DC Cardioversion

This involves the use of an electric shock - direct current (DC) - to restore normal heart rhythm.

This procedure involves a short general anaesthetic during which an electric shock is passed across the chest to the heart with the aim of restoring normal heart rhythm.

This is suitable for various heart rhythms but mainly atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter.
