What is Cardiac Rhythm Management?

Cardiac rhythm management usually involves using devices and technologies to help improve the heart’s natural rhythm. Advancements in medical technology mean more availability of cardiac rhythm management systems and devices to improve clinical outcomes and lifespan.  As a leading provider of cardiac rhythm management Cambridge, Dr Begley helps patients find the right solution to manage their symptoms.

Modern devices, such as pacemakers, can dramatically reduce symptoms and help to improve patients’ overall quality of life.

Cardiac electrophysiology deals with assessing and treating heart rhythm problems. Disorders of the heart rhythm can cause a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Palpitations
  • Blackouts
  • Breathlessness
  • Chest Pains

Unfortunately, cardiac rhythm problems can lead to sudden death too.

Safe, effective cardiac rhythm management solutions help to manage the symptoms and can even help save lives.

What solutions can Dr Begley offer?

Dr Begley offers a range of effective cardiac rhythm management treatments for patients in and around Cambridge. The most common treatment options include:

Catheter Ablation

This minimally-invasive procedure removes or terminates a faulty electrical pathway from the hearts of patients experiencing cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, and supraventricular tachycardias.

Pacemakers and ICDs

These are two kinds of small electrical devices surgically implanted into the chest.  They can help manage the heart’s natural rhythm through electrical pulses.

Is cardiac rhythm management the right solution?

Heart rhythm disorders and abnormalities can be a symptom of many conditions.  Patients often present with various symptoms when the heart beats too fast (tachycardia) or too slow (bradycardia).

Anyone suffering from palpitations or blackouts should visit their GP urgently. Referral to a cardiologist is likely a result.  Once you have an appointment with a cardiologist, you can determine if cardiac rhythm management is the right solution for your symptoms. It can help with a range of conditions, including:

  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Premature ventricular contractions
