Personal profile

Research Interests

My interests include: - Adults with congenital heart disease with arrhythmias, particularly, which type of device (pacemakers/defibrillators) is indicated in patients to prevent sudden cardiac death. - Management of arrhythmia in patients of all ages, from fetal arrhythmias to adult congenital patients. - Catheter ablation - of complex arrhythmias, and ways to minimize fluoroscopy. - Utilization of resynchronization in single ventricle patients and in patients with cardiomyopathy. - Screening athletes and patients on ADHD medications. - Prevention of sudden death in congenital central hypoventilation patients.

- Treatment of arrhythmias and prevention on sudden death in Adults with Congenital Heart Disease - Long-term outcome in adults with single ventricle Fontan physiology and the long-term outcome of Fontan conversion and arrhythmia surgery - Involvement in the national Pediatric Electrophysiology Society QI committee so we can institute outcome research in pediatric catheter ablations. - EP training for cardiology categorical fellow and advanced electrophysiology fellow - Ongoing EP teaching and training of cardiac catheterization lab staff

Adults with congenital heart disease and arrhythmias. Fetus, infants, children and adolescents with arrhythmias. Children who may require catheter ablation for arrhythmias. Children who may require cardiac devices.
