The Heart Rhythm Disorders Program at the Brigham and Women's Hospital Heart & Vascular Center is known worldwide for our expertise in evaluating and treating all types of abnormal heart rhythms. We offer our patients expert comprehensive, personalized care — from diagnosis and treatment to follow-up.
Some conditions we treat include:
Supraventricular arrhythmias are tachycardias (fast heartbeats) that start in the atria or atrioventricular (AV) node, including:
Ventricular arrhythmias begin in the ventricles, the heart's lower chambers, and often require immediate medical care. In addition to ventricular tachycardia, a fast, irregular beating of the ventricles, another type of ventricular arrhythmia is ventricular fibrillation, when electrical signals make the ventricles quiver instead of pumping normally.
Bradycardia is an abnormally slow heartbeat caused by an abnormality in the heart's electrical pumping system. This can cause fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness, and fainting. In most cases, bradycardia only needs to be treated if it is causing symptoms.
