Cardiac resynchronisation therapy is a treatment to help the heart pump blood more efficiently by resynchronizing the contractions of the heart’s chambers. This is done by implanting a cardiac resynchronisation device in the chest with leads attaching to the heart chambers.
This treatment is useful for patients with
heart failure. Patients with
heart failure often have weakened heart muscles, which ventricles do not contract at the same time, resulting in reduced efficiency of the pump.
Electrical signals are emitted through the cardiac resynchronisation device, causing the heart to beat in a more organized and efficient manner. This treatment aims to improve the heart’s pump function; hence reducing symptoms of
heart failure and risk of
heart failure complications.
