The 2017 ISHNE / HRS expert consensus statement on ambulatory ECG and external cardiac monitoring/telemetry has recently been published simultaneously in Annals of Noninvasive Electrocardiology and Heart Rhythm.
This important document was prepared by an international group of experts in the field of  non-invasive electrocardiology. Now it is  available on the websites of both journals. Below  are the links to the document:

All accepted abstracts will be PUBLISHED in the Journal of Electrocardiology. A special issue of the Journal of Electrocardi- ology will publish accepted peer-reviewed manuscripts, originated from the selected accepted abstracts, after a peer-review. Submit to

Dear Friends:

At our last Board of Trustees meeting, I asked the Board to consider merging our biannual congress with other socieities’ congresses that had similar or near identical orientation and focus to ours. The advantages were multiple and included the potential for larger and more diverse audiences, pooling of financial resources, and greater suport opportunities. The Board unanimously approved the proposal and exploratory discussion with other ECG societies was endorsed.

The history of ISHM and its successor ISHNE began with scientific symposia. In 1979 Antonio Bayes de Luna organized a first international educational symposium on Holter Electrocardiography in Barcelona, which was presented as a professional service by Del Mar Avionics, Irvine, USA. At this symposium Bruce Del Mar started a longstanding partnership with ISHM and ISHNE and their many scientific members up to the present time. In 1983 Vinzenz Hombach, who was not aware of Antonio´s symposium, organized an international meeting on Holter Monitoring in Cologne. He invited Shlomo Stern as one of the international leaders in Holter monitoring and in particular as an expert of silent myocardial ischemia detected by Holter electrocardiography to present a paper on silent ischemia, but Shlomo was unable to come to Cologne. Instead of Shlomo, Dan Tzivoni, his co-worker, presented work on silent myocardial ischemia. In 1985 Vinzenz Hombach organized a second international symposium in Cologne entitled “Invasive Cardiovascular Therapy – Recent Advances and Future Developments”.

On March 3, 2016 passed away Professor  John  E. Gialafos MD, FESC, FACC, an early member and conitinuous supporter of ISHNE, a pioneer in pacing and arrhythmias in Greece. He was 81 years old.

Seventh Winter ISHNE Meeting at XXII Conference of the Working Group on Non-Invasive Electrocardiology and Telemedicine of Polish Cardiac Society was held on 2-5 March 2016 in Zakopane – the capital of the Polish Tatra mountains.

We are pleased to invite you to participate in Seventh Winter ISHNE Meeting at Conference of the Working Group on Non-Invasive Electrocardiology and Telemedicine  of Polish Cardiac Society that will be held on 2-5 March 2016 in the city of Zakopane – the capital of . the Polish Tatra mountains. As every year we meet to spent a few days at studying most basic, but also most important of cardiac studies, it means ECG! As every year for those who like ECG we prepared a lot of theoretical and practical scientific sessions and workshops!

16-17th October 2015 the 4th Conference «Controversies of Modern Cardiology: disputable and unresolved questions» and 3d Forum of Young Cardiologists took place in Samara (Russia). More than 1100 participants from Russia, USA, Portugal, Czech Republic, and Germany visited the Conference this year. The Program comprised more than 50 scientific and industry symposium. Three of them were under the auspices of International Society of Holter and Noninvasive Electrocardiology.

Being a major diagnostic criterion in the context of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia (ARVC/D), epsilon wave has great impact on the diagnostic score, which can be pivotal in patients with minimal clinical manifestations of the disease or family members undergoing screening for ARVC/D.  However, it remains not quantifiable and therefore may leave room for substantial subjective interpretation.

ISHNE Epsilon Wave Initiative was aimed to assess interobserver variability in regard to assessment of ECG patterns representing right precordial leads in subjects undergoing clinical screening for ARVC/D.
