Doctors at NYU Langone’s Heart Rhythm Center provide support during and after treatment for ventricular arrhythmias. This includes information about lifestyle changes to help prevent arrhythmias and the monitoring of an implantable cardioverter defibrillator.
Our team of cardiac device management specialists at the Heart Rhythm Center provide ongoing monitoring to people with implanted cardioverter defibrillators. Monitoring takes place in our offices or via telephone lines, cellular networks, or the internet. Our specialists identify any problems, including failing batteries or faulty leads that need replacement, and contact you, so you can make arrangements to see your doctor for any needed treatment.
Recreational drug use raises a person’s risk of ventricular arrhythmia. If you need help stopping the use of drugs such as cocaine, our doctors can help you overcome addiction.
Living with a ventricular arrhythmia can be stressful. Your doctor can refer you to a social worker or a psychologist for one-on-one counseling or group therapy.
Integrative therapies are designed to reduce stress and improve your wellbeing. They include acupuncture, massage therapy, and tai chi.
