Sala is proficient in interrogation of cardiac pacemakers and internal cardiac defibrillators (ICD) and trained in device programming. Pacemakers are cardiac devices that stimulate heart contraction; ICDs are devices that
attempt to restore normal heart rhythms.

He is also a sub-investigator for ongoing research studies at Central Maine Heart Associates.
