Visit to Medtronic in San Francisco

Wednesday, 9/9/09, 6—8 PM

(Sorry, RSVPs are no longer being accepted.)

Join us for a visit to Medtronic’s office in San Francisco. This month, we will not meet on the second Saturday, as customary. Instead, we’re gathering on a Wednesday evening from 6 to 8 PM at Medtronic’s office in San Francisco.

ABOUT THE MEETING:

Medtronic has offered us privileged access to their Cath lab, where they train professionals and demonstrate products to physicians.

Medtronic will give us a short presentation covering a variety of advanced topics of interest, including a brief history of ICDs, leads and lead replacements, and a look into the future.

The presentation will be followed by a tour of their simulated implant lab. Clinical Specialists will be available to answer our questions, and refreshments will be served.

THE PROGRAM WILL FEATURE:

  • Educational Presentation by Medtronic
  • Virtual Cath Lab Experience
  • Refreshments
This will probably be one of our best meetings yet. Don’t miss it!
