BHRS Case Challenge: August 2021
We are pleased to announce the next BHRS ECG/EGM Challenge with an interesting case entitled:
Arrhythmia episodes recorded one day post subcutaneous ICD (S-ICD) implant. What is the cause?
This case was contributed by Emma Wright, Highly Specialist Cardiac Physiologist – St Georges University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
If you have an interesting case, ECG or EGM please consider submitting a report. It’s a great opportunity to show CPD and share experiences for others to learn from.
Submissions should include a brief case background, a question with multiple choice possible answers, the answer, an explanation, a brief discussion section if relevant and a minimum of one reference and be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading ‘BHRS Challenge Feature’
As part of our ongoing collaboration with Radcliffe Cardiology we are planning to co-publish successful submissions on the BHRS website and on a new case-based web platform, led by Professor Angelo Auricchio and the Radcliffe Group called the Arrhythmia Academy
As an incentive to submit cases the editor in chief of Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology Review (AER) journal, Dr Demosthenes Katritsis would like to select a ‘winning case’ each quarter and invite the author of these best cases to write a review or an expert opinion piece on the topic addressed, that would be published in the AER journal and indexed on PubMed.
