March 18, 2018—This expert consensus statement, based on a thorough review of the medical literature regarding cognitive function in arrhythmias, is intended to describe the impact of different types of arrhythmias on cognitive function, to highlight possible risk markers for cognitive decline, and to formulate implications for clinical practice regarding follow-up methods, prevention, and treatment strategies. The objective is to raise awareness of cognitive function among physicians treating patients with arrhythmias and to provide them with practical proposals that may lead to improvement of patient care in this regard.
Clinical Guidelines & Documents
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.
In addition to the two recently released documents (2017 HRS Expert Consensus Statement on Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Radiation Exposure in Patients with Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Devices and 2017 HRS/EHRA/ECAS/APHRS/SOLAECE Expert Consensus Statement on Catheter and Surgical Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation) during the 2017 HRS Scientific Sessions, the Society released the 2017 HRS Expert Consensus Statement on Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Device Lead Management and Extraction in September 2017.
The Society also approved the scope for three new documents that are currently under development:
- HRS Expert Consensus Statement on Evaluation, Risk Stratification, and Management of Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathies
- HRS Expert Consensus Statement on Evaluation and Management of Arrhythmic Risk in Neuromuscular Disorders
- HRS Expert Consensus Statement on Catheter Ablation of Ventricular Arrhythmias
