IMPLANTABLE DEVICES



IMPLANTABLE DEVICES

 


Wouldn’t it be great to have a full time team of doctors, nurses and medical assistants accompanying you everywhere you go?

They could check your heart rhythms 24/7 – even when you sleep. And then, if they noticed something gone awry, wouldn’t it be great to get immediate service? A mild shock to put your heart back into perfect sinus rhythm. The way it’s supposed to be.

No – this is not science fiction. It’s the reality of implantable devices.
We are experts in clinically evaluating your exact needs, and then taking care of them. In certain instances, it might be necessary to “implant” an electrical monitor, just under the surface of your skin.
Every year doctors implant over 133,262 defibrillators.
It’s a common and successful procedure, and allows us here at Cardiac Arrhythmia Service to continually monitor the condition of your heart.

So no matter where you go.
No matter what you are doing.
We are there with you – watching, recording and helping you to maintain a normal life.

For pacemakers or defibrillators
Risks of procedure are mainly infection – if that occurs, the entire system must be removed, injury to the lung requiring placement of a chest tube for 1-2 days, injury to the heart muscle or lead dislodgement requiring repositioning. The risk of any of these is less than 1 percent.

SATISFIED CLIENTS


Cardiac Arrhythmia Services

We are sometimes referred to as the electricians of the heart. We treat all types of heart rhythm disorders: hearts that beat slowly, quickly or erratically. We evaluate patients with palpitations to help diagnose the etiology of palpitations and then cure the underlying problem. In addition to palpitations, shortness of breath, fatigue, anxiety, dizziness (syncope) are some other manifestations of arrhythmia.

Common arrhythmias that we deal with are atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) and ventricular tachycardia (VT). We usually try medication to treat arrhythmias but when medications are insufficient we may recommend an ablation procedure.

There are different types of ablation but they all aim at eliminating the source of the arrhythmia. Our practice is at the forefront of technology and we use the newest techniques and equipment available to provide the safest and most effective therapy to our patients. We implant and manage all types of pacemakers and defibrillators. We have one of the largest and most efficient remote monitoring programs in the state of Florida. Remote monitoring allows us to watch over and treat our patients in between their office visits. At Cardiac Arrhythmia Services we have 3 cardiac electrophysiologists, 2 physician assistants, 2 remote monitoring technicians, 3 nurses and a staff of 19 people who all work together on daily basis to ensure that our patients get the best care possible.
