An electrical cardioversion is a procedure used to convert an abnormally fast or irregular rhythm such as atrial fibrillation into a normal heart rhythm (sinus rhythm). The procedure is performed under general anaesthetic and can be done as a day case. A transoesophageal echocardiogram may be carried out before the procedure to exclude the presence of blood clots in the heart.
“My utmost priority is to provide the highest quality and most up-to-date cardiovascular care to all my patients. I aim to achieve this using a holistic approach in a personable and empathetic atmosphere, while taking into consideration each individual patient’s own wishes and hopes for their medical care.”
