Arrhythmia Center

The Arrhythmia Center at Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast is located between the Cardiovascular Intermediate Care Unit (CVIMC) and the Progressive Coronary Care Unit (PCCU). Comprised mainly of certified monitor technicians, arrhythmia center staff is responsible for 24 hour monitoring of cardiac patients in seven main areas and interpreting many different rhythms: the chest pain evaluation unit; progressive coronary care unit; cardiovascular intermediate care unit; internal pulmonary unit; the observation unit for medical and family medicine; post-surgical unit; patients with remote telemetry.

Monitor technicians are responsible for notifying registered nurses immediately of rhythm changes or critical rhythms. Monitor technicians are certified to read, interpret and log all monitor strips for each patient located on various units.

Specialized services include King of Hearts, a device that monitors a patient's heart rhythm while allowing the patient freedom to leave the hospital. King of Hearts is a monitoring device placed on patients to catch irregular and critical rhythms while the patient is at home. Patients are responsible for transmitting rhythms to the arrhythmia center while registered nurses and physicians are responsible for interpreting the rhythms transmitted.
