Contact has been minimized with the permanent pacemaker kiosk

While the social distance is of great importance in the fight against the new type of corona virus (Covid-19), which affects the whole world, a “permanent pacemaker kiosk” was established in our Ankara City Hospital to minimize the contact of patients with permanent pacemakers and doctors.

While social distance and contact took a big place in the fight against the new type of coronavirus (Covid-19), which has influenced the whole world, studies have started for the new life.


In this context, a “permanent pacemaker kiosk” was established in the Cardiology Clinic of our Cardiovascular Hospital in Ankara City Hospital, under the responsibility of Prof. Dr. Serkan Çay.

With the kiosk created for use in the control of permanent pacemaker patients, it is possible to eliminate the contact between the patient and the medical staff. While the pacemaker monitoring device used and acquainted by the kiosk machine in follow-ups is activated without touching the patient, the kiosk uploads the information to the electronic environment. After the process, which takes seconds, the information is securely stored on the internet.
