Heart Rhythm Disorders Program

doctor and patientHeart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) are abnormal heartbeats that cause the heart to beat too fast (tachycardias), too slow (bradycardias) or irregularly. These disorders are caused by a problem with the heart’s electrical system, which stimulates the heart to squeeze and relax. Although heart rhythm disorders sometimes occur in a healthy heart and have minimal consequences, they can also be a sign of a more serious problem.

The Heart Rhythm Disorders Program at RWJBarnabas Health provides innovative, multi-specialty care for patients with irregular heart rhythms, heart palpitations and rapid heartbeats. From evaluation to treatment, this unique program delivers the best possible outcomes for each and every patient. Available at all of our 11 hospitals, our program is able to offer patients comprehensive and compassionate care.
