Cardiac Device Clinic

The Cardiac Device Clinic at Zulekha Hospital provides ongoing follow-up care, regular evaluation, and management of cardiac devices (pacemakers/ICDs).

The staff provides education, evaluation, and troubleshooting for complex heart device issues and offer remote monitoring to patients with Pacemakers, Biventricular Pacemaker, Implantable Loop Recorder, and Implantable Cardiac Devices (ICDs).

Our goal is to provide safe, compassionate, and therapeutic care for patients undergoing device procedures.

Procedures

  • Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)
  • An ICD is a battery-powered device placed under the skin that keeps track of one’s heart rate. Thin wires connect the ICD to the heart. If an abnormal heart rhythm is detected the device will deliver an electric shock to restore a normal heartbeat if the heart is beating chaotically and much too fast.

    ICDs have been very useful in preventing sudden death in patients with known, sustained ventricular tachycardia or fibrillation. Studies have shown that they may have a role in preventing cardiac arrest in high-risk patients who haven't had, but are at risk for, life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias.

  • Pacemaker
  • A pacemaker is a small device that helps one’s heart beat more regularly. It does this with a small electric stimulation that helps control the heartbeat. The doctor puts the pacemaker under the skin on the chest, just under the collarbone. It’s hooked up to the heart with tiny wires. One may need a pacemaker to keep the heart beating properly. This helps the body get the blood and oxygen it needs. Some people just need a pacemaker for a short time (like after a heart attack) and may use a kind that’s outside the skin.

  • Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)
  • Arrhythmias are irregular heart rhythms and can be caused by a variety of reasons, including age, heart damage, medications and genetics. In heart failure patients CRT, or biventricular pacing, is used to help improve the heart’s rhythm and the symptoms associated with the arrhythmia.

    The procedure involves implanting a half-dollar sized pacemaker, usually just below the collarbone. Three wires (leads) connected to the device monitor the heart rate to detect heart rate irregularities and emit tiny pulses of electricity to correct them. In effect, it is "resynchronizing" the heart.

  • Dr. Shawl is currently the Director of Interventional Cardiology at Washington Adventist Hospital in Takoma Park, Maryland, as well as clinical Professor of Medicine at George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C., USA & Visiting Interventional Cardiologist to Zulekha Hospital Dubai since 2006.
  • In 1977, Dr. Shawl moved to the United States from UK and completed his cardiology fellowship at The Walter Reed Army Medical Center. Dr. (Maj.) Shawl brought the military into the balloon age when he performed the first PTCA in the United States Military (Army, Navy, Air Force) at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in 1981. Between 1979 and now, Dr. Shawl has retained clinical appointments at Georgetown University School of Medicine, George Washington University School of Medicine and the Uniformed Services University School of Medicine, while developing leadership roles in Interventional Cardiology at both Washington Adventist Hospital and George Washington University Hospital.
  • Dr. Fayaz Shawl has been a pioneer in virtually every area of interventional cardiology since he performed the first angioplasty at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington DC in 1981. Dr Shawl, having performed more than 20,000 angioplasty procedures, is considered among few other interventionists in the world.
