Heart Rhythm Disorders: Impact on Our Daily Lives

June 23, 2022 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm CST

Heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) affect millions of people worldwide. At the Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation®, we’re bringing new insights into the diagnosis and treatment of these patients. In partnership with the Minneapolis Heart Institute®, one of the most comprehensive arrhythmia programs in the country, MHIF conducts research on all types of heart rhythm disorders, ranging from those that are common to those that are rare and inherited.

Under the leadership of Dr. Jay Sengupta, MHIF researchers conduct cutting-edge research to improve and expand treatment options for patients with all types of heart rhythm disorders. As part of this work, researchers also monitor and analyze the safety and effectiveness of implantable cardiac devices. While the scope of heart rhythm disorders is broad, the different elements are interconnected. MHIF’s electrophysiology research team also works closely with MHIF’s heart failure and structural heart disease researchers, since many heart rhythm conditions often have associations with other heart conditions.

This presentation will give an overview of the new MHIF Heart Rhythm Science Center and offer insight into the inspiring research taking place there.
