Treating common and unusual
heart rhythm disorders

A fast heart rate (in adults, more than 100 beats per minute) is called tachycardia. A slow heart rate (less than 60 beats per minute) is referred to as bradycardia.

In addition to treating these common conditions, our cardiac specialists use leading-edge technology to treat any form of arrhythmia that may be holding you back.

Types of arrhythmia treated:

  • Atrial fibrillation (AFib).
  • Atrial flutter (AFL).
  • Bradycardia, heart block and sick sinus syndrome (SSS).
  • Cardiac arrest due to arrhythmia.
  • Inherited arrhythmia syndromes.
  • Premature ventricular complexes (PVCs).
  • Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT).
  • Tachycardia.
  • Ventricular fibrillation (VF).
  • Ventricular tachycardia (VT).
  • Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome.

As a UCHealth patient, you are unique, and you deserve a treatment approach tailored to you.

Our customized treatments:

  • Ablation procedures
  • Arrhythmia management
  • Implantable cardioverter defibrillator
  • Lead extractions
  • Pacemakers
  • WATCHMAN™ device

The WATCHMAN device

The WATCHMAN™ device is a permanent, one-time implant designed to keep harmful blood clots from entering your bloodstream and potentially causing a stroke.

You may be a candidate for WATCHMAN™ if:

  • You have atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem (also known as non-valvular AFib).
  • You are on blood-thinning medication or have been recommended by your doctor to take blood-thinning medication.
  • You are looking for an alternative to long-term blood thinners.
