Dr Devinder Singh is the Medical Director and Senior Consultant Cardiologist at Cadence Heart Centre, Singapore. Before his private practice, he served as a Senior Consultant in the Department of Cardiology at the National University Heart Centre Singapore (NUHCS) and Visiting Consultant at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital Singapore. He was also the Director of Cardiac Informatics at National University Hospital (NUH) and holds the position of Assistant Professor at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS).
His expertise lies in clinical cardiology, cardiac rhythm disorders (arrhythmia), cardiac pacing (including cardiac resynchronisation therapy) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. He performs electrophysiology studies and radiofrequency ablation of cardiac arrhythmias, and is well versed in pacemaker and defibrillator insertions.
Heart rhythm disorders, also known as heart arrhythmias, occur when there is a problem with the electrical signals that coordinate heart beats. This causes the heart to beat too fast (tachycardia), too slow (bradycardia) or irregularly.
Chest pains can be caused by a variety of conditions. An example of heart-related chest pain is angina, which is pain and discomfort felt when the heart muscle does not receive sufficient oxygen-rich blood. This is often telling of a more serious condition, such as Coronary Artery Disease (CAD).
As symptoms could often indicate a variety of heart problems, a combination of non-invasive and minimally invasive cardiac investigations help your cardiologist provide a comprehensive diagnosis and discern the best course of treatment for your condition. Common investigations are Electrocardiograms (ECG) and Holter Monitoring.
Pacemakers and defibrillators are implantable devices that help treat a wide range of arrhythmias or heartbeat irregularities by monitoring and regulating a person’s heartbeat. Pacemakers are used to correct heartbeats that are too slow, while Defibrillators are used in cases of heartbeats that are too fast.
