Experience

Dr Yue has worked for the Trust since December 2006.

His sub‑specialty interest involves the diagnosis and management of all forms of heart rhythm disorders and conditions associated with sudden cardiac death. He is fully trained in the implantation and follow-up of pacemakers for treatment of bradyarrhythmias, defibrillators (ICD) for prevention of sudden death, and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices for treatment of heart failure. For catheter ablations, he utilizes both conventional techniques and three‑dimensional mapping technologies to investigate and target complex arrhythmic substrates.

Key achievements

  • Clinical lead in clinical governance for cardiovascular and thoracic care group.
  • National and international invited speaker in cardiac electrophysiology.

Research

Dr Yue has research interests in cardiac mapping techniques, cardiac repolarization, mechanisms of arrhythmias and risk assessment for sudden cardiac death.
