VIDEO: Key Trends in Electrophysiology — Apple Watch to Detect AF and the CABANA Trial

Christine Albert, M.D., MPH, director of the Center for Arrhythmia Prevention at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, spoke at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2019 meeting, and also with ITN/DAIC Contributing Editor Greg Freiherr. In her interview, she focused on two key electrophysiology trends with the use of the Apple Watch to detect atrial fibrillation (AF) and the results of the CABANA Trial, which showed ablation is as effective as drug therapy in treating AF, with a significant reduction in death or cardiovascular hospitalization.
