Heart Devices for Abnormal Heart Rhythms
Every minute, your heart contracts and dilates 60 to 100 times depending on your age and overall health. Your heartbeat is started and regulated by a natural electrical system that coordinates the contraction between pumping blood through your heart and out to the rest of your body.
When your heart becomes unable to start a heartbeat or naturally pace your heart rhythm, your body may not get enough blood because of your heart’s pumping ability.
A ProMedica electrophysiologist in the Toledo area can help you determine whether a heart device is appropriate to treat an abnormal heart rhythm.
There are two types of heart devices: pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD).
