Boston Cardiac Foundation visits Asuncion,Paraguay 2012 and13

Dr.Salil Midha and Susan DeTurk helped in implanting 20 pacemakers for indigent patients with Dr.Adrian Ebner. Most patients had significant heart block and a heartbeat with less than 40 beats per minute. Normally, someone with this rate would not survive without a pacemaker.

Our 2013 mission was even more successful. Dr.Timothy Hudson and  Ms Susan DeTurk just returned in December 2013 after implanting 26 pacemakers for the poor. This mission was supported by Live for Evan team.


The Boston Cardiac Foundation would like to sincerely thank Dr.Adrian Ebner in Asuncion for his help and co-ordination of our mission. The BCF staff plans to visit Paraguay again in 2014.
