Bradycardia (Slow Heartbeat)

Bradycardia means your heart rhythm is slow or irregular. It can cause dizziness or shortness of breath during normal activities or light exercise. A pacemaker can regulate your heart's rhythm and get you back in the swing of your normal pursuits.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Sudden cardiac arrest occurs when your heart beats so fast it quivers instead of pumping blood to the body and brain. Untreated, it can lead to death in minutes. If you are at risk, an implantable defibrillator can treat dangerously fast heart rhythms and provide ongoing protection against sudden cardiac death.

Tachycardia (Fast Heartbeat)

If you have tachycardia, your heart may beat up to 400 times per minute. This can cause dizziness, lightheadedness, or a fluttering in the chest. An implantable cardioverter defibrillator continuously monitors your heart and delivers life-saving therapies to treat dangerously fast heart rhythms.

Heart Failure

Heart failure occurs when your heart isn’t pumping enough blood to meet your body’s needs. As a result, fluid may build up in the legs, lungs, and in other tissues throughout the body. A cardiac resynchronization heart device sends tiny electrical pulses to the lower chambers of your heart so it can pump blood more efficiently.
