New UW-Developed, Arrhythmia-Visualization Device May Save Lives, Prevent Strokes and Save Hospitals Money

Above, the AtriAmp supports clear, continuous displays of atrial signals in real time. The device was developed by Nick Von Bergen, MD (Associate Professor, Division of Cardiology) and his team at Atrility Medical.

As a UW Health pediatric cardiac electrophysiologist, Nick Von Bergen, MD, specializes in caring for children with abnormal heart rhythms, making him a highly valued resource who is often consulted after a child comes out of heart surgery – a time when arrhythmias are common and occasionally life threatening.
 
When a specialist like Von Bergen is called in, he focuses on achieving an accurate, rapid diagnosis with a constant eye on safety. To achieve the best outcome, Von Bergen depends on accurate interpretation of the signals coming from the heart’s electrical activity. Historically, this information is obtained from the bedside monitor or an electrocardiogram (EKG) in which electrodes are placed on the patient’s chest.
 
Currently the most easily accessible data source, EKG’s fall short of being a “gold standard” for identification of arrhythmias, especially when every minute counts.
 
“In a typical case, I may be caring for a baby whose heart rate is spiking at 190 after coming out of surgery,” says Von Bergen, “I want to know if that spike is a response to the baby requiring more fluids, or if this is a potentially more serious abnormal heart rhythm we need to address. Unfortunately, bedside monitors are not precise enough and EKGs can take up to 20 minutes to set up. By contrast, a constant stream of real-time accurate data would help us diagnose heart rhythm immediately and treat the child much sooner,” Von Bergen says. “For pediatric and adult patients, having this information can save lives, prevent strokes and reduce hospital expense.”

Another EKG flaw, Von Bergen adds, is that the atrial, or upper chamber heart signals can be very hard to discern compared with the ventricular, or lower chamber heart signals.
 
“When we rely on bedside monitors,” he says, “discerning accurate atrial signals from an EKG can be like trying to see a small candle burning near a bonfire,” Von Bergen says. “The atrial signals are so small relative to the much larger ventricular signals.”
 
Sensing an opportunity for improvement, Von Bergen was confident there had to be a better way to care for his patients. He began by cobbling together alligator clips, wires and duct tape. Calling it a “prototype” would be a stretch, but his instincts were in the right place.

100 Years of Care for Children

Above, posing with American Family Insurance Company’s lead gift for American Family Children’s Hospital are (left to right) Philip Farrell, MD, PhD (Emeritus Dean and Chair of Pediatrics) David Anderson, Donna K. Sollenberger, Harvey Pierce, Dennis Lund, MD, and Aaron L. Friedman, MD (Emeritus Faculty). This photo and the following article were shared with permission by Quarterly.
When you hear “University of Wisconsin-Madison,” what comes to mind first?

Perhaps it’s the campus’ reputation as one of the nation’s greatest public universities, its status as an internationally known research institution, or its beautiful setting along Lake Mendota. Many identify with the Badgers’ countless achievements over the past generation in football, basketball, hockey and other sports.
 
Few people, however, may realize that 2020 commemorates the 100th year in which UW-Madison faculty and staff have been caring for hospitalized children. Four campus locations have served as a children’s hospital, although the first three pale in comparison to UW Health’s beautiful, nationally recognized American Family Children’s Hospital, which opened in 2007.
 
The story began in 1920, with the opening of the Mary Cornelia Bradley Hospital for the Study of Children’s Diseases. Professor Harold C. Bradley, PhD, and his wife, Josephine Bradley, provided most of the funding to construct a pediatric hospital on Linden Drive in memory of their daughter. At age 6, Mary Cornelia Bradley had been stricken with measles, and she died from complications in 1916.
 
“I am grateful that my grandparents did something so wonderful after something so devastating,” says Peggy Timmerman, the daughter of one of Mary Cornelia Bradley’s brothers. “Although Mary’s death was seldom talked about, I’m told that this generous gift to the university helped my grandmother cope with the tragic loss of her daughter.”

New Grants


Christian Capitini, MD, Awarded ICTR Pilot Grant with Jenny Gumperz, PhD

Congratulations to Principal Investigator Christian Capitini, MD (Associate Professor, Hematology, Oncology & Bone Marrow Transplant), along with Co-PI Jenny Gumperz, PhD, Department of Medical Microbiology & Immunology, and pediatrics fellow Nicholas Hess, PhD, on the funding of their pilot grant entitled, “Uncovering Predictive Cellular Biomarkers of Graft-Versus-Host-Disease (GVHD) Following Hematopoetic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT).” This $25,000 Translational Basic & Clinical Research pilot grant was funded by the UW Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (ICTR), and the primary aim is to investigate whether circulating T cells show similar indicators of activation in human HSCT patients who go on to develop aGVHD (acute graft-vs-host-disease). This will be accomplished by testing left-over blood routinely collected from HSCT patients here at UW for analysis. The results from this project have the potential to address an unmet need for early predictive biomarkers to assess aGVHD risk in HSCT patients. A link to all ICTR pilot awards for 2020 can be found here.


Doug Dean III, PhD, Awarded Pilot Research Core Revitalization Program Grant

Congratulations to Principal Investigator Doug Dean III, PhD (Assistant Professor, Neonatology & Newborn Nursery) whose project “Computing Resources for Rapid Reconstruction and Analysis of Next Generation Magnetic Resonance” was selected by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education’s pilot Research Core Revitalization Program. The $127,712 grant will facilitate upgrading and expanding computing resources of the Brain Imaging Core (BIC) at the Waisman Center’s Intellectual & Developmental Research Center in order to support the rapid increasing computational demands of such methods. The project’s Co-PI is Steven Kecskemeti, PhD, Waisman Center, and Co-Investigator Andrew Alexander, PhD, Department of Medical Physics and Psychiatry.  More details about the BIC and this project can be found here.

Learner Tribute

 
Here’s what a student had to say about Katie Kelley, MD (Associate Professor, Division of General Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine):

"Dr. Kelley did a great job including me in pediatric longitudinal clinic. She frequently invited me to ask questions and participate in the care of her patients. As someone who had literally zero experience working with infants, she was very gracious with her time helping me learn how to perform exams for young children at different ages. I can tell she is deeply respected by the parents of her patients because all of them were very accommodating when asked whether I could exam or interview their child. I feel like I have a much better foundational understanding of pediatrics because of Dr. Kelley.
