Cardioversion

Cardioversion

This is performed to change or convert an irregular heart rhythm to a normal regular rhythm. Cardioversion sends a carefully timed and well-controlled electrical shock to the heart through the chest wall. The shock usually disrupts the abnormal stimulus or impulse that causes the abnormal rhythm and allows the heart’s normal rhythm to take over. At Beverly Hills Cardiology, our experienced team can help you through this process with ease.

PATIENT INSTRUCTIONS

  • Do not eat or drink anything after midnight the night before the exam.
  • Do not ingest any stimulants for 24 hours BEFORE the test. This includes coffee, tea, and cola drinks.
