A pacemaker prevents the heart from beating too slowly. A pacemaker is a device made of a generator that sits under the skin connected to leads that go into the heart that prevents the heart from beating too slowly.
Implantable Loop Recorder
An implantable loop recorder is a small electrical device that is inserted under your skin that is able to continuously record your heart rhythm.
Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD)
An implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) is a device placed under the skin with leads that go into the heart that treats life-threatening fast cardiac arrhythmias (tachyarrythmias) with pacing and shocks.
Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy
Syncing the heart to improve its efficiency. Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy (CRT) uses a biventicular pacemaker or defibrillator to make sure that all parts of the heart are contracting at the optimal time to produce the best cardiac function.
Atrial Fibrillation Ablation
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is a chaotic heart rhythm that occurs due to erratic electrical behaviour originating from the pulmonary veins at the back of the left atrium or entry chamber of the heart.
Atrial Flutter Ablation
Atrial flutter (AFlutter) is a regular or irregular heart rhythm that occurs due to somewhat erratic electrical behaviour originating from the right atrium or right sided entry chamber of the heart. This may result in symptoms of dizziness, fatigue, breathlessness, chest pain or heart failure.
Electrophysiology Studies (EPS) and SVT Ablation
EPS determines the nature and origins of cardiac arrythmias and provides treatment options. EPS uses electrical catheters paced in the heart to determine the nature and origins of your cardiac arrythmias. Your doctor may recommend an EPS to determine your best treatment options.
Ventricular Tachycardia ablation
Ventricular tachycardia is a fast heart rhythm that occurs due to erratic electrical signals in the lower heart chamber or ventricle. VT ablation seeks to restore a regular heart rhythm.
Returning your heart back to normal rhythm. Sometimes your heart is in an abnormal rhythm such as atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter. This can lead to symptoms of chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness or blackouts
