A full range of interventional options is available at RWJBarnabas Health to treat heart attack, congenital heart defects, arrhythmia, heart failure, atrial fibrillation and other heart disease. For patients faced with a cardiac crisis, direct admission of emergency cases to our cardiac catheterization labs allow an average door-to-balloon time well below the 90 minute national benchmark. Our patients benefit from the most advanced tools for diagnostic and therapeutic intervention. Our electrophysiology team offers implantations of the newest generation cardioverter-defibrillators. These are capable of repacing the heart and remotely monitoring the patient's status around the clock. For more information on conditions and treatments, please visit our health library.
