If you have a heart rhythm disorder and need a permanent cardiac device like a pacemaker or defibrillator implanted, Paulding’s cardiologists now offer these procedures close to home with qualified, compassionate providers who will take the time to get to know your needs.
Your care team will continue to support you after the device is implanted, too. Your electrophysiologist will ensure your device continues to work properly and check the battery life, and you’ll be able to work with our experts to create a personalized diet, exercise, lifestyle and medication plan to keep your heart in top shape.
Paulding also offers another solution for arrhythmia — catheter ablations. During this procedure, a small tube is inserted into a blood vessel, then guided to the heart to scar areas of tissue that are causing the abnormal heart rhythm. The scars block the electrical impulses that cause the abnormal rhythm.
