Help In a Heartbeat

When Mr. Pearce's heart slowed, Medix was there to raise some pulses

Mr. Pearce (75) has a history of heart problems. In the past these problems led to him undergoing an aortic valve transplant. however, since the surgery, he had no other major complaints. Feeling relieved of any illness, he opted for a lifestyle change, taking up residence on an island in the Philippines.

 

Unfortunately following the move, Mr. Pearce started suffering from dizzy spells, slow heart rate and  one blackout that lasted a few minutes. After a few months of symptoms, Mr. Pearce consulted with his cardiologist who carried out an ECG. The test results revealed that he has a complete heart block.

 

So what does heart block mean? Well, in a perfectly functioning heart, electric pulses regulate how the atria and ventricles contract, pumping blood through our system. For this to work properly, these sections of the heart need to work in sync. With complete heart block, these two components don't communicate effectively, slowing the patient's pulse and drastically impeding the heart's ability to pump blood as needed.

 

After receiving the diagnosis, Mr. Pearce was advised to seek further treatment from a specialist and was sent home. Feeling that this advice was not satisfactory, Mr. Pearce turned to Medix

 

Immediately after taking up the Medix service, the dedicated medical case managerspoke to Mr. Pearce in order to get an idea of the clinical situation. After hearing the details, the case manager quickly recognised the urgency and severity of the condition at hand.

 

Complete heart block is an advanced stage of a serious conduction problem in the heart. In addition, the blackout suffered by Mr. Pearce was a telltale sign of advanced deterioration of heart function requiring immediate intervention. 

 

Mr. Pearce was advised to immediately travel to a neighboring island where an adequate cardiac facility would be able to treat him. At the same time, the ECG test results were reviewed a second time by a Medix Cardiologist who confirmed the dire situation Mr. Pearce was in.

  

The Medix team acted immediately: following up on travel arrangements, summarising the medical information for the prospective treating team and staying in ongoing contact with Mr. Pearce.

 

Working efficiently, the team completed these tasks quickly, allowing Mr. Pearce to undergo a pacemaker insertion procedure a mere few days following the initial intake. Involvement did not end post-surgery, with the case manager monitoring his recovery and supplying a follow plan.

 

Not long after the procedure Mr. Pearce was allowed to return to his island of residence. Looking back at the process, Mr. Pearce relayed that he was "extremely grateful for the help and support he received from Medix, without it, it seems like nothing would have happened to deal with my condition".
