Cardioversion is a procedure that can restore a fast or irregular heartbeat to a normal rhythm. Cardioversion is done two ways: using an electrical procedure or using medicines. For the electrical procedure, your heart is given low-energy shocks to trigger a normal rhythm. You're temporarily put to sleep before the shocks are given. This type of cardioversion is done in a hospital as an outpatient procedure. Using medicines to correct arrhythmias also is a form of cardioversion, also usually done in the hospital.

If you have any questions, you can consult with Dr. Jimenez or Dr. Sanchez for an appointment.
