Cardioversion is a safe and effective treatment option for an abnormal heart rhythm called ‘atrial fibrillation’.
What is Cardioversion?
Because no two people are the same.
Who would say no to better care?
At GenesisCare, your treatment is only undertaken by trained cardiologists whose primary focus is your well-being. Complications of cardioversion are uncommon.
The main risk is embolisation. This is where a blood clot that has naturally formed in the heart moves to other parts of the body where it can cause complications. Your doctor can take steps to minimise this risk, such as prescribing blood thinning medication before the procedure. It is very important that you inform your treating cardiologist if, for some reason, you have not taken your blood thinning medication as prescribed as this affects the safety of the procedure. Should any complications occur, emergency equipment is readily available.
