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.


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.


Canberra Heart Rhythm are complying with ACT Health during the COVID-19 ACT lockdown period. Essential health care will still be going ahead, however there may be some changes to your appointment to keep everyone as safe as possible. We are reducing the number of people in the clinic at any one time by spreading out appointments, masks and social distancing will be mandatory, and some appointments will become telehealth appointments. We will be contacting all patients who need booking changes by phone. If you have any questions or concerns, please call our admin team on 02 5100 8302.

Dr Pathak has shown his leadership in cardiac science with a recent presentation for the ANU’s COVID-19 International peer support program webinar series.

COVID-19 has been the greatest healthcare challenge our world has seen in recent times. Patients with pre-existing cardiovascular disease have a higher case fatality rate. Cardiac complications secondary to COVID-19 present new challenges for doctors and scientists. Dr Pathak presented a review of the cardiac complications of COVID-19 their implications on management from an Australian and international perspective.

Dr Rajeev Pathak shared impressive results from two innovative ablation procedures leading to good patient outcomes at the Cardiac society of Australia and New Zealand Annual meeting:

Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) are extra heartbeats that begin in one of the heart's two lower pumping chambers (ventricles). PVCs have been shown as potentially causing or contributing to cardiomyopathy and heart failure. At the recent CSANZ 2021 annual scientific meeting, Dr Rajeev Pathak presented two VT (ventricular tachycardia) ablations that he performed in Canberra to treat PVCs. These ablations were complex and technical but both procedures had good outcomes. Dr Pathak fielded many technical questions from other electrophysiologists and led an educational and informative discussion that will benefit other patients requiring complex VT ablations. Congratulations to Dr Pathak on this well received presentation. Dr Pathak’s work here in Canberra will benefit not only our patients at CHR but other patients around the world.
