The Pediatric and Congenital Electrophysiology Society (PACES), a nonprofit
organization, is an international group of physicians and allied professionals
dedicated to improving the care of children and young adults with cardiac rhythm
disturbances. The group's primary mission is to foster high-quality collaborative
research and exchange of ideas on arrhythmia topics that are particularly
relevant to infants and children, or patients of any age with congenital
heart disease. The society will, in addition, strive to represent its members
on issues pertaining to education in pediatric electrophysiology and related
health care policies.
