Serious heart rhythm disorders called arrhythmias, affect the lives of millions of people daily. Unfortunately, most treatments for these conditions are generic and one-size-fits-all, with mixed results.
But there’s hope.
We believe there is a better way to treat serious heart rhythm disorders such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. Using Abbott Electrophysiology’s technology, doctors can identify the sources of arrhythmias that are unique to each person. Now treatment can be tailored to your individual needs.
Find Your Source. Get Tailored Therapy. Get Your Rhythm Back.
The most common heart rhythm disorder, atrial fibrillation (AF, or afib) is a serious global public health problem which affects millions of people around the world.
If left untreated, AF doubles the risk of heart-related deaths and also increases stroke risk by up to 500%. Unfortunately, although it is such a serious health
problem, AF has historically been difficult to treat with an acceptable degree of success.
In response to this unaddressed need, Abbott, Inc. has developed a unique 3D analysis and mapping solution (the Abbott 3D Mapping System), which consists of the
RhythmView Workstation and FIRMap diagnostic catheter. The Abbott 3D Mapping System has been designed to enable physicians to view the electrical activity of the
heart, thereby supporting the diagnosis and patient-specific treatment planning for a variety of heart arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter,
atrial tachycardia, and ventricular tachycardia.
The Abbott 3D Mapping System received FDA clearance in 2013 and is now in routine use at several leading medical centers throughout the United States.
living with Afib.
Does atrial fibrillation control your life? Atrial fibrillation (AF or Afib) is a malfunction of the electrical system of the heart that causes it to beat irregularly. Call it the “chaos of an electrical storm.” If left untreated, Afib greatly increases your risk for heart-related complications including stroke or even death.
As unique as you are.
Arrhythmias are electrical, not just anatomical. This is why every patient needs to be treated individually. FIRM-guided therapy using the Topera® Rotor Mapping Solution is a patient-specific tool that enables physicians, for the very first time, the opportunity to identify the unique sources that sustain serious heart rhythm disorders. Doctors can use this information to tailor therapy for excellent long-term outcomes.
For the first time, the Topera Rotor Mapping Solution can see the eye of the storm. First, a panoramic view of your entire heart rhythm disorder is obtained. This view then comes into focus using Abbott Electrophysiology’s proprietary RhythmView® software – producing unparalleled clarity in identifying the source of your arrhythmia. Doctors can use this information as part of their treatment planning to then tailor therapy for their patient.
Talk with your physician about your Afib and reclaim your active life. Join the thousands of patients who got their rhythm back because of FIRM-guided therapy. A happy, healthy life is possible today.
