Treatment of Arrhythmias

with Walid Saliba, MD and Oussama Wazni, MD

Description:

Irregular or abnormal heart beats, called arrhythmias, occur when there are abnormal electrical impulses in your heart, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly. Arrhythmias are very common and are often a mere annoyance. However, they can also be responsible for life-threatening medical emergencies that result in cardiac arrest and sudden death. The most common irregular heart rhythm is called Atrial fibrillation (AF or AFib) and involves the two upper chambers (atria) of the heart. Over 2 million Americans are affected by AFib and it is responsible for 15% of all strokes. Please join us to have your arrhythmia questions answered by Director of the Electrophysiology Lab, Walid Saliba, MD, and Director of the Outpatient Electrophysiology Department, Oussama Wazni, MD.
