Board-certified devices specialist from London. Author and cardiology education enthusiast.
Why I love to teach
I’m an International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners (IBHRE) certified specialist in cardiac pacemakers and ICDs, and the chief cardiac physiologist in a pacemaker clinic that carries out over 4,000 pacemaker checks per year. My passion is education, and I created THE PAD website, a popular resource for cardiology information, and wrote the book Pacemakers Made Easy.
