Poniżej przedstawiamy list Thomasa Ahn z zaproszeniem do udziału w amerykańskim rejestrze ICD i rozruszników serca:
Hello Dr. Andrzej Lubinski,
My name is Thomas Ahn, and I work for an independent research firm, Clinical Advisors, which is based in the United States. I was searching on the European Society of Cardiology website and I came across your name as the lead person for your country's heart rhythm association.
The reason for my email today is I am trying to reach out to centers/hospitals in your country where ICD and pacemaker implants are performed. The study that I am recruiting for tracks the trends in implant volumes of ICDs and pacemakers throughout Europe. Would your institution be interested in taking part in this study?
Moreover, do you think this study is something that you could forward on to your electrophysiology and arrhythmia colleagues within your country?
Those sites that choose to participate do benefit from enrollment. I do provide those enrolled sites with summarized data updates three times a year, along with a monthly honorarium payment. The data that I collect is simply the number of ICDs and pacemakers implanted at your institution on a monthly basis.
Please let me know if this is something that interests you, and feel free to forward this email on to colleagues of yours who also might be interested.
Thank you for your time.
Sincerely, Thomas Ahn
