The European Society of Cardiology is a nonprofit Association established under French Law of 1901 and is focused on the prevention, diagnosis and management of diseases of the heart and blood vessels.
This website has been developed under the direction of the European Heart Rhythm Association of the European Society of Cardiology (EHRA of the ESC). This resource has been developed by both specialised healthcare professionals and patients aiming at providing a dedicated platform for patients with cardiac devices and future recipients as well as their families and caregivers.
myrhythmdevice.org offers an up-to-date and neutral source for information that is based on the latest Clinical Practice Guidelines on cardiac devices. The information and advice contained on this website are designed to supplement the support and care you receive from your doctor or other healthcare provider. It is in no way a replacement for this care.
By providing straightforward, informative and easy to understand information related to the follow-up care, replacement and living with a device we hope to help you improve your knowledge and understanding of your condition and cardiac device in order to make informed, shared decisions with your physician.
If you have any comments or feedback about the website please contact us.

The European Society of Cardiology (ESC) represents over 95,000 cardiology professionals, principally from across Europe and the Mediterranean basin, but also from the rest of the world. Its mission is to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease.
The ESC achieves this through a variety of scientific and educational activities including the coordination of clinical practice guidelines, educational courses and initiatives, pan-European surveys on specific disease areas and the ESC Congress, the largest annual medical meeting in Europe.
