2012-2013 Annual Report - Capital Health

"Many patients and families expressed frustration over the waiting list, telling us their atrial fibrillation episodes were significantly affecting their quality of life," said Dr. John Sapp, director of the Heart Rhythm Service at Capital Health's QEII Health Sciences Centre.
Sapp teamed up with heart health portfolio director Karen MacRury-Sweet to find a solution that would address the patients' concerns and help improve the quality of life for those waiting for treatment. "Many patients expressed frustration over having to wait in the hospital for two to three days prior to the procedure," said Sapp. "Patients told us they wanted to have someone to talk to about pre-procedure issues and post-procedure concerns," said Sapp. He told us this was the first time that he really understood what he was going to have done, as he had never before had it explained to him in such detail," said Sapp. The work of Sapp and his team is currently being studied to see how it can be applied to other health-care teams at Capital Health. It also recently won a gold Capital Health Quality Award, which recognizes the efforts and success of our health-care teams to come up with innovative ways to better provide quality health care. "It's so great to be able to fix something in health care," said Sapp. Dr. John Sapp, left, director, Heart Rhythm Service at Capital Health's QEII Health Sciences Centre, and Dr. Rajat Sharma, fellow at the Heart Rhythm Service, prepare their equipment to begin mapping the areas of a patient's heart that are causing atrial fibrillation.

Cardiac electrophysiologist Dr. John Sapp spent two years at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, treating post-heart-attack cardiac arrhythmias.
Upon his return to Dalhousie and Capital Health in 2003, he began a research program in 'body-surface mapping.' This technique pinpoints the location of scar tissue causing the arrhythmia, improving the speed and accuracy of corrective surgery.

Home » Researchers » Dr. John Sapp Dr. John Sapp Dr. John Sapp Cardiac electrophysiologist, Dr. John Sapp is leading long-term international studies to see if a procedure known as catheter ablation works better than aggressive drug therapy for treating ventricular tachycardia. "Catheter ablation is an invasive procedure that carries serious risks," notes Dr. Sapp, a professor in Dalhousie Medical School's Division of Cardiology. "However, the best drugs for regulating heart rhythm don't always work and may damage the lungs, liver, skin and thyroid. The research will reveal which is the safest and most effective way to reduce shocks and prevent sudden death, in which circumstances. At the same time, Dr. Sapp is pioneering new techniques and instruments to make catheter ablation safer and more effective. The procedure involves inserting a thin wire into the heart through a blood vessel, to deliver a surge of energy that repairs the electrical short circuit. "The challenge with ablation is to pinpoint the exact location of the short circuit and deliver the right amount of energy," says Dr. Sapp. "Too little won't fix the problem; too much can damage surrounding tissues." Dr. Sapp and his colleagues are pioneering a non-invasive technique called body-surface mapping, which uses electrodes on the skin to find the precise location of the short circuit. He is also working with a commercial partner to introduce a catheter he has co-invented that repairs short circuits so deep inside the heart muscle that standard technology cannot reach them.
