New Heart Failure Device Clinic

First Coast Heart and Vascular has started a Heart Failure- Device Clinic. Supervised by our 3 Electrophysiologists, Dr. Dinesh Pubbi, Dr. Neil Sanghvi, and Dr. Nicholas Mandalakas, and cardiac device clinic manager, Paul Begley, we are monitoring specific heart failure diagnostics in our implanted devices to help catch symptoms of HF before it progresses. We are hoping prevent future HF hospitalizations in our patients. Managing our heart failure patients with implantable devices is all about being proactive, not reactive, and catching HF early before it progresses. This patient, JM, came in today after her remote monitor sent us a transmission suggesting the patient may have been in the early stages of worsening HF. After talking with the patient, she immediately came in and was seen by Dr. Pubbi. The patient was so thankful she received a call and sure enough, was experiencing SOB and felt “awful” . These tools help us proactively manage our cardiac device clinic patients with heart failure. #FCHV #FirstCoastHeart #DrPubbi#DrSanghvi #DrMandalakas #Cardiology #cardiologists #HeartFailure #HF #HeartFailureDeviceClinic #GreatDoctors
