Atrial Fibrillation Program
The Orlando Health Heart Institute uses the most advanced technology and procedures in Central Florida to treat atrial fibrillation.
Leading Treatments for Atrial Fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is the most common heart arrhythmia. It occurs when rapid, disorganized electrical signals cause the heart's two upper chambers (the atria) to contract very fast and irregularly. The blood then pools in the atria instead of being pumped completely into the heart's two lower chambers. As a result, the heart's upper and lower chambers don't work together as they should.
Due to the possibility of atrial fibrillation causing a stroke or heart attack, it’s crucial to recognize and diagnose any indications of immediately. Our team of cardiology specialists will use the most innovative technology and advanced methods available to identify and treat your AFib.
Orlando Health Medical Center is the only hospital in Central Florida, and one of only two hospitals in the state of Florida, to have full accreditation from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care for its Atrial Fibrillation Program. Hospitals that receive SCPC accreditation employ an evidence-based, protocol-driven and systematic approach to patient management.
The Atrial Fibrillation Program's team approach allows for a quick diagnosis and treatment plan for patients with AFib, using the most innovative technology available, including cryoenergy balloon catheter procedures, a hybrid (joint catheter and surgical) procedure, and the Watchman procedure to treat atrial fibrillation.
