Position: Cardiac Electrophysiologist
Location: London, UK
Prof. Ernst is a German cardiac electrophysiologist with a special expertise in complex arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmia both in paediatric and adult patients. In 2007, she accepted the position of Research Lead Electrophysiology at the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust in London and is a Professor of Practice (Cardiology) at the National Heart and Lung Institute of Imperial College since 2019. She is one of the pioneers of remote magnetic navigation and has established this technique from its’ initiation to clinical routine using state of the art equipment including advanced 3D mapping and imaging techniques. Especially patients with congenital heart disease, complex anatomy and drug-refractory arrhythmias are benefitting from these advances and form a major emphasis in Prof. Ernst’s clinical work. Besides being well published in peer-reviewed journals, Prof. Ernst published a book on “Anatomy for Cardiac Electrophysiologists” together with Prof. Siew Yen Ho (Cardiac Morphology, Imperial College) in 2012, which is now also available in Chinese. A second volume to this benchmark publication is currently in preparation.
