The heart’s electrical system is a network of specialized cells that generate and distribute electrical signals to make the chambers of your heart squeeze in a specific order and function properly. Experts from Capital Health’s Cardiac Electrophysiology program diagnose and treat irregular heartbeats (arrhythmia) and other disturbances of the heart rhythm caused by faulty electrical signals. Our team of highly trained physicians uses the latest technology to help patients stay on the path to better health, including minimally invasive options that result in less pain, shorter hospital stays, and less risk for complications.
We work closely with the general cardiologists, interventional cardiologists and cardiac surgeons who use a full array of invasive and noninvasive testing to assure an accurate diagnosis. This allows the team to formulate a personalized plan of care and target the best possible outcome for our patients.
Although symptoms are not always present, people with a heart arrhythmia may experience chest pain, shortness of breath, a racing or slow heartbeat, sweating, fatigue, dizziness/fainting, or anxiety. If you or someone you know is having these symptoms, seek immediate help by calling 9-1-1.
