The EHRA White Book


 "It is part of the task and privilege of EHRA to foster scientific discussion, create standards for education and training and offer help wherever necessary to harmonize treatment and access to the treatment of arrhythmias within its hemisphere."


The EHRA White Book 2016 is the ninth edition of a project that was launched in an attempt to understand the national realities with regard to treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.

Throughout the years the White Book has become a reference for those seeking information about electrophysiological procedures and implantation of cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) in Europe. No other publication provides such a comprehensive collection of data from 50 of the 56 member countries of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC). Moreover, the EHRA White Book contains valuable updated information about country demographics, key national healthcare and educational information, and reports about possible obstacles to ESC Guidelines implementation in each country.

The EHRA White Book has been made possible thanks to Prof Pekka Raatikainen, Dr David O. Arnar, all chairs of the national Working Groups / National Cardiac Societies of the 56 ESC countries, EHRA staff at the European Heart House, and last but not least the project sponsor, BIOTRONIK SE & Co. KG company.

To all of them goes our deepest gratitude and appreciation.
