Did you know that your body has its own electrical system? Electrical impulses control the contractions of your heart. When the electrical system is disrupted, the resultant condition is known as an arrhythmia. Patients with arrhythmia need specialized care from a multidisciplinary team of experts, which is why Northside Hospital has established the A-Fib and Heart Rhythm Center.
Patients with arrhythmias can visit our state-of-the-art electrophysiology (EP) lab for a comprehensive evaluation of heart rhythms. Our EP lab features the latest technology, including an advanced video monitoring system. After undergoing a cardiac ablation study, EP study for arrhythmia detection, or pacemaker implantation or repair, patients can rest comfortably in one of our private recovery rooms. When you meet with our arrhythmia specialists, be sure to ask about our Arctic Front CryoAblation Catheter System, which is an innovative treatment option for patients who did not benefit from previous device implantation or drug therapy.
