Heart's Electrical Eystem Topic of Nov. 5 Program

"Keeping the Beat" is the topic of a Central Maine Heart and Vascular Institute "Mini-Medical School" educational program set for November 5.

Cardiac electrophysiologist Guru F. Mohanty, M.D., will discuss the heart's electrical system and the effect of irregular heart rhythms. He will explain how pacemakers, internal defibrillators, and other devices are used to manage heart rhythms.

Cardiac electrophysiologists use an array of technologies to assess heart beat irregularities and develop treatment plans, which may include medications, therapeutic procedures, and implanted pacemakers and defibrillators.

Mohanty recently joined Central Maine Heart Associates after completing a cardiac electrophysiology fellowship at the Lahey Clinic Department of Cardiovascular Medicine in Burlington, Mass.

A graduate of Villanova University in Villanova, Pa., he earned his medical degree from Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia.

He completed residency training, including a year as chief resident, at the Lahey Clinic Department of General Internal Medicine. He served a cardiovascular medicine fellowship with the Lahey Clinic Department of Cardiovascular Medicine, where he was appointed chieffellow and named fellow of the year.

The Mini-Med presentation is set for 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Central Maine Medical Center School of Nursing and Health Professions, 70 Middle Street, Lewiston.

Interpreter services are available upon advance request.
