Correspondence

The AHA and ASA encourage correspondence on guidelines and statements. The AHA and ASA welcome letters sent directly to us on guidelines and statements. The letters are brought to the attention of the Writing Committee chair/co-chairs. Any input that might have an impact on recommendations for patient care or patient safety will be considered immediately. Letters are also reviewed by the AHA/ASA Manuscript Oversight Committee. If a response is warranted, one will be sent and possibly posted on Professional Heart Daily. Publication of any letters to the editor on guidelines and statements in AHA/ASA journals is the purview of the editors and not the AHA/ASA. Letters on AHA/ASA guidelines and statements can be sent to pubauth@heart.org.
