Canberra Heart Rhythm Centre

News & Events

We are thrilled to announce the opening of our additional branch, South Coast Heart Rhythm, located at Broulee NSW in October 2023. In a significant step towards enhancing cardiac care in the region, Canberra Heart Rhythm has expanded its wings by establishing a new clinic in Broulee, located on the picturesque South Coast of New South Wales.


Explaining the motivation behind this strategic move, A/Prof Pathak stated, “Our aim is to bring specialised cardiac care closer to home for our patients. With the establishment of this clinic, residents of the coastal area no longer need to undertake the journey to Canberra for diagnostics and consultations.”


Our clinic will offer full cardiac diagnostic investigations including;

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Signal Average Electrocardiogram (SAECG)
  • Transthoracic echocardiogram
  • Holter monitoring
  • Exercise stress test
  • Tilt table test
  • Ambulatory Blood Pressure monitoring
  • Cardiac device monitoring and programming
  • Specialty clinics (Risk factor management and heart failure)


Prof Pathak is a highly specialised cardiac electrophysiologist, with extensive knowledge of cardiac arrhythmias and cardiac implantable electronic devices. He specialises in cardiac ablation of ventricular tachycardia (VT), atrial fibrillation (AF), atrial flutter (AFL), supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), AVNRT and ARVD. He also implants loop recorders, permanent pacemakers (PPM), implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and cardiac resynchronisation therapy devices (CRT).

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,

 Christmas Card

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.
