Listening to the Beat of Your Heart

Did you know approximately 2.7 million Americans have an abnormal heart rhythm known as atrial fibrillation (AFib)?

AFib is a serious heart rhythm disorder that causes the heart's two upper chambers to contract very fast and irregularly.

As a recognized leader in state-of-the-art arrhythmia management, the multidisciplinary team of experts at Hoag’s Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart & Vascular Institute performs some of the most complex heart rhythm procedures available in the nation.
