With the increasing demand for services, TCAI doubled the size of its electrophysiology lab from two procedure suites to four, including new technology. With the new space and equipment, the level of training at TCAI has also increased significantly.

Heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) are problems that affect the electrical system, or "wiring," of the heart muscle. Heart arrhythmias are very common and millions of people will experience an abnormal heart rhythm during their lives.
