- Identify the distinguishing features of each arrhythmia caused by a cardiac channelopathy using the five-steps of rhythm interpretation as well as additional analysis of the ECG.
- Discuss the genetic factors, trigger events, etiology and diagnosis of each arrhythmia caused by a cardiac channelopathy.
- Summarize the clinical manifestations of each arrhythmia caused by a cardiac channelopathy.
- Identify treatment options available for the arrhythmias caused by a cardiac channelopathy.
