Setting Her Own Pace

Heart palpitations and dizziness are not something to ignore. In Ms D.'s case the insertion of a pacemaker was recommended. Was this invasive procedure the best treatment for her?

Ms D., a healthy middle-aged lady in her 50's, was living a relatively normal and active lifestyle when things took a turn for the worse. She began experiencing episodes of dizziness and palpitations and visited her local doctor when she suffered from a brief loss of consciousness. The diagnosis was Atrial Fibrillation, an irregular heartbeat that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. Her doctor immediately recommended that she be fitted with a pacemaker.

Although pacemakers have become a common form of treatment in such cases, the procedure itself is highly invasive and carries some risk. Before agreeing to have the surgery performed, Ms D. contacted Medix to have her case reviewed with the hope to find out what the best treatment option is and whether having a pacemaker is the right move forward.

Medix appointed Ms D. a Personal Medical Case Management team and a detailed medical intake was performed. All clinical records were investigated thoroughly. Based on the findings, Medix consulted on her behalf with a world renowned cardiac electrophysiology specialist.

Medix’ multidisciplinary medical team reviewed Ms D.'s case, discussed and gathered the various opinions into a final conclusion: the condition was not as severe as first thought, therefore making the surgery to install a pacemaker not necessary. Instead it was suggested that Ms D. be treated by catheter ablation, a minimally-invasive procedure used to correct the faulty electrical impulses within the heart. This was discussed with her treating doctor who agreed with Medix' recommendations.

Following the procedure, Medix created a monitoring plan, including clinical follow ups and periodic evaluations of her heart rhythm and blood pressure. Ms D. and her family were delighted with the outcome of the treatment as it proved she was able to avoid major surgery and return to her life.
