Treating Heart Arrhythmia at Allegheny Health Network
A heart arrhythmia is an irregular or abnormal heartbeat. It occurs when your heart’s electrical impulses that synchronize your heartbeat don’t work properly, and your heart starts to beat too quickly, slowly or erratically.
For many, an arrhythmia feels like a fluttering or racing heart and is generally harmless. But for others, a heart arrhythmia indicates more serious, potentially life-threatening problems such as stroke and heart failure.
The Cardiovascular Institute’s vastly experienced physicians approach cardiac rhythm management with progressive medicines and therapies that gets your heart beating right.
