Cardiac Arrhythmia Treatment

Lee Health: South West Florida's Trusted Heart Experts on Heart Rhythm

Lee Health's cardiologists are here to help you understand and treat cardiac arrhythmia. Our experts help you manage and treat complications related to heart rhythms so you can live your best heart-healthy life.

What is Arrhythmia?

Your heart has a natural rhythm. But when you have an arrhythmia, or heart rhythm disorder, that natural rhythm is disturbed. Your heart may beat too fast or too slow, or there may be some other irregularity. Abnormal electrical activity in the heart usually causes these disorders.

Most common symptoms of arrhythmias:

  • Palpitations
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • Feeling that your heart skips beats
  • Fainting
  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Discomfort in your chest
  • Fatigue or weakness

How is arrhythmia treated?

  • Remote Monitoring: Advanced technology helps us monitor your heart's activity while you go about your daily activities.
  • Medication: For many patients, medications may be all you need to control a heart rhythm disorder.
  • Atrial fibrillation ablation: In an ablation, we thread a thin catheter through a blood vessel in the thigh and up to the heart. Abnormal electrical activity in the heart is blocked, or "ablated," with high-frequency electrical energy. After ablation, many patients never experience arrhythmia symptoms again.
  • Implantable cardiac defibrillators: Certain heart rhythm disorders put patients at risk of their hearts suddenly stopping. An implantable defibrillator can reset the heart's rhythm if this happens.
  • Ventricular tachycardia ablation: A VT ablation helps patients who suffer from fast heartbeats that cannot be managed with medication.
  • Pacemakers: If you suffer from bradycardia, or a heartbeat that is too slow, a pacemaker can help your heart maintain a normal heart rate.
