Hemet Global Medical Center provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient cardiology care services, including a Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory. Comprehensive care includes a thorough assessment, diagnosis, treatment plan, and intervention, in addition to continued evaluation to ensure progress is on track. This process often begins with non-invasive testing. Additionally, Hemet Global Medical Center’s cardiology care services include treatment for atrial fibrillation, as well as cardiac arrhythmia.
Assessment may begin with non-invasive imaging procedures such as a transthoracic echocardiogram, which obtains still or moving images of internal parts of the heart.
Atrial fibrillation is an irregular and often rapid heart rate that occurs when the upper chambers of the heart are no longer in coordination with the lower chambers. There are a variety of treatments for atrial fibrillation, including medication and cardiac catheterization.
