-for-performance programs (ie, contexts in which performance measures are used). New measures are initially evaluated for potential inclusion as performance measures. In some cases, a measure is insufficiently supported by the guidelines. In other instances, when the guidelines support a measure, the writing committee may decide it is necessary to have the measure tested to identify the consequences of measure implementation. Quality measures may then be promoted to the status of performance measures (...) . The writing committee acknowledges that the new measures created in this set will need to be tested and validated over time. By publishing this clinical performance and quality measure set, the writing committee encourages adoption of these performance and quality measures, which will help to facilitate the collection and analysis of data needed to assess the validity of these measures. In the future, the writing committee anticipates having data that will allow them to reassess whether any

was caused mostly by HF. Another study, PALLAS (Permanent Atrial Fibrillation Outcome Study), tested whether dronedarone reduced cardiovascular events in patients with permanent atrial fibrillation. PALLAS was terminated prematurely after enrolling 3236 patients because dronedarone was associated with an increase in cardiovascular death, stroke, and hospitalization for HF (HR, 1.81; 95% CI, 1.10–2.99; P =0.02). Thus, the prescribing information for dronedarone carries a black box warning that the drug

evidence that categorizing patients with CHD by this system enables management decisions or improves outcome. However, portions of the guidelines should apply to patients with CHD. The guidelines are clear that HF is a clinical diagnosis and that the presence of ventricular dysfunction or the result of any other single diagnostic test is not sufficient to make the diagnosis. This definition of HF as a clinical diagnosis not based solely on a diagnostic test also applies to patients with CHD (...) between NYHA class based on subjective description of symptoms and exercise capacity on cardiopulmonary exercise testing has been described. Children may be unaware of any limitation.

If no patient response is recorded, the defibrillation electrodes discharge gel onto the skin and ultimately deliver a shock via an apex-posterior vector.

However, there are several important relative contraindications. Patients with unipolar pacing (atrial or ventricular) cannot use a WCD because the large-amplitude pacing stimuli can interfere with arrhythmia detection. Additionally, patients who cannot detect or respond to patient responsiveness testing stimuli are not appropriate candidates for the WCD. Beyond the contraindications to WCD therapy
