This is a procedure that returns an irregularly beating heart (arrhythmia) to a normal (sinus) rhythm by delivering a controlled electrical impulse to the heart.

Under the direction of a cardiologist, the Backus Cardiac Catheterization Lab performs various tests that can evaluate the anatomy and function of your heart. Utilizing special x-ray and imaging equipment the cardiologist and the cath lab certified staff provide the supportive care necessary for diagnostic procedures, such as left and right heart cardiac catheterizations, transesophageal echocardiograms, electrical cardioversions, insertions of pacemakers and/or automated implantable cardioverter defibrillators (AICD’s), and generator changes.
