With advanced resources, including leading-edge technology our electrophysiologists follow a multidisciplinary approach to develop the most comprehensive treatment plan according to the patient’s medical needs. Services for cardiac arrhythmias treatment may include:
- Permanent Pacemaker: It is a small electronic device that is used to automatically monitor the patient’s heartbeat and regulates it by transmitting electrical impulses to stimulate the heart. It is surgically implanted below the collar bone and improves the heart’s rhythm and symptoms associated with arrhythmia by stimulating the heart when it is beating slowly.
- Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT): It is a special kind of pacemaker known as a biventricular pacemaker - that works by sending small electrical impulses through the leads attached to it, in order to keep the right and left ventricles pumping together, called AV synchrony. It is designed to help the ventricles contract normally and improve the heart’s rhythm and symptoms associated with arrhythmia or heart failure.
- Automatic Implantable Defibrillator (AICD): It is considered as a very advanced Pacemaker that is implanted into the patient’s chest. It continuously monitors the patient’s heartbeat and delivers precisely calibrated electrical shocks to correct the arrhythmia. It is a battery-powered device that helps in preventing the symptoms of sudden cardiac death.
We at the unit strive to offer advanced treatment for all types of arrhythmia, using the latest evidence-based technology and personalised heart rhythm disorder patient care to ensure each patient receives the most comprehensive diagnosis and treatment possible.
