Advanced Treatments for Heart Failure On-Demand Video
Our team of expert heart specialists talk about treatment options for heart failure.
At Sharp, we offer a full range of treatment options for patients with arrhythmias, or irregular heart beats. Our experienced team will help find the the best treatment plan to meet your needs.
An arrhythmia, or irregular heartbeat, occurs when there is a change in the heart's electrical impulses. If the impulses are too rapid or too slow, the abnormal rhythm causes the heart to pump blood less effectively.
A common condition associated with arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation (AFib), which occurs when electrical signals in the upper heart chamber (atrium) fire incorrectly. As a result, the heart beats out of rhythm — which can cause clots to form and travel to the brain, possibly blocking flow and causing a stroke.
Using advanced procedures and state-of-the-art technology, our compassionate team of cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, electrophysiologists and nurse practitioners provides the extraordinary level of care Sharp is known for.
At Sharp, we offer a range of treatments for atrial fibrillation (AFib), including minimally invasive and surgical techniques. These options can dramatically reduce dependence on medications and may even eliminate AFib entirely — allowing you to return to the activities you enjoy.
We offer AFib treatment at hospitals across San Diego.
