  • Cardiac resynchronization Therapy (CRT) [English] Public

    Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a small electronic device used to treat heart failure. It delivers tiny amounts of electrical impulses to the heart causing both ventricles to pump together in a coordinated way. There are 2 types of these devices: a CRT pacemaker (CRT-P) and a CRT defibrillator (CRT-D). Both can send an electrical impulse to your heart, triggering a heartbeat when needed. A CRT-D can also deliver a life-saving shock to return the heart rhythm back to normal. (English)
