Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) uses a specialized pacemaker to re-coordinate the action of the right and the left side of the heart (the ventricles), making them beat at the same time in patients with heart failure. When the work of both sides of the heart is coordinated, the heart’s efficiency increases and the amount of work it takes for the heart to pump blood is reduced. This helps to improve the heart’s efficiency for patients living with Congestive Heart Failure.
After your CRT is inserted, you will be referred to our Pacemaker Device Clinic for follow up monitoring and care. Click here to learn more about our Cardiac Clinics, including our Pacemaker Device Clinic.
