Musings in the life of an internist, cardiologist and cardiac electrophysiologist.
Is this Google Map in black and white sir? Wow amazing technology in there. I think the lower portion is the LVAD. Do not the know the rest. Would like to work around these areas and how the waveforms look. Fascinating...
- ablation catheter with long sheath- RV (doesn't look in apex though) catheter- His (maybe) catheter- ICD lead- metal stitches (sternotomy)- metal valve- 3D mapping system (Carto magnet in the foreground?)- ECG electrodes and leads- some kind of spinal stabiliztation sustem?
Lots of stuff! Is that perhaps an LVAD in the bottom right of the frame?
ICD leads both RA and RVFixed Quad in the RVAblation in long sheath prob going transseptal then curled in the LV outflow/Ao.Second catheter also transseptalICE catheterLVADLVAD tubingSpinal surgery fixation deviceECG surface leads
Likely too much.Likely too expensive.Likley just because we can.Likely unsustainable.
