BACKGROUND There is limited information on the availability of health services to treat cardiac arrhythmias in Africa. METHODS The Pan-African Society of Cardiology (PASCAR) Sudden Cardiac Death Task Force conducted a survey of the burden of cardiac arrhythmias and related services over two months (15 October to 15 December) in 2017. An electronic questionnaire was completed by general cardiologists and electrophysiologists working in African countries. The questionnaire focused on… CONTINUE READING
