagnose arrhythmias while you’re safely at home. Specifically, Dr. Piccini discussed different types of monitoring and monitors, how they work, and considerations for each one, as well as how data from these monitors is transmitted and evaluated (especially during COVID-19).

Dr. Piccini is a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist and Associate Professor of Medicine with Tenure at Duke University Medical Center and the Duke Clinical Research Institute. He is the Director of the Cardiac Electrophysiology section at the Duke Heart Center.

How to Know When to Have a Catheter Ablation, featuring cardiac electrophysiologist Dhanunjaya Lakkireddy, MD, FHRS. Discover what catheter ablation is, an overview of the different types, and who might be a candidate (this has changed dramatically over the past couple of years). Dr. Lakkireddy explains what patients can expect when it comes to catheter ablation, and how to know the right time (including feeling safe having a procedure during a pandemic, whether there’s a “window of opportunity” for having a successful one, and whether there is a risk from delaying ablation).

Dr. Lakkireddy is a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist and the Medical Director for the Kansas City Heart Rhythm Institute at HCA Midwest Health. He was a previous professor of medicine in the department of internal medicine at the University of Kansas Medical Center and a renowned leader in electrophysiology research and education.

We hope this webinar series will be a source of peace of mind for you—and that it will help you feel comfortable getting care during the pandemic.

You can sign up here to access all the webinars in the Get Back to Care Webinar Series:
