New Technology and Innovative Procedures
Our ability to make real-time 3-D models of the heart helps us determine the best treatment options such as medications, surgical procedures, or devices such as defibrillators or pacemakers with remote monitoring by specialized staff.
When you visit with the electrophysiologist, they will determine the best treatment options. This may include medications, state-of-the-art surgical procedures or implanted devices such as defibrillators and pacemakers. Our team of specialists utilize a 3D mapping system to determine best avenues for your individualized treatment. For added convenience, remote electrophysiology consultations are available to select Nebraska communities.
For added convenience, remote electrophysiology consultations via telehealth are available to select Nebraska communities. Telehealth services utilizes video conferencing that enables our electrophysiologists to provide consults and/or advise the local cardiologist in making decisions about the care provided to patients. A telehealth service means that a visit with the cardiologist at the distant site will happen by using special audiovisual equipment. This allows the patient to be seen in the local clinic without traveling a distance to see the specialist.
Atrial Fibrillation Center of Excellence
Atrial fibrillation (Afib) is a serious condition affecting millions of Americans. It is a complex, clinical problem with a variety of treatment approaches. The Nebraska Heart Institute is committed to serving each of our patients on a personal level by providing the proper treatment on an individual basis.
Arrhythmia and Device Clinic
Arrhythmias are another name for abnormal heart rhythms. They can slow down the blood flow the body requires, both in the heart and throughout the body’s organs. Arrhythmias can cause dizziness, palpitations, fainting, and, in some cases, a serious condition may exist. The Arrhythmia and Device Clinic of the Nebraska Heart Institute specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of patients with arrhythmias.
The Nebraska Heart Institute’s Outpatient Anticoagulation Clinic provides education, blood testing, and dosing instructions for patients taking anticoagulants (blood thinners). The clinic utilizes a “finger-stick” blood draw that provides lab results within seconds. Our team of experts includes specially trained nurses, advanced practice clinicians, and physicians who closely monitor and manage your medications. Our mission is to provide our patients continued monitoring of their anticoagulation treatment to ensure desired results and minimize adverse events. We are committed to providing quality clinical and educational services.
