Dear patients,

Please read the full text below for important information regarding our upcoming shut down period.

Canberra Heart Rhythm would like to advise you we will have a shut down period over the holidays, from Saturday the 18th of December 2021 to Monday the 3rd of January 2022. We will be back to normal operations as of Tuesday the 4th of January 2022 at 9AM.

If you have an implanted cardiac device currently on our home monitoring, you will continue to be monitored during this period. However, you will only be contacted for urgent alerts. There may be delays in receiving notification of your alert unless the alert is life threatening.

Our nurse and device helplines will be closed during this period. All other practice phones and emails will not be monitored during this period. If you need any medical advice, please consult your GP or call 000 if it is an emergency.

The Canberra Heart Rhythm Team wish you the happiest of holidays and look forward to seeing you in the new year.

Kind regards,

Dr Pathak presented at the Covai Heart Rhythm Summit (CHRS) webinar in November 2021. 

Covai Heart Rhythm Summit, is a specialty conference from the Division of Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology, has been at the forefront in spreading knowledge in the field of cardiac arrhythmias. Atrial Fibrillation is an irregular and often rapid heart rhythm. Patients with AF may experience palpitations and have a higher risk of stroke. Dr Pathak focused on AF management in this presentation.


Dr Pathak participated in the Medtronic Global Grand Rounds Webinar - "An individualised ATP algorithm for reducing unnecessary shocks" on 09 December 2021. 

Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is an irregular heart rhythm arising from the heart's lower chambers. The anti-tachycardia pacing (ATP) algorithm is one of the treatment methods to terminate VT and restore normal heart rhythm. Dr Pathak discussed his clinical experiences of using ATP and efficacy of the novel intrinsic ATP (iATP) algorithm. 


On 14 August 2021, Prof.Rajeev Pathak participated in the live webinar, part of the Asia Pacific Heart Rhythm Society (APHRS) Interventional Atrial Fibrillation Curriculum, which provides training on signal interpretation, diagnosis, and comprehensive approaches to ablation techniques. It includes theory, case discussions and live webinars, providing a platform for interactions with faculty of experts.
