Getting a Cardiac Resynchronisation Therapy Device

Cardiac resynchronisation therapy can help restore a normal coordinated heart rhythm by delivering pacing therapy to both sides of the heart. Pacing therapy consists of delivering a steady pattern of small electrical pulses to the heart muscle through the implanted leads.

Factors Your Doctor May Consider

Your doctor will use specific criteria to determine if you are a potential candidate for cardiac resynchronisation therapy.

Your Healthcare Team

Several types of doctors specialise in treating people with heart failure. A good first step is to see your primary care doctor.

Surgery: What to Expect

Your healthcare team will walk you through the surgical process, which includes important steps before, during, and following the procedure to implant a CRT device.
