Abstract

Systematic national effort to improve cardiac electrophysiology practice in Lebanon is lacking, and the quality improvement program mainly relates to individual efforts along with regulations, which are set as a "Road Map" by the Lebanese Arrhythmia Working Group. Lebanon currently has five electrophysiology laboratories. The "Road Map" mainly consists of creating a registry and a National Card for Electronic Device Holder, centralization of complex electrophysiology procedures in institutions where electrophysiologists are available, setting regulations to conform to international guidelines, and creating a National Arrhythmia Website and E-Journal. Most importantly, we emphasize that the practice of device checking must be performed by physicians with expertise and not by industry technicians.
