Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)

Patients with heart failure and arrhythmia may be candidates for Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT), which is used to improve the heart's rhythm and symptoms associated with arrhythmia.

In patients approved for CRT, a half-dollar sized pacemaker is implanted, usually just below the collarbone. Wires connected to the device monitor the heart rate to detect heart rate irregularities and emit tiny pulses of electricity to correct them, “resynchronizing” the heart.

For more information, call the Heart Clinic at (706) 845-3274.
