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 the coordinators, Prof Pekka Raatikainen and Dr David O. Arnar, all chairs of the EP national Working Groups of the National Cardiac Societies (50 out of 56 countires provided their data for this year's edition), as well as EHRA staff at the European Heart House and BIOTRONIK.

To all of them goes our deepest gratitude and appreciation.

The previous edition, "Comparative analysis of the EHRA White Book data 2010 - 2014" still remains accessible here.
