The American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF)/American Heart Association (AHA) welcomes letters to inform its ongoing work and encourages such correspondence about its guidelines. Because the ACCF/AHA guideline development process is rigorous and involves several layers of review by the writing committee, external peer reviewers, and participating organizations in the document, the ACCF/AHA cannot respond to each issue raised after a guideline has been published. The information, however, is forwarded to the writing committee chair and oversight task force for review. If any issue is deemed by the ACCF/AHA to affect patient safety, it will be considered immediately. Otherwise, the information will be considered during the next update or revision of the guideline.
Please note: Lisa Bradfield is part of the ACCF/AHA staff.
