Pacemaker/AICD Follow-Up Clinic:
We utilize representatives from Medtronic, St. Jude or Boston Scientific. Home monitoring is also
available for many pacemaker or AICD models. Home monitoring reduces the number of office visits
and is especially helpful for elderly patients or those with transportation problems or patients who
travel outside of the area.
Sleep disorders, especially sleep disordered breathing, contribute to many of the conditions which are
commonly managed in a cardiology practice. Each new patient is evaluated for a sleep disorder-at
minimum with a simple sleep questionnaire. Patients suspected of having a significant sleep disorder
will undergo more definitive evaluation.
Although sleep apnea is the most common condition treated, we have also successfully treated
patients for narcolepsy, primary hypersomnia, shift worker syndrome, phase advanced and phase
delayed syndromes as well as Klein-Levin syndrome.
