Treatment for abnormal heart rhythms

Duke Regional Hospital’s team of skilled experts is ready to treat all types of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias).

Arrhythmias may be caused by many different factors, including coronary artery disease, electrolyte imbalances in your blood, changes in your heart muscle, injury from a heart attack or heart surgery. Irregular heart rhythms can also occur in healthy hearts as well.

At Duke Regional, arrhythmia services include radiofrequency ablation, implantation of automated internal cardiac defibrillators (AICDs), pacemakers and biventricular AICDs to return your heartbeat to a normal rhythm.

A dedicated electrophysiology laboratory is available for cardiac electrophysiology procedures, which check the heart’s electric signals. These electric signals determine how fast your heart should beat. If your heart rate is too fast or too slow, we will test it to find out why this is happening.
