Cardioversion: During cardioversion, an EKG monitor is used to determine the precise moment at which a defibrillator should send an electrical shock to the heart. The goal is to normalize the electrical rhythm of the heart. Cardioversion can be effective for patients with rapid arrhythmias that cause atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia or atrial flutter.

At Galenia Hospital, an interventional cardiologist can implant the following:
  • Pacemaker: Galenia doctors can implant a small pacemaker under your skin to start or regulate a slow heartbeat. The pacemaker sends electrical signals to the heart. This procedure can be effective for patients with sinus bradycardia, sick sinus syndrome or heart block
