Heart Failure Therapy

Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) heart devices help the lower chambers of the heart to beat in a more coordinated fashion, so that blood pumps more efficiently to the body. Some CRT devices can also treat dangerously fast heart rhythms by delivering a life-saving shock to restore the heart to a more normal rate.

For Heart Failure

Heart failure occurs when your heart isn't pumping enough blood to meet your body's needs. Early signs may include swollen feet and legs or a lack of energy. Our cardiac resynchronisation therapy heart devices send tiny electrical pulses to the lower chambers of your heart, helping it pump blood more efficiently.
