Journal of Arrhythmia

joacoverJournal of Arrhythmia, the official journal of the Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society (APHRS) and the Japanese Heart Rhythm Society (JHRS), aims to provide a scientific platform on which to promote excellence and advancement in the study and care of patients with cardiac rhythm disorders.

The Journal publishes peer-reviewed original clinical and basic research articles, along with case reports on all aspects of cardiac pacing and cardiovascular electrophysiology devoted to the ongoing developments of diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmia. Also included are reviews, editorials, ECGs for students and associated professionals, EPS and related devices for resident physicians, ad basic science information for clinicians. Much for the contributed material is requested, but unsolicited submissions are welcome and will be given full consideration.

EHRA/HRS/APHRS/SOLAECE Expert Consensus on Atrial Cardiomyopathies: Definition, Characterisation, and Clinical Implication

The atria provide an important contribution to cardiac function. Besides their impact on ventricular filling, they serve as a volume reservoir, host pacemaker cells and important parts of the cardiac conduction system (e.g. sinus node, AV node), and secrete natriuretic peptides like atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) that regulate fluid homoestasis. Atrial myocardium is affected by many cardiac and non-cardiac conditions and is, in some respects, more sensitive than ventricular.

2015 HRS/EHRA/APHRS/SOLAECE Expert Consensus Statement on Optimal Implantable Cardioverter-Defribrillator Programming and Testing

The benefits and risks of ICD theraphy for patients are directly impacted by the programming and surgical decisions made by the clinician. This expert consensus statement systematically describles four important clinical issues and addresses programming of: bradycardia mode and rate, tachycardia detection, tachycardia therapy, and intraprocedural testing of defibrillation efficacy.
