Heart, an important part of the human body may sometimes malfunction and pump abnormally i.e. faces the problems of arrhythmia. It means that either the heart pumps too fast (tachycardia), too slow (bradycardia) or in an irregular pattern (fibrillation). These conditions prevent the proper circulation of blood from your heart and brain.
Cardioversion is the most common medical procedure used to shock the heart and restores its rhythm back to normal. In this procedure, the shocks are sent to the heart using electrodes placed on the patient's chest. This disease can be treated with medication too. Maximum patients who suffer from abnormal heartbeats problem i.e. arrhythmias undergo this procedure either have atrial flutter or atrial fibrillation. Cardioversion is a scheduled process done in the EP lab under a skilled team of well-trained doctors, nurses, and technologists. Sometimes it is also performed in emergency situations. In most of the cases, the cardioversion procedure quickly restores a normal heart rhythm in patients.
