Other Heart Rhythms and Mitral Valve Replacement

Other Heart Rhythms and Mitral Valve Replacement

In rare cases, an abnormal rhythm can develop that creates an immediate risk. Because of this risk, instruments and medications will be close at hand to treat these rhythms, and your healthcare providers have advanced training for these situations.
 
Depending on the heart irregularity, your doctor may temporarily or permanently place a pacemaker or defibrillator into your heart. These instruments are able to sense abnormal heart rhythms and act to correct them. They are used if you have developed (or are at risk of developing) a heart rhythm that can cause serious consequences. In rare cases, an abnormal rhythm can lead to death.
