Dr. Darren Sidney, with Charleston Heart Specialists, likes the satisfaction of solving a puzzle, and admits that's part of what drew him to his profession.
As an electrophysiologist – or electrician for the heart – he often finds himself tracking down the source of an irregular heartbeat. He also likes knowing that his work can make a difference. A defibrillator he implants might one day save the patient's life by shocking the heart back into a steady rhythm. A pacemaker he puts in might bring immediate quality-of-life improvements to a patient with congestive heart failure. "Someone who can't walk a block – all of the sudden they can walk 5-10 blocks."
