Abnormal Heart Rhythm

Product Description text

In a healthy individual, the sinoatrial node generates approximately 60–100 beats per minute when at rest1,2 In a patient with AF at rest, the atria generate about 600 impulses per minute, resulting in 80–120 beats per minute.3,4,5

Product Title Text

Atrial Fibrillation Catheter Ablation​

Product Description text

Catheter Ablation is a procedure performed by an electropphysiologist, that uses radio frequency energy, to ablate a small area of arrhythmic heart tissue, to prevent the conduction of abnormal electric impulses which cause rapid and irregular heartbeats.​
