Welcome to Rideout Vascular, where we specialize in providing top-quality cardiovascular care to the Bakersfield community. In this section, we will focus on electrophysiology, a vital area within the field of cardiac health.
Electrophysiology is a branch of cardiology that deals with diagnosing and treating various heart rhythm disorders, also known as arrhythmias. These conditions can cause irregular heartbeats, palpitations, chest pain, and may even lead to more serious complications.
Our experienced electrophysiologists utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and techniques to identify and evaluate cardiovascular rhythm abnormalities. Through a comprehensive evaluation, we determine the underlying causes and severity of the arrhythmias.
Electrocardiograms (ECGs), echocardiograms, stress tests, and Holter monitors are commonly employed during the diagnostic process. These tests provide us with important information about the heart's electrical system, allowing us to make accurate diagnoses and develop appropriate treatment plans.
At Rideout Vascular, we offer a wide range of advanced treatment options for patients suffering from arrhythmias. Our goal is to improve your quality of life and reduce the risk of complications associated with irregular heart rhythms.
In some cases, medications can effectively manage arrhythmias. Our expert physicians carefully select the most suitable medications to regulate heart rhythms and minimize symptoms. We closely monitor your progress and make adjustments as needed to ensure optimal results.
Catheter ablation is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat certain types of arrhythmias. During this procedure, a thin tube (catheter) is threaded through a blood vessel to the heart. The catheter delivers controlled energy, such as radiofrequency or cryotherapy, to destroy the abnormal heart tissue causing the arrhythmia.
Our skilled electrophysiologists have extensive experience in performing catheter ablations, providing safe and effective treatment for patients with rhythm disorders.
For individuals with more complex or severe arrhythmias, implantable devices may be necessary. These devices include pacemakers, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices. Our team of experts will assess your specific condition and recommend the most appropriate device to optimize your heart's electrical function.
Recovery and Follow-Up Care
Following any electrophysiology procedure, proper recovery and ongoing care are essential. Our team will provide detailed instructions regarding post-procedural care, including medications, physical activity restrictions, and follow-up appointments. We are dedicated to supporting you throughout your recovery journey.
