Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) therapy is clearly an effective therapy for selected patients in definable populations. The benefits and risks of ICD therapy are directly impacted by programming and surgical decisions. This flexibility is both a great strength and a weakness, for which there has been no prior official discussion or guidance. It is the consensus of the 4 continental electrophysiology societies that there are 4 important clinical issues for which there are sufficient ICD clinical and trial data to provide evidence-based expert guidance. This document systemati- cally describes the greater than 80% (83%–100%, mean 96%) required consensus achieved for each recommendation by official balloting in regard to the programming of (1) bradycardia mode and rate, (2) tachycardia detection, (3) tachycardia therapy, and (4) the intraprocedural testing of defibrillation efficacy. Representatives nominated by the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS), European Heart Rhythm Association (EHRA), Asian Pacific Heart Rhythm Society (APHRS), and the Sociedad Latinoamericana de Estimula- cion Cardiaca y Electrofisiologia (SOLAECE-Latin Amer- ican Society of Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology) participated in the project definition, the literature review, the recommendation development, the writing of the docu- ment, and its approval. The 32 recommendations were balloted by the 35 writing committee members and were approved by an average of 96%.
