Heart Rhythm Services
In order to function properly, the heart needs to beat at the right pace. When the heart beats too slow, too fast, or at an irregular pattern, it is known as an arrhythmia. With 18 cardiology offices in Northern New Jersey, Heart & Vascular Associates of Northern Jersey has the resources to provide patients with individualized treatment to diagnose and treat the issue causing an arrhythmia.
Common Heart Rhythm Disorders
When the brain does not receive a sufficient amount of blood flow from the heart, fainting may occur. It most often occurs in patients who are experiencing hypotension, otherwise known as low blood pressure.
When Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) occurs, the electrical impulses upper chambers of the heart are malfunctioning and causing the heart to be much more rapidly than normal; often between 100 & 300 bpm.
Often causing a heartbeat that is too rapid, Atrial Fibrillation occurs when the two upper chambers of the heart beat out of coordination. This can lead to heart failure, stroke, or other life-threatening issues.
Ventricular tachycardia is similar to SVT, in that it causes the heart to beat between 100 & 300 bpm, but this issue is caused by abnormal electrical signals that occur in the lower chambers of the heart.
