HRS and ABC Joint Scientific Session

B014. – Management of Arrhythmias and Heart Failure in Populations Underrepresented in Clinical Trials








This session will highlight the latest clinical data and challenges in managing arrhythmias and heart failure in underrepresented populations, including women, racial/ethnic minorities, and patients with chronic kidney disease. We will provide attendees with an overview of our understanding of how the clinical consensus guidelines apply to these populations, and how current and emerging technology can help improve the diagnosis, treatment, and cardiovascular outcomes of these groups of patients.
