Heart Rhythm & Arrhythmia Treatment Options
OHSU's Heart Rhythm and Arrhythmia experts work as a team to determine the best treatment option for your heart rhythm disorder. These treatment options include:
- Ablation (radiofrequency and epicardial)
This less invasive, innovative treatment sends radiofrequency signals via a catheter to your heart to prevent the abnormal signals that cause arrhythmia.
Pacemakers are a common solution to regulate an irregular heartbeat caused by a heart attack, age, or other factors.
If your heartbeat is irregular and abnormally fast, a defibrillator may be required which delivers a shock to the heart to slow the heartbeat to a normal rhythm.
