Normally, your heart beats in a regular, even pattern. Heart rhythm problems (known as heart arrhythmias) occur when the electrical pulses in your heart that coordinate your heartbeats don't work properly, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slow or irregularly.
Some people may be born with an abnormal heart rhythm, while others may develop this with age. Whatever the cause, we can help.
From diagnosis to treatment to follow-up care, the Heart Rhythm Center at the Ralph Hull Regional Heart Center in Corvallis provides advanced electrophysiology therapy for heart rhythm problems. Electrophysiology is the cardiology specialty that diagnoses and treats heart rhythm problems and the physician who provides this care is known as an electrophysiologist.
With state-of-the-art web-based systems and outreach clinics in Albany, Lebanon, Lincoln City and Toledo you can rest assured that quality follow-up care is offered close to home.
At Samaritan Heart & Vascular Institute, you can count on friendly service, clinical expertise and cutting-edge technology, all geared toward getting your heart back to a healthy rhythm.
