Sudden cardiac death in post-acute myocardial infarction patients - Who is at risk?

With an unrestricted educational grant from ZOLL

Learning Objectives

  • To discuss the risk of sudden cardiac death in the low ejection fraction, acute myocardial infarction patient undergoing PCI
  • To discuss the opportunity for these patients to experience left ventricular ejection fraction improvement without further need for implantable cardioverter defibrillator implantation
  • To discuss the role of interventional cardiologists to screen patients for sudden cardiac death risk and establishing an appropriate care path
