Dr. Villafañe established the first formal pacemaker clinic over 30 years ago. Our pacemaker clinic will see children, adolescents and adults with pacemakers or defibrillators.
At our pacemaker clinic we use a specialized pacemaker/defibrillator analyzer which will interrogate the generator unit and acquire vital information such as battery life, and lead condition, and will also detect any dysrhythmia.
During the pacemaker/defibrillator evaluation Dr. Villafañe performs stimulation and sensing thresholds to be sure that there is a safety margin between the generator unit's electrical output and the hearts electrical demands.
