Dr.David Chase

Dr David Chase, an alumnus of CMC Vellore (MBBS 1988, MD General Medicine 1994, DM Cardiology 1998) worked for eight years in mission hospitals both in Andhra Pradesh (for the most part as a non-interventional cardiologist catering to semi-urban patients) and for a short while in Karnataka, for fulfilling his service obligation, as well as in the private sector for about two years as a Cardiology consultant. Subsequently, from the year 2004 to 2009, he pursued cardiac electrophysiology fellowships in Australia for specialized training in Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing over a period of three and half years of the five years spent there, in Adelaide (1.5 years, Flinders Medical Centre with Dr Cameron Singleton) and in Melbourne (Monash Medical Centre with Dr. Jeff Alison and The Austin with Dr. David o’Donnell). This provided the foundation in basic and progressively advanced cardiac pacing and electrophysiology practice which included being trained in ‘state-of-the-art’ cardiac implantable electronic device implantation, cardiac arrhythmia as well as syncope evaluation and management. This prolonged training period in addition to progressively increasing proficiency in the above permitted exposure to ‘the science and practice of cardiac electrophysiology in the first world’ through conferences and international cardiac society meetings as well as training in the use of cryo-ablation for ablation procedures which included the Arctic Front Cryo-balloon ablation for Atrial Fibrillation which at that time were just being practiced or initiated by just a couple of practitioners in Australia. Further, it provided the rare and unique opportunity to observe device explantations by the only authorised expert at that time.
