The Cardiac Rhythm Management Program at Morristown Medical Center cares for patients who have had or may be at risk for heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias), including those who have been resuscitated from cardiac arrest, have irregular, premature or rapid heartbeats, or experience fainting episodes. Our patients also include individuals who may be at risk of sudden cardiac arrest, are in need of a pacemaker or automatic defibrillator, or have potential genetic links to heart rhythm problems. Some patients with congestive heart failure benefit from implanted devices that strengthen the heart's pumping ability (cardiac resynchronization devices).
The cardiac rhythm management team performs comprehensive electrophysiology studies and radiofrequency ablations for supraventricular and ventricular tachycardias, as well as for atrial fibrillation. We also perform pacemaker and defibrillator implantations, in addition to tilt table testing.
Psychological care is just as important as physical care, and our doctors carefully consider what’s best for each patient's individual needs when they develop a treatment plan.
