Heart rhythm disorders, such as A-fib (atrial fibrillation), can cause fatigue, dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath and chest pain.
For people experiencing these symptoms, heart rhythm disorders can be debilitating, causing them to avoid activities they used to enjoy.
If you would like to learn more about heart rhythm disorders and the effective new treatments available to correct them, join electrophysiologist Jeff Hsing, MD
, for a free seminar on June 11, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., in conference rooms A and B at Good Sam.
Hsing, an electrophysiologist with Samaritan Heart & Vascular Institute’s Heart Rhythm Center
, will share information on how heart rhythm disorders are diagnosed, the kinds of tests used during diagnosis, and how these disorders can be treated with a procedure known as catheter ablation.
“This is an especially gratifying field of medicine, because through electrophysiology many times we can eliminate symptoms completely, restoring patients to health and allowing them to resume all kinds of activities,” said Hsing.
Heart healthy refreshments will be provided at the seminar, and registration is required, as space is limited.
, call 541-768-4887 or toll free at 1-855-873-0647 to register.
This seminar is a part of Samaritan Health Services’ monthly seminar series, Healthy Minds, Healthy Bodies. The seminars are held at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center on the second Tuesday of each month, from 6 to 7:30 p.m., and feature a variety of health topics.
