Nicholas T Skipitaris, MD
- ADJUNCT ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Medicine, Cardiology
I am a board-certified cardiologist and electrophysiologist and an assistant professor of medicine and cardiology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. I have more than 20 years of experience and am a specialist in cardiac electrophysiology: I evaluate the results of detailed technical procedures that determine abnormal heart rhythms and then design treatments appropriate for them.
I have expertise in:
* Atrial Fibrillation
* Atrial Flutter
* Cardiac Arrest
* Electrophysiology Study and Ablation
* Pacemaker and Defibrillator Insertion and Management
* Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia Ventricular Fibrillation
* Ventricular Tachycardia
I am the principal investigator in a cardiac clinical trial called The Vest Prevention of Early Sudden Death Trial (VEST) PREDiction of ICD Therapies (PREDICTS). I graduated from medical school at Brown University and am a member of the Hellenic Medical Society of New York. I am also a fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society.

- The Vest Prevention of Early Sudden Death Trial (VEST) PREDiction of ICD Therapies (PREDICTS)
Patients with decreased heart function after a heart attack are at some risk for abnormal heart beats that can result in death. At the present time, it is not possible to tell exactly who will have such problems and how this can be prevented. The purpose of this study is to de...
