The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), American College of Cardiology (ACC) and American Heart Association (AHA) released Expert Consensus Statement on the Use of Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator Therapy in Patients Who Are Not Included or Not Well Represented in Clinical Trials today at Heart Rhythm 2014, the Heart Rhythm Society’s 35th Annual Scientific Sessions. The expert consensus statement provides first-of-its-kind guidance on ICD therapy for the management of patient populations who are not well represented in clinical trials and, as a result, not specifically included in existing guidelines.

A study presented today at Heart Rhythm 2014, the Heart Rhythm Society’s 35th Annual Scientific Sessions, reports significant gender and health insurance disparities in implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) procedures. For the first time in nearly a decade, the new analysis of ICD implants in the United States shows a majority of implants are performed on people with insurance and more commonly in the male population.
This meeting will cover the broad spectrum of endeavors in the field of arrhythmia and device management
Today, Heart Rhythm 2014, the Heart Rhythm Society’s (HRS) 35th Annual Scientific Sessions and this year’s premier conference on cardiac arrhythmias begins at the Moscone Center. Heart Rhythm 2014 takes a profound look into the advancement of medical technology while once again creating a global exchange of ideas and best practices in order to promote optimal patient care worldwide.
A new study has found that adding an electrocardiogram (ECG) to existing pre-participation screening of high school athletes increases the likelihood of identifying disorders associated with sudden cardiac death. By using modern interpretation criteria, screenings resulted in fewer false-positive rates, which leads to more accurate detection. The new findings were presented today at Heart Rhythm 2014, the Heart Rhythm Society’s 35th Annual Scientific Sessions.
New research has found that bariatric surgery is an effective way to control weight in morbidly obese patients who are at risk for developing atrial fibrillation (AF). Bariatric or weight loss surgery is an operation on the stomach that limits food intake and is typically recommended for patients who are unable to lose weight on their own through diet and exercise. The first study of its kind to look at the relationship between AF and bariatric surgery on a large patient population was presented today at Heart Rhythm 2014, the Heart Rhythm Society’s 35th Annual Scientific Sessions. View the full study.
A first of its kind randomized trial has found that defibrillator testing (DT) at the time of implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) implantation is safe, but does not improve clinical shock efficacy or prevent death. The findings are part of the Shockless Implant Evaluation (SIMPLE) trial, which was designed to answer whether or not routine DT at time of implant actually improves patient outcomes. The results were released today at Heart Rhythm 2014, the Heart Rhythm Society’s 35th Annual Scientific Sessions.
This meeting will be dedicated to pediatric arrhythmia management and focus on ventricular arrhythmias in children.
