    • Common investigations include Electrocardiograms (ECG) and Holter Monitoring.
  • Pacemakers & Defibrillators:

    • Implantable devices used to treat a wide range of arrhythmias or heartbeat irregularities.
    • Pacemakers correct slow heartbeats, while Defibrillators are used for fast heartbeats.
