Device Options for Heart Failure – Finding the Fit. CCM®, CRT or BAT?

This webinar will provide an update on device therapy options for patients with heart failure. While HF patients are treated aggressively with GDMT, many remain symptomatic and struggle with everyday activities. Program faculty will discuss the indications for Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT), Cardiac Contractility Modulation (CCM®), and Baroreceptor Activation Therapy (BAT) as potential options for patients and management of their heart failure symptoms. The session will also include time for Q & A to discuss patient selection and screening to optimize getting patients the therapy best suited for their individual needs.
