Authored and endorsed clinical documents provide three main components vital to advancements in the heart rhythm field: analysis, discussion of current issues, and suggestions for clinical application. Below are the documents HRS is currently working on (scheduled for publication in 2015):
HRS/EHRA/APHRS/SOLAECE Expert Consensus Statement on ICD Programming and Testing
