Electrophysiology procedures relate directly to the treatment and care of disorders of the conduction system in the heart. This conduction system controls the rate and rhythm of the heart. Cardiac Rhythm Management includes treatment for:
- Bradycardia (slow heart rates)
- Tachycardia (fast heart rates and irregular beats)
- Treatments for heart failure
Examples of different arrhythmias include the following: palpitations (racing heart), fainting, atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and ventricular arrhythmias. There are various types of therapy used to treat these arrhythmias. Treatments include: medications, pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, and ablation.
Along with various treatments to arrhythmia there are also a variety of other heart procedures that may better suit your needs. If you are experiencing heart irregularities you should contact Beverly Hills Cardiology today.
