What Is a Pacemaker? A pacemaker is a small device that’s placed in the chest to help treat abnormally slow heart rhythms. This device uses electrical pulses to prompt the heart to beat at a normal rate. Pacemakers are used to treat bradyarrhythmias.  Arrhythmias are problems with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. During […]

Electrophysiology Study An EP Study is a specialized procedure conducted by a trained cardiac specialist, the Cardiac Electrophysiologist. In this procedure, one or more thin, flexible wires, called catheters are inserted into a blood vessel (usually the groin) and guided into the heart. Each catheter has two or more electrodes to measure the heart’s electrical […]

Arrhythmias Arrhythmias are disturbances in the normal rhythmic beating of the heart, causing it to beat too slow (bradycardia) or too fast (tachycardia). These disorders are caused by a problem with the heart’s electrical system involving transmission of electrical signals through the heart muscle via specialized networks which stimulate the heart to squeeze and relax. […]

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) is used to treat the symptoms and other complications associated with heart failure (HF). HF is a prevalent disease in which the pumping action of the heart is affected because the heart does not contract or relax properly. CRT is administered using a pacemaker, called a CRT-P, or an implantable cardioverter […]
