Today, the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) released communication recommendations to assist health care professionals to understand and prepare for potential cybersecurity vulnerabilities of cardiovascular implantable electronic devices (CIEDs). The proceedings statement outlines four key communication themes: when to notify patients, whom to notify, how to communicate with patients, and what elements to discuss with patients. The statement will be presented on Thursday, May 10, at Heart Rhythm 2018, the Heart Rhythm Society’s 39th Annual Scientific Sessions.
Dr. Russo is Director of the Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia Services at Cooper University Hospital and Professor of Medicine in the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University. She has served on numerous HRS committees and task forces, including the Scientific Sessions Program Committee, and is a member of the HeartRhythm Journal editorial board.
Each year the Heart Rhythm Society identifies and recognizes outstanding contributions to the field and to the Society. Congratulations to the following distinguished individuals.
The Heart Rhythm Society provides opportunities for involvement from all categories of membership — links to the committee rosters are included here.
This annual symposium was created to provide the busy clinician, associated professional, and electrophysiologist with “state-of-the-art” information on arrhythmia diagnosis and management. It is presented in a format that permits each group the opportunity to focus on some of their specific issues and concerns as well as to review topics of common interest.
Current information on invasive and non-invasive electrocardiographic and electrophysiologic tools used in the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders will be presented. Attendees will develop an understanding of the best practice approaches to diagnosing and treating patients with atrial fibrillation, other atrial and ventricular arrhythmias, and risk factors for sudden death.
The Heart Rhythm Society, established in 1979 (originally named the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology, or NASPE) has been led by some of the most accomplished and distinguished cardiac pacing and electrophysiology professionals.
