You are welcome to discuss CRM with Dr David Begley. CRM stands for Cardiac Rhythm Management. This is the investigation and treatment of heart rhythm abnormalities.
These abnormalities are known as Arrhythmias. These most often cause an awareness of the heart beating (palpitations). However, patients with arrhythmias may also have symptoms of fatigue, breathlessness, light-headedness or black-outs (syncope).
Dr Begley aims to quickly identify the cause of these worrying symptoms and provide reassurance or offer appropriate guided treatment.
Read on to find out more about cardiac rhythm management and the treatments available.
What is Cardiac Rhythmic Management?
Advances in medical technology in recent years have led to the increased availability of cardiac rhythmic management (CRM) systems. It has also resulted in the development of devices that can help to optimise long term clinical outcomes. As a leading provider of cardiac rhythm management, Dr Begley can help to find the right solution for a wide number of heart rhythm disorders.
Modern CRM devices, like Pacemakers, can dramatically reduce patient symptoms and help to improve overall quality of life.
The medical specialism of cardiac electrophysiology deals with the assessment and treatment of heart rhythm problems. Disorders of the heart rhythm can cause variety of symptoms. These include palpitations, blackouts, breathlessness and chest pains. Very rarely, but tragically, sudden death can also occur.
All of the above, can have a major impact on patients and their day to day lives so it important to be able to offer safe, effective CRM solutions.
Types of Cardiac Rhythmic Management
Dr Begley can utilise his many years of experience to provide you with the perfect solution for your own cardiac condition. He is a specialist in two key areas of treatment.
Catheter Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure. This procedure is used to remove or terminate faulty electrical pathways from sections of the heart. This is usually for patients who are prone to developing cardiac arrhythmias.
A Pacemaker is a small electrical device that is surgically implanted into the chest. This emits electrical impulses through the wires to your heart to prevent it from beating too slowly.
More information on the treatment can be found here.
