March 2007 — Part I - This statement examines the relation of the resting ECG to its technology. Its purpose is to foster understanding of how the modern ECG is derived and displayed and to establish standards that will improve the accuracy and usefulness of the ECG in practice.  Part II -This statement provides a concise list of diagnostic terms for ECG interpretation that can be shared by students, teachers, and readers of electrocardiography.

September 21, 2010 – This statement is the result of a collaborative effort with interventional cardiologists and electrophysiology members from the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS). The document outlines and recommends standards for medical practitioners to use when performing and broadcasting live cardiovascular case demonstrations at medical meetings.

September, 2002 — Summary Article from the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines (ACC/AHA/NASPE Committee on Pacemaker Implantation) (updating 1998 pacemaker guidelines).

This document has been retired and replaced by "ACC/AHA/HRS 2008 Guidelines for Device-Based Therapy of Cardiac Rhythm Abnormalities"  and subsequently by "2012 ACCF/AHA/HRS Focused Update Incorporated Into the ACCF/AHA/HRS 2008 Guidelines for Device-Based Therapy of Cardiac Rhythm Abnormalities."

February 2002 – This Statement gives the revised NBG code, endorsed by  British Pacing and Electrophysiology Group (BPEC) and the North American Society for Pacing and Electrophysiology (NASPE, now known as Heart Rhythm Society) in 2001. This statement is more compatible with contemporary and emerging pacing technology with particular attention to the issue of multisite pacing.

May 14, 2009 — This Consensus Statement provides a state-of-the-art review on catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT). It reports on the findings of a Task Force representing the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA) and the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) charged with defining the indications, techniques, and outcomes of this procedure.

April 2003 — This consensus statement provides a simple way to characterize an episode of Atrial Fibrillation. It is the result of a collaborative project of the Working Group on Arrhythmias and the Working Group of Cardiac Pacing of the European Society of Cardiology and the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology, now known as Heart Rhythm Society.

April 30, 2013 — The report expands upon guidelines published in 2005 and a supplemental consensus statement issued by the Pediatric and Congenital Electrophysiology Society (PACES) and the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) in 2008.  The report provides an overview of training, didactic curriculum and research experience, clinical experience, and credentialing/certification. 

February 2009 — This document is a consensus statement by the major American societies of physicians who work in a laboratory environment and reviews available data on the prevalence of occupational health risks and summarizes ongoing epidemiologic studies designed to further elucidate these risks.

May 13, 2015 - The current document is developed from the foundations established by the 2008 HRS Consensus Statement as well as the 2012 International Society for Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiography and European Heart Rhythm Association’s Expert Consensus Statement on Remote Monitoring of CIEDs.  The goals of follow-up, definition of hardware, and personnel remain the same and will not be covered in this document except where evolution of remote technologies and responsibilities has occurred. The current document provides new recommendations based on data published since 2008, endorsing the need to maintain consistent follow-up, and outlining the limitations of strictly in-person methods.
