Standards and Guidelines

ISHLT develops and makes available to the profession and the public practice guidelines, standards statements, and consensus documents regarding all aspects of advanced heart and lung failure. ISHLT also collaborates with other professional organizations to develop such documents.

To date, ISHLT has solely produced or collaborated to produce more than 30 such documents, with several more currently under development. Spanish Translations of several S&G documents are now available, and more translations into Spanish and other languages will be added every year.
