Care for Abnormal Heart Rhythms

Heart Conduction System

The intrinsic conduction system sets the basic rhythm of the beating heart by generating impulses which stimulate the heart to contract.

Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute's team of cardiac electrophysiologists focus on the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heart rhythms, called arrhythmias. Arrhythmias are caused by abnormalities in the hearts electrical system. The heartbeat may be too slow or too fast; it may remain steady or become chaotic. While some arrhythmias can be life threatening, most can be managed with proper treatment.

Our specialists review complex cases to determine and deliver the best course of treatment. Follow-up and maintenance are coordinated with the primary care physicians to uniquely meet each patient's changing needs. To learn more, call 704-373-0212.

Device Clinic

Patients with a heart rhythm device require regular follow-up and monitoring. Sanger Heart & Vascular Institute’s Device Clinic offers ongoing device care at most office locations. The Device Clinic is staffed by specially-trained registered nurses and advanced care professionals with extensive expertise in device management.

During a device clinic visit, the clinical team will evaluate the device to make sure it is performing at the optimal level by checking the battery, evaluating the function of the leads going into the heart, and adjusting the programming.

Support Groups

Our support groups are open to all patients with a cardiac device and their families. The meetings are co-sponsored with leading device manufacturers to offer resources and lifestyle tips. Groups are offered in the Charlotte and Shelby, NC areas. Learn more about the Pacemaker/ICD support group and what it has to offer, and register online.
