Investing in Opportunity

The Peter Munk Cardiac Centre is known for its ability to care for the most complex cardiac cases. It is the expertise, knowledge and access to state-of-the-art technology that allows our specialists to treat and save the lives of cardiac patients needing multifaceted care. We are expanding our infrastructure to include two state-of-the-art Electrophysiology Suites.

This expansion will:
[list_arrow2]

  • Allow for rapid access to arrhythmia therapies
  • Create a Centre of Excellence dedicated to ablation therapy
  • Attract specialized operators who seek out institutions with state-of-the-art equipment and a high volume of cases
  • Establish a state-of-the-art suite dedicated to complex patient cases
  • Increase the volume of routine ablation cases by more than 15% and increase the volume of complex cases by 60%

[info_box1 title="ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY SUITE #1"]Single plane fluoroscopy $1.2M: Obtains real-time moving images of the internal structures of a patient with decreased dose rates
Workmate Mapping System $400k: Information from the tip of the catheter is displayed using this mapping system to show patients electrical (cardiac) information
EP Stimulator $80k: Stops and starts arrhythmias
RF Generator $75k: Delivers ablation treatment
Lead Shield $75k: Protective shield for specialists during exposure to x-rays[/info_box1]

[info_box1 title="ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY SUITE #2"]Bi-plane fluoroscopy $2M: Real-time moving images of the internal structures of a patient, decreased dose rates and improved localization for complex cases from Bi-plane
Lead Shield $75k: Protective shield for specialists during exposure to x-rays
RF Generator $75k: Delivers ablation treatment
Integrated Complex Mapping System $600k: System to show the electrical map of a patient in 3D, for improved visuals
Odyssey Integrated Monitor and Control Room System $600k: Stores all the data and displays it on one monitor system mounted to a swinging boom to allow operator and nurses in control room to see it[/info_box1]
