Advanced Cardiovascular Care

Our Heart Rhythm Disorder Program

Almost everyone’s heart skips or flutters at one time or another; these mild, one-time palpitations are harmless. However, more than four million Americans have recurring arrhythmias—an irregularity in the heart’s natural rhythm. Those with arrhythmias should be under physician care.

Heart Rhythm Disorders We Treat

  • Atrial Fibrillation (A-fib)
  • Bradycardia, a very slow heartbeat
  • Tachycardia, a very fast heartbeat

Irregular Heartbeat Diagnosis

People who may have arrhythmias should receive a thorough cardiac examination, which may include one or more of the following tests:  

  • History and physical examination
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
  • Signal-averaged ECG
  • Electrophysiology (EP)
  • Echocardiography
  • Exercise stress testing
  • Tilt-table evaluation
  • Arrhythmia monitoring devices

Based on the findings, your physician may have you try different medications or recommend a procedure or device to treat your heart rhythm.

Arrhythmia Treatment

St. Luke’s Health’s team of arrhythmia specialists is skilled in treating some of the most challenging rhythm disorders facing physicians today. The right treatment for irregular heartbeat depends on each person’s condition and exact diagnosis. Treatment options range from drug therapy to implantable devices, radiofrequency ablation, and open-heart surgery.

We use state-of-the-art techniques and technologies to address the most complex cases of arrhythmia, including the Stereotaxis Gentle Touch™ Magnetic Navigation System and Micra Transcatheter Pacing System (the world’s smallest pacemaker), and offer access to clinical trials. In addition to providing high-quality patient care, we’re dedicated to innovating the devices and techniques used to detect, manage, and treat various heart rhythm disorders. This includes several ongoing collaborations in research and leading the development of the first wireless and battery-less miniature pacing chips.
