Electrophysiology and Cardiac Arrhythmias Lawrence + Memorial (L+M) heart rhythm specialists care for patients with irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias), heart palpitations and slow and rapid heart rhythms. Our cardiac electrophysiologists treat patients with all types of heart rhythm disorders including: Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy Atrial fibrillation Atrial flutter Bradycardia Brugada syndrome Long QT syndrome Premature atrial and ventricular beats Sick sinus syndrome Supraventricular tachycardia Syncope Ventricular arrhythmias Ventricular tachycardia and fibrillation Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome Available Treatments: Antiarrhythmic medications Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) for congestive heart failure Electrical cardioversion Defibrillator implantation (implantable cardioverter defibrillator - ICD) Pacemaker implantation Loop recorder insertion Advanced technology for heart rhythm monitoring includes a very small monitor that is injected under the chest skin and, over an extended period, monitors every heartbeat 24/7. Information received from the monitor, including arrhythmias that may be sporadic and intermittent, is automatically and wirelessly transmitted to the patient’s physician. This type of device vs. a wearable monitor, may be an option. Procedures Performed at Yale New Haven Hospital As part of Yale New Haven Health, patients have access to these procedures at Yale New Haven Hospital: catheter ablations for arrhythmias; left atrial appendage occlusion device implantation (i.e., Watchman™ device); and laser lead extractions. Clinical Trials Patients may also be eligible to participate in clinical trials related to electrophysiology and cardiac arrhythmias.
