What is CRM?
Cardiac rhythm management is the study of abnormal heart rhythms and conditions that are treatable with implantable devices. These devices can perform a variety of diagnostic, pacing and defibrillation functions in order to save and improve patients lives.
What is EP?
Cardiac electrophysiology studies the assessment and treatment of abnormally fast heart rhythms originating from the heart’s conduction system. EP procedures utilize novel, minimally invasive technologies that often achieve curative results for patients.
Cardiac Function & Interventional Technology is a part of the College of Allied Health.
