Kristian tells us of the story of how he got into Cardiac Physiology and his desire to help more people through various mediums such as books (as Carl Robinson) and courses (Medmastery) and more recently as part of a start-up.
LOIS Medical is developing a new wearable device, the LOIS Respond to alert loved ones when someone they know with an ICD receives a shock with the aim of providing extra reassurance that the wearer is ok, thus alleviating any unnecessary stress and worry.

After our first meet-up in February 2015, I realised I was not alone. It was the first time since my cardiac arrest the previous year that I had spoken face-to-face with someone who had experienced what I had. This was also true for my wife, who also happened to be my lifesaver. From that meet-up, the idea of SCA UK was born. Since then, we have achieved a considerable amount, primarily providing information, resources and support to others in a similar situation but also raising the profile of survivorship and the need for better post-discharge care. We are starting to get traction in this, and with the formation of the charity, I genuinely believe we have a bright future ahead and will make a significant difference in the lives of many who join our ranks.
