EVERY HEART MATTERS CAMPAIGN

Dan Lewans of Swift Current was referred to cardiologist Dr. Carlo Stuglin at Royal University Hospital, where he was diagnosed with a heart rhythm disorder. What a relief! Now he and his wife Pauline knew why he had fainting spells and shortness of breathe. But was there a treatment? Could he return to the active life he'd led before?

At the time, Dr. Stuglin and his colleague Dr. Kelly Coverett were trialing a new high-tech piece of equipment they wished to obtain for their work at RUH. This 3-D imaging equipment allowed Dr. Stuglin to "see" into Dan's heart, identify the area that was misfiring and treat the problem with an ablation procedure. Within days, Dan was enjoying the outdoors again.

"I'm completely cured," says Dan. "It saved my life."

Please support the Every Heart Matters Campaign so that more people like Dan can be treated close to their homes and families here in Saskatchewan. Call the RUH Foundation at 306-655-1984 or donate online

Ruth Harker left the province for treatment of her heart rhythm disorder. She is not alone. Until we establish a Cardiac EP Lab at RUH, patients like Ruth will continue to travel elsewhere for this life-saving treatment. Read more of Ruth's story.

 

Lorna Callbeck is waiting for a cure. A cardiac patient since birth, she has decided not to leave the province for treatment of her heart rhythm disorder in the hope it will be available at RUH soon. Read more of Lorna's story
