Know More About Surgery

  • Arrhythmia

  • Heart attack
  • Fainting

The diagnostic methods that may be carried out before a Cardioversion treatment are:

  • Blood tests
  • ECG
  • Medical History

 

With an IV line, anesthesia is given after which electrodes are placed on the chest and most probably on the back. The cardioversion machine is attached to these electrodes. This machine records the heart's activity, and when necessary the doctor sends one or more low energy shocks to restore the normal rhythm.
