British Heart Rhythm Society (formerly known as Heart Rhythm UK) is dedicated to improving all aspects of arrhythmia care and electrical device based therapies along with acting as a unifying focus for those professionals involved.
The society was formed in 2005 by the amalgamation of the British Pacing and Electrophysiology Group (BPEG), the British Association of Arrhythmia Nurses (BANA) and the UK Interventional Electrophysiology Society (UKICES).
British Heart Rhythm Society has close working relationships with Arrhythmia Alliance representing patient groups, medical regulatory and advisory bodies (MHRA) and with colleagues in the medical equipment and device manufacturing industries (ABHI).
We also work closely with The British Cardiovascular Society which is the voice for all those working in the fields of cardiovascular care and research in the UK; we aim to represent and support both the professionals who work in cardiology and the patients for whom we want to encourage the best possible treatment.
Improving and Extending Lives
The British Heart Rhythm Society acts as a unifying focus for professionals involved in arrhythmia care and electrical therapies in the UK.
This powerpoint discusses intracadiac electrograms. It is critically important for all electrophysiologists to understand in detail how unipolar and bipolar signals are recorded and how they should be interpreted in order to maximise the safety and success of epc studies and catheter ablation procedures...
This PowerPoint slide presentation is intended for a wide EP audience. It reviews the factors that must be present for cardiac reentry to occur, explains the concept of the "excitable gap," demonstrates how pacing can be used to "take over" a circuit (entrainment of the circuit), and shows how bipolar electrogram recordings are interpreted in the context of...
This PowerPoint slide presentation is intended for a wide EP audience. It starts with the basic concepts behind pace mapping, and proceeds to review various scenarios where pacing may produce a QRS morphology that is misleading, potentially resulting in false conclusions about the relevance of that pacing site vis-a-vis the clinical PVC or ventricular tachycardia...
