Dr. Poole is a UW professor of medicine in the division of cardiology. Her
clinical interests include patients with heart rhythm disorders such as rapid rhythms, slow rhythms, identification of episodes of passing out, evaluation for individuals at risk for cardiac arrest and evaluation for pacemaker or implantable defibrillators.

Patient Care Philosophy

Every patient is equally important and deserves consideration of his/her concerns and symptoms. I believe each patient is a partner in his/her health care. Patients should be provided with adequate information and education regarding their concerns or illness in order to make the best decision for evaluation and treatment options.

Personal Interests

Family, skiing, walking, hiking and reading books.

Clinical Interests

Abnormal fast and slow heart rhythm disorders and evaluation of patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest, both those with underlying heart disease or individuals with heritable disorders that place them at risk. Also, management of heart rhythm disorders associated with heart failure, congenital heart disease and cardiac muscle disorders.

Teaching Interests

She is the director of the clinical cardiac electrophysiology program, training advanced residents (fellows) in the field of electrophysiology and cardiac arrhythmias. She interfaces with fellows in the clinical cardiovascular disease fellowship program as well as residents and medical students who are rotating through cardiology services.

Scope of Care

She sees patients with a broad spectrum of heart rhythm abnormalities or symptoms that could be explained by a heart rhythm abnormality. She provides consultation to other physicians and offers medical and procedural therapy when appropriate to the patient problem. She performs the surgical placement of implantable pacemakers and implantable defibrillators, in addition to other procedures specific to the heart rhythm condition.

Research Interests

Prevention of sudden cardiac death through the use of implantable cardioverter defibrillators, automatic external defibrillation, technologic advancements in implantable devices to treat heart rhythm disorders and assessing complications of device procedures.
