Description

It is a medical procedure performed to restore abnormal heartbeat of the patient to a normal rhythm. An irregular or fast heartbeat is termed as arrhythmia which makes your heart unable to pump enough blood to your body. In this case, the patient may succumb to heart attack, stroke or an unexpected cardiac arrest.  

Indication

Your doctor may recommend cardioversion under the following conditions:
• If you’re suffering from arrhythmia which is causing irregularities on the heart function
• Its symptoms include shortness of breath, dizziness, chest discomfort or excessive fatigue 
 

Pre-Procedure
  • Usually, drinks and food are not allowed for nearly 12 hours before the procedure
  • Since you’re exposed to the formation of dangerous blood clots, the doctor may prescribe anti-clotting drug for a few weeks before and even after the medical treatment.
  • The doctor may put you through transesophageal echocardiogram where a thin flexible tube called catheter conjoined with a transducer is put down into your throat leading to the esophagus, which connects your mouth to your stomach. It is transducer that helps the doctor in taking more vivid images of your heart to check for blood clots.
     
During-Procedure

The procedure of cardioversion is performed in a specially equipped intensive care unit or an emergency department. Your heart rate, rhythm, breathing rate, oxygen level and blood pressure are examined. You will be given a heavy sedation as the shock can be very painful.

Following that, the doctor or nurse will put paddles or electrode patches onto your chest – one patch close to the right upper chest and the other one is placed either on the back or lower left chest. Then a stream of electric current is passed through these patches; most of which is absorbed by the chest and some is channeled to the heart.

You are likely to come back to the conscious state 5-10 minutes after the procedure after the effect of sedation subsides.

Post-Procedure

After the procedure, the team of health care closely monitors you for any signs of complications.  You may still be in a semi-conscious state because of the effect of drug so you’ll need someone who can drive you home.

Besides, there may be some soreness or redness on your chest where the paddles were placed which will disappear within a few days.    

In addition to these, your doctor may ask you to:
• Maintain your body weight and eat light and healthy
• Quit smoking
• Avoid or limit the intake of caffeine
• Avoid heavy medications that contain  stimulants that may set off a rapid heartbeat
 

Risk and Complication

• Sedative drugs given to you before the procedure so that you don’t feel pain, but it can cause pneumonia or difficulty in breathing
• Damage to the heart tissues
• Skin burning sensation or pain due to shocks given during the procedure

Cost:
The procedure usually costs from 3-4 lakh rupees.
