Dr. Love, Professor of Clinical Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, Ohio State University Medical Center and Director, Arrhythmia Device Services and Associate Investigator, Dorothy M.

"This CME program will provide participants with valuable information on a timely and important topic in the medical device and broader healthcare community," said Bill Edelman, CEO of TYRX, Inc.

This webcast will provide electrophysiologists and cardiac surgeons with valuable tools to help protect their patients, reduce implant infections and save unnecessary hospital costs. We are honored to provide a grant that enables Drs. Darouiche and Love, two of the most renowned experts in their fields, to address the topic of surgical site infection prevention."

Participants will be provided with access instructions via email prior to the live presentation. A score of 70 percent or above will comprise a passing grade.
