Heart is a muscular organ that pumps blood to all the parts of the body. Heart pumps blood which is rich in oxygen and nutrients into the circulatory system. This system consists of blood vessels, such as arteries, veins, and capillaries which take blood that is pumped from heart into organs and receive blood from organs to heart.Read More
An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate and or rhythm of the heartbeat. During an arrhythmia, the heart can beat too fast, too slow, or can be irregular. Aarrhythmia that is too fast is called tachyarrhythmia. Arrhythmia that is too slow is called bradyarrhythmia. During irregular rate or rhythm, the heart may not be able to pump enough blood to the body.Read More
Although mostly arrhythmias are symptomatic, sometimes they may not produce any symptoms. Some serious arrhythmias like atrial fibrillation can be asymptomatic and present with stroke (AFincreases chance of stroke by 500%), while not so harmful arrhythmias like premature beats can be very symptomatic.Read More
This course is designed to train Cardiologists in the sub-speciality of Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology. This will equip them to work as trained Cardiac Electrophysiologists capable of handling paediatric and adult rhythm abnormalities.
The course aims to achieve excellence in the training of Electrophysiology Fellows in diagnosis and management of arrhythmic disorders and symptoms, including noninvasive and invasive diagnostic and therapeutic modalities, pacemaker implantation and follow-up, and ICD implantation and follow-up.
Sri Jayadeva Institute is the first and only certified laser lead extraction centre in the country. Students undergo formal training including hands-on training in the performance of radiofrequency ablations (conventional and 3D) as well as device implantation.
SCTIMST, an institute of national importance under Ministry of science and technology is offering post-doctoral fellowship program in EP since 2002. The electrophysiology programme in the department undertakes over 200 pacemaker implants and 250 electrophysiological studies supplemented by radiofrequency ablation each year.
This course is designed for post DM/DNB cardiology to train them in cardiac sub specialty of Electrophysiology
A two-week observational program for established medical doctors with experience in CRM devices and/or ablation, looking to expand their device and ablation expertise.
