  • Cardiac Device Implantation & Management

    Cardiac electrophysiology is the study of the heart’s electrical system. The cardiologists at Metro Heart & Vascular are trained to diagnose, monitor, and treat abnormal heart rates (arrhythmias). They have a variety of tools at their disposal to treat a heart that’s beating too fast or too slow, such as implantable pacemakers and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD’s).

    Abnormal heart beats (cardiac arrhythmias) can cause fainting. An implantable loop recorder saves a recording of the heart rhythms before, during, and after a fainting episode. The recordings are then evaluated by a physician to help determine the cause of fainting.

    If your physician discovers an irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), he or she may use an electrical shock (cardioversion) to reset it. To perform a cardioversion, your physician will place electrodes on your chest which send an electrical shock straight to your heart. For most people, a cardioversion quickly restores a normal heart rhythm.

    To maintain your implantable device, Metro Heart & Vascular offers a pacemaker/ICD device clinic for follow-up evaluations to ensure that your unit is working correctly and effectively.
