About this event

  • Date and time Thu 22 Apr 2021 from 9:00am to 1:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Cardiology

This webinar aims to provide an overview of the diagnosis and management of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), from an interventional cardiac electrophysiology perspective. This educational session is filled with content which will support the return of subspeciality electrophysiology trainees into the EP lab and develop their knowledge and skills. 

Topics include:

  • Differential diagnosis via ECG and electrophysiological testing
  • Mapping and ablation of common SVTs
  • Case-based discussions of interesting or unusual cases

The learning objectives will be: 

  • To learn about the electrocardiographic (ECG) characteristics of SVT 
  • To review differential diagnosis via ECG and electrophysiological testing  
  • To understand the biophysics and clinical application of ablation for SVT 
  • To be able to apply such knowledge in clinical cases, facilitated by case-based discussion  
  • To engage in educational communication between electrophysiology specialists/consultants and physiologists 

This webinar has free CPD accreditation. A CPD certificate with CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording. 

We would like to thank our sponsor Boston Scientific for their support of this webinar. Please note that the scientific programme and content has not been influenced in any way by the sponsor.

Key speakers

Dr Husain Shabeeh

Consultant Cardiac Electrophysiologist, Croydon Health Services NHS Trust and Kings College NHS Foundation Trust

Speaker's biography

Dr Shabeeh is a Consultant Cardiologist and Cardiac Electrophysiologist. He is time is split between Kings College Hospital and Croydon University Hospital, where is Clinical Lead for Cardiology. He trained in London including a PhD at Kings College London, and did his sub-specialist electrophysiology training at Royal Brompton & Harefield Hospitals

Mr Ross Haynes

Electrophysiology Service Manager, Lead Cardiac Physiologist for Electrophysiology, Harefield Hospital

Speaker's biography

Mr Haynes is the Lead Cardiac Physiologist for Electrophysiology at Harefield. He is interested in both complex devices and electrophysiology. He has worked within cardiac rhythm management (CRM) for over 10 years. He line managed a team of highly skilled Cardiac Physiologists. He is accredited in both devices (HRUK – now BHRS) and electrophysiology (IBHRE) with an MSc in Cardiology. He is currently undergoing an equivalence process which he hopes will lead to registration as a Clinical Scientist. His ambition is to pursue a clinical doctorate in the medium term.

Dr Michael Cooklin

Consultant Cardiologist, St Thomas’ Hospital 

Speaker's biography

Dr Cooklin was appointed consultant cardiac electrophysiologist at St Thomas’ Hospital in 2001 after training in London, Newcastle upon Tyne and in the USA. Areas of interest include inherited arrhythmia syndromes and the electrocardiography of arrhythmias.

Dr Claire Martin

Consultant Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist, Royal Papworth Hospital

Speaker's biography

Dr Martin is an Electrophysiologist with an Academic Interest at Royal Papworth Hospital. She undertook undergraduate and clinical training at Cambridge University (Gonville and Caius College). She then completed a PhD at the University of Cambridge funded by a Medical Research Council Training Fellowship, and for this was awarded the British Cardiovascular Society Young Research Workers’ Prize. After specialist training at Papworth Hospital, she undertook clinical fellowships at two world-leading cardiac centres: Barts Heart Centre and subsequently at the Hopital du Haut-Leveque, Bordeaux, through a European Society of Cardiology Training Grant. 

Dr Martin has research interests in the ablation of ventricular tachycardia complex atrial arrhythmias, including in those with congenital heart disease and pulmonary hypertension.
