Cardioversion

We use cardioversion to help restore a normal heart rhythm.

The warfarin clinic and cardioversion service will monitor your warfarin levels and when they are in range, the cardiac nurse will arrange to meet you to discuss the procedure.

How do you prepare for your appointment?

A day case procedure is where you come into hospital in the morning and go home the same afternoon or evening.

The cardiac nurse will discharge you home with a full explanation about the procedure and results. They will also arrange an outpatient appointment for you to see the heart specialist.

How does an external healthcare provider refer to the service?

Only doctors that specialise in problems with the heart (Cardiologists) can refer for this procedure.
