center for electrical therapy of heart failure

overview

At the Center for Electrical Therapy of Heart Failure at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center, we care for patients with symptomatic heart failure who have pacemakers and defibrillators, particularly biventricular/cardiac resynchronization devices. If not properly treated, heart failure can cause a stroke.

symptoms

If you have heart failure, you might have symptoms such as shortness of breath, tiredness, swelling or fluid retention in your legs or abnormal heart rhythms.

treatment options

Though a device like a pacemaker or defibrillator can help improve or eliminate heart failure symptoms, it may not be enough. 

You might also need:
 
  • Cardiac evaluation
  • Blood work
  • Imaging and/or reprogramming of your device

We make the process easier by eliminating the need to see multiple doctors at different hospitals or offices. Our center streamlines care, and lets us tailor your treatment for your needs in a single visit. We can educate you about heart failure and make sure your symptoms are addressed with your pacemaker or defibrillator.

Our goal is to help you feel better and return to your normal activity, all while staying out of the hospital and spending less time in doctors’ offices.
