BHRS Case Challenge: February 2021

We are pleased to announce the next BHRS ECG/EGM Challenge with an interesting case entitled:

Management of an unexpected finding during a routine pacemaker follow-up – what action would you take??

This case was contributed by Salma Nowell, Chief Cardiac Physiologist, Epsom & St Helier NHS Trust and Dr John P Foran, Consultant Cardiologist & Electrophysiologist, Epsom & St Helier NHS Trust, and Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS 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 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.
