Innovative Health - Fall 2017
The timing on new cardiac technology
available at McLaren Flint could not
have been more perfect for Michael
Johnson, age 62, of Grand Blanc.
His interventional cardiologist, Ethiraj
Raj, MD, recently diagnosed him with
bradycardia,and he was in need of a
pacemaker to treat it.
This condition is characterized by a slow or irregular heart
rhythm, usually 60 beats per minute or less. At this rate,
the heart is unable to pump enough oxygen rich blood
to the body during normal activity or exercise, causing
dizziness, fatigue, shortness of breath or fainting spells.
