They diagnose and manage different heart rhythms and perform surgery to insert cardiac devices to control the arrhythmia or for accurate rhythm diagnosis.
The Australian Heart Foundation recommends that if you are aged 45 and over, or 30 and over if of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent then you should see your GP about your cardiac health.
