The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) seeks to recognize and promote excellence in the field of cardiac pacing and electrophysiology. HRS offers a variety of awards and scholarships for heart rhythm professionals at every stage of their careers, from fellow-in-training to seasoned professional.

February 1, 2015 - The Heart Rhythm Society convened a forum of stakeholders in medical device innovation in conjunction with the 2015 Heart Rhythm Society Annual Scientific Sessions. The forum facilitated open discussion on medical device innovation, including obstacles to physician involvement and possible solutions. This report is based on the themes that emerged.

The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) released a first-of-its-kind consensus statement in the United States on indications of patients who undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and radiation exposure with cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). The expert writing group presented the recommendations included in the 2017 HRS Expert Consensus Statement on Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Radiation Exposure in Patients with Cardiovascular Implantable Electronic Devices today at Heart Rhythm 2017, the Heart Rhythm Society’s 38th Annual Scientific Sessions.  

Today, the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) in joint partnership with the European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), European Cardiac Arrhythmia Society (ECAS), Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society (APHRS), and Sociedad Latinoamericana de Estimulación Cardíaca y Electrofisiología (SOLAECE) issued an international consensus statement that provides a state-of-the-art review of the indications, techniques, and outcomes of catheter and surgical ablation of atrial fibrillation (AF). The 2017 HRS/EHRA/ECAS/APHRS/SOLAECE Expert Consensus Statement on Catheter and Surgical Ablation of Atrial Fibrillation, first issued in 2007, and again in 2012, represents a state-of-the art review of the field of catheter and surgical ablation of AF. This document is a complete and comprehensive revision of the 2012 statement and was presented today at Heart Rhythm 2017, the Heart Rhythm Society’s 38th Annual Scientific Sessions.  

Today, Heart Rhythm 2017, the Heart Rhythm Society’s (HRS) 38th Annual Scientific Sessions, kicks off at McCormick Place in Chicago where leading clinicians, scientists, researchers, educators and innovators from around the world present and discuss groundbreaking research for the care of cardiac arrhythmias. The theme of this year’s meeting is “Together We Can” to reinforce the importance of global collaboration to propel the field of electrophysiology (EP) forward.
