Heart Rhythm / Electrophysiology

The heart is a beautifully designed pump that relies on its own electrical system to beat and circulate blood throughout the body. Sometimes there is a problem with the heart’s electrical system – or electrophysiology – resulting in a heart rhythm disorder whereby the heart beats too fast, too slow or irregularly, which can lead to a number of complications, including stroke and even sudden death.

There are a number of advanced technologies and techniques for diagnosis and management:

Evaluation and treatment of atrial fibrillation, ventricular

tachycardia and other arrhythmias

Evaluation and treatment of syncope

Management of antiarrhythmic medications

Electrophysiology studies

Ablations

Holter monitors, event monitors, and implantable loop recorders

Implantation and management of pacemakers

Implantation and management of implanted cardioverter

defibrillators (ICDs)

Cardiac re-synchronization therapy and biventricular devices

Intracardiac echocardiograms
