If you suffer repeated bouts of irregular heartbeats, we may recommend implanting a device to regulate your heartbeats.

Overview

Your heart has a natural electrical system that causes rhythmic contractions in your cardiac muscles, which pump blood throughout your body. Cardiologists and surgeons may decide to insert a device that can monitor your heartbeat and correct irregular rhythms when they occur. The implantation is minor surgery that may require only a one to two-day stay in the hospital.
