Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy
Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is used to help improve the heart’s rhythm and the symptoms associated with an irregular heartbeat. CRT is often used in patients with heart failure. In this procedure, a small pacemaker is implanted below the collarbone that can detect heart rate irregularities and emit tiny pulses of electricity to correct them.
CRT can be used to treat arrhythmia and heart failure.
