This is how the entrance door look like to get into the pacing room. Yup we do emergency temporary pacing for heart block, symptomatic bradycardia with significant long pause on cardiac ECG, sick sinus syndrome . There are some reversible causes of heart block or bradycardia (low heart rate) that once corrected ..we can take off the temporary wire or else the patients have to be subjected to permanent pacemaker either single or dual chamber pacing .
We practice the ideal way of inserting a pace maker by flouroscopy guide and to establish the exact site for the pacemaker to generate its sensing.
I visited my boss today , Dr Ting CK in paedatric ward after his son had a surgery,, yup a minor one. I went there with Mee Kuan, drug reps from MSD when she dropped by HUKM to send this huge photo of the MSD course i have attended recently and it came with a photo frame..Thanks Mee Kuan. My boss took leave to accompany his son and i had the oppurtunity to meet his daughter and his wife. My boss did read my blog !!! Errr.. I never believe that he started up lifting weight again after reading my TRANSFORMATION entry.. ha ha but his wife had actually confirmed that.. NOW I BELIEVE that !! I never had any idea that i inspire people with my entry...feeling damn good to know that... Thanks to everyone who find my entry a motivational one... i am flattered.
To Dr Ting CK.. always miss your laugh when you are not around during ward round...you are not only i respect as a good boss but a good friend too... Hope your son has a speedy recovery..
