Arrhythmia Surgery Photo
What is an arrhythmia?
Arrhythmias are disorders of your heart’s electrical system, which means there is a change in the regular beat of your heart. This can be as a result of the conduction pathway being damaged or blocked, or because an extra pathway is present. The heart may beat too quickly (tachycardia), or too slowly (bradycardia) or irregularly, all of which may affect the heart’s ability to pump blood around the body. These abnormal heart beats are known as arrhythmia. An arrhythmia may occur at any age, and are most often a nuisance rather than a serious problem.
How long will I be in hospital?
Most arrhythmia treatments can be done as a day case or with one night in hospital.
Will I be awake? Will I feel pain?
You will be made as comfortable as possible, but you will not be under general anesthesia. You will be in what is considered “twilight sleep” and you will be dozing off and on. You probably won’t remember much from the procedure.
