Contents of the Talk

Cardiovascular Disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Amongst the most common hospitalization reasons are cardiac dysrhythmias, such as ventricular and atrial tachycardias. Current monitoring methods include electrocardiograms, biomarkers, and various imaging modalities. However, challenges arise with conventional methods.

The focus of my talk will be concerning current standards in detecting and treating arrythmias. In addition to limitations and pitfalls, I will explore advancements in the rhythmology field. Finally, we will discuss disease burden in cardiology, as it is a rising concern, and which interdisciplinary approach should be taken.


Short CV

Christy Meledeth received her medical doctor degree in 2021 from the Karl Landsteiner Private University, Krems.
